Charity Partnership

Center Parcs has a proud history of supporting charities that make a difference to families across the UK and now will be doing the same in Ireland. We are passionate about supporting organisations that share our ethos of bringing and keeping families together.

We are delighted to be in partnership with Barretstown and are working hard to raise awareness and vital funds to support the charity. Based in Kildare, Barretstown offer free, specially designed camps and programmes for children living with a serious illness, and their families, supported behind the scenes by 24-hour on-site medical and nursing care.

Barretstown was founded 25 years ago by Hollywood actor Paul Newman and shares much of the same values as we do at Center Parcs, which makes them a perfect partner. Barretstown’s mission is to rebuild the lives of children affected by serious illness and their families. They believe that every child with a serious illness should enjoy their childhood and we at Center Parcs are excited to help them achieve this mission.

Center Parcs receives a huge volume of charity requests each week and, whilst we try to spread our support as much as possible, we are unable to help with every request due to the sheer volume.

If you would like to make a request, please contact our PR team by emailing with as much detail as possible. You will receive an automated response acknowledging your email and we will get back to you within four weeks if we can help. Please note, we are unable to provide donations or prizes for raffles, auctions or fairs.
