Holiday Extras is a responsible, active member of the community. We play a positive role through responsible corporate policies, including a yearly sponsorship programme for sports teams that are close to the hearts of our employees and a Cyclescheme that encourages our team to cycle to work.
The team at Holiday Extras is determined to raise funds for Kent's worthwhile causes. Sponsoring local people and events, regular fundraising activities and straight-out gifts, Holiday Extras pledges support to a variety of local charities and community organisations.
Mimi Anderson collects a cheque for £400 from Holiday Extras' Commercial Director, Sean Hagger. Funds will be put towards accommodation and permits along the route.
Mimi's fund-raising challenge will start on the 26th September 2014 alongside runner Samantha Gash. They will run 64 marathons, back to back in just 32 days along the Freedom Trail in South Africa. That's two marathons a day!.
