We're giving something back!

From supporting our local communities, how we buy sustainably, to recycling and charity events...we're on a journey...a journey as holiday heroes to make things better!

Away Resorts is committed to giving back! Each year, our employees choose which national charity they'd like us to support - through dedicated fundraising and events. As well as this, we'll also support local businesses and local heroes that deserve some love! All badged under 'Hug a Hero'.

We're also dedicating more time to how we buy and source our products - from building materials, to the food we serve, to recycling initiatives on the park. Our welcome goodies for example that can be found in all Exclusive accommodation are ethically sourced and recycable, as well as a sustainable bag for life with complimentary toiletries that are vegan friendly, and cruelty free! The businesses we buy from are also committed to giving back and that's important to us too.

Plus, as well as our ongoing replacement of park vehicles and buggies to electric or hybrid (where possible), we are now using Bio-LPG blend Calor Gas saving about 162 tonnes of carbon annually!

10K walk for Multiple Sclerosis Society

In September 2021, our Commercial Marketing Team walked 8 miles together to help raise an incredible £1,082 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. This money helps to fund vital research as well as help to support those living with the condition. And to match the MSS brand colours, the team were all dressed in orange!
