Family adventure centre Stockeld Park has announced a new charity partnership with Martin House Children’s Hospice which aims to raise £30,000.
The adventure park, at Wetherby, hosts special events all year round, and in July opened its new PlayHive – a £3.5 million indoor play centre – and welcomes thousands of visitors every year.
Lizzie Philpott, Partnerships Manager at Martin House, said: “We are delighted to welcome Stockeld Park as our new charity partner, and are looking forward to working with the team there.
“Raising £30,000 through this partnership would enable us to fund one of our specialty doctors for six months, to provide expert care and advice to children and their families when they need it most.”
Stockeld will support Martin House with a range of fundraising initiatives, but is launching this new partnership by adding the option for guests to donate £1 to the hospice on their ticket booking page.
Martin House cares for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions from across West, North and East Yorkshire. Its expert care includes respite stays, symptom control, emergency care, end of life care and bereavement support.
Stockeld Park owner, Peter Grant, said: “Stockeld Park has been helping to support Martin House for a number of years now, and we are delighted to be involved in this new initiative. We feel that our guests will welcome this opportunity to support the wonderful service that Martin House provides.”
