For many years, Champneys has raised money for charity, with one ‘charity of the year’ receiving all funds. However, in 2006, Champneys Charitable Foundation was registered with the Charities Commission, allowing us to donate money to a larger number of charities and individuals, including The Variety Club, Sue Ryder Hospices, NSPCC, Tommy’s The Baby Charity, The Disability Foundation, CLIC Sargent, and many others who now benefit from our fundraising. In the past we have helped purchase specialist equipment such as wheelchairs, play and sensory room equipment, computers and car seats, all of which make a huge difference to the lives of many.
Regular fundraising events are held throughout the year, including the annual bike ride that takes place around one of our resorts. Champneys Charitable Foundation also organises several high-profile challenging events, which in the past have included life-changing sponsored trips to The Great Wall of China and the Machu Picchu Inca Trail.
Champneys Charitable Foundation particularly likes to support charities nominated by our guests and welcomes requests. Applications for grants can be made by email or in writing and will be discussed at the quarterly board meetings when trustees of the Charity decide how and who we can support. We do also give Champneys guests the option of donating £2 when settling their bill - all money raised goes to Champneys Charitable Foundation.
