OUR CHARITY

The Thomas Cook Children’s Charity is a grant making charity, that was set up with the aim of improving children’s lives, both in the UK and overseas. Since 2009, we have been raising funds for charities and organisations that work with children in the UK and Overseas by then awarding grants to help them achieve their goals.

The charity’s funds that are raised are awarded to causes and projects focused on improving children’s lives, by helping to improve access to facilities for education, well-being and health care. We are honoured and thrilled to work with some really amazing organisations and feel proud to be part of the brilliant work that they do!

Finally, we couldn’t do all of this without our amazing supporters who very generously donate and fundraise for the charity. Our supporters have made donations and gone above and beyond with their fundraising efforts…..we’d like to say the BIGGEST THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed, it really means a lot!

OUR AIM

The aim of the Thomas Cook’s Children’s Charity is to improve children’s lives and benefit the communities that they live in. We do this by working with charity partners, organisations and individuals that work to benefit the lives of young people.

The Children’s Charity also supports relief efforts in the event of natural disasters. This is a discretionary fund for which there is no open application process. We make every effort to adopt a fair and balanced approach when working with organisations that work globally to help those in need when a disaster strikes.

OUR APPROACH

Our tribe of wonderful TCCC supporters do so by taking part in individual and group challenge events; including sponsored walks, hikes, marathons, bike rides, quiz nights and skydives to name but a few. They also LOVE a bake sale, because lets face it, who doesn’t love cake??

Other places where our funds come in from is through Thomas Cook customers who are given the option to include a £3 donation when booking their Thomas Cook holiday either on-line or in-store with their travel agent. They also have the opportunity to donate unwanted coins in-store and on Thomas Cook Airline flights to and from the UK with the cabin crew. Within some Thomas Cook holiday destinations and in Thomas Cook UK offices, Thomas Cook reps and head office staff will also run fundraising events to further raise awareness and funds for the Thomas Cook Children’s Charity.

Which ever way the funds come in we are eternally thankful to all those that give up their time to raise money for us!!
