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!
We love fundraising & this year we are supporting Mind! Away Resorts host plenty of fund-raising events and activities, all for this amazing cause! So far we've been able to raise over £2,000!Donate to MIND
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!
We're on a journey to ensure that the carbon we create, is our problem to make right. We 'love our people, and protect our planet' and we want to make the future amazing for everyone!
We're excited to announce we've partnered with Surfers Against Sewage - helping to take action, shouting loudly for our oceans!Find out more
We’re committed to fighting climate change, and doing our part to protect the planet. We know that even the smallest change can help to make a big difference, so by working with Creating Tomorrow's Forests we can help offset some of our carbon footprint by planting trees and creating change.Find out more
From replacing bulbs with LED, to the products we buy to build - we're trying everyday to improve!
All old printers or tech are recycled/donated to local schools, and we're reducing paper usage where possible
We choose suppliers that also do their bit to give back too - Nisa, Biffa, Good Earth Tea just to name a few.
