Deprived children everywhere need our help, whether it's to educate street children, to parent abandoned babies or to make life easier for seriously or terminally ill children and their families, both in the UK and overseas.We therefore invite all of you to contribute to this vital cause by adding a voluntary donation of £1.00 to the price of your holiday when booking.
Of course, you can remove it, but it’s a sum none of us will miss and we urge you to make this contribution to the world’s deprived children. Every penny will go to children’s charities overseas and in the UK. We too intend to do our bit with you by making significant donations from our own resources to boost your contributions and we shall keep you updated through our website with details of the money donated and the projects that YOU have helped to fund with us. We cannot solve child poverty and deprivation at a stroke, but with your help we can give deprived children everywhere a brighter future.
To date, the Olympic Holidays Childcare Fund has donated over £100,000 to children’s related charities in the UK and overseas.

Transitions UK is a new Charity, established in October 2014, and working initially across Herts, Beds and Bucks and North London. They are concerned for what has been called a 'lost generation' of young people in our country and are determined to make an impact in the way that we address the pressing needs among 15-25 year old in England and Wales. The plan is to grow in number and in geographical coverage and meet the needs of thousands of young people every year.
