Theme park staff to take One Giant Leap for local charity

A team from Gulliver’s Theme Park Resorts are set to put their best foot forward and take One Giant Leap for a much-loved charity.

The team of 21 fundraisers will take on the One Giant Leap challenge, walking from Gulliver’s Kingdom in Matlock Bath to their newest theme park Gulliver’s Valley in Rotherham, on 13 July 2021 to raise vital funds for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice in Sheffield.

The 25-mile adventure is also a way for the Gulliver’s team to come together and mark the one-year anniversary of when Gulliver’s Valley opened in July 2020.

In addition, Gulliver’s will also be donating £1 from every Gully Town Tots ticket sold in the week of the walk (12-16 July) to Bluebell Wood.

Dean Kimberley, director of guest services at Gulliver’s Valley Theme Park Resort, said: “Our wonderful walking team made up of employees from all four Gulliver’s Parks are all set to walk from Gulliver’s Kingdom to Gulliver’s Valley to raise money for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, which is a fantstic charity.

“We know what a difference Bluebell Wood makes to the lives of families who need their care and support and we are hoping to raise as much money as we can to support this fantastic charity.”

The walkers will be leaving Gulliver’s Kingdom at 9am on 13 July and hope to arrive at Gulliver’s Valley at 6pm.

Added Dean: “It’s such a wonderful opportunity for our teams to get together to help support a local charity, and to mark the first year of Gulliver’s Valley being open for business. It’s been a year like no other so we are looking forward to doing what we can to support Bluebell Wood.

Jason Gossop, regional fundraiser at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, said: “We’re absolutely delighted that the Gulliver’s team have chosen to fundraise for us.

“Support from local businesses like Gulliver’s is incredibly important in helping us to make magical memories with families in the precious time they have together.

“We’d like to wish the intrepid team all the best on their One Giant Leap and we’re looking forward to continuing working closely with them in the future.”
