In September, Pudsey Bear went on a 25-day whirlwind tour of the UK – stopping at our 35 coastal holiday parks on the way! The fantastic Haven team and holidaymakers were raising money for BBC Children in Need to help us reach our £200,000 fundraising target.
Kicking off the trip at Haven HQ in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, on the 31st August, Pudsey travelled 2,155 miles around the whole British coastline, travelling by speedboats, trains, horse and carts and fire engines between the holiday parks.
Alongside this event, the parks have been putting on fun days, concerts, bake sales and sponsored Quadrathlons, a Guinness World Record beating the ‘longest ever game of pool’ and teams climbing peaks, such as Kilimanjaro! From this, I am happy to report, we have now flown over the £200,000 target, thanks to the creativity, time and effort and generosity of everyone involved.
