Employees at a holiday company are taking on a series of challenges to raise money for a family wellbeing charity.

The product team at Lowestoft-based Hoseasons will climb Snowdon, brave a skydive and take on the Tour de Broads in an attempt to reach their £10,000 fundraising target.

Money is being raised for the Family Holiday Association, a charity providing seaside breaks and day trips for families struggling with issues including disability, severe illness and mental health.

The team hope their efforts will allow about 50 families to go on well-deserved seaside breaks in the UK.

Scott Drew, head of product at Hoseasons, said: “We’re delighted to work with the Family Holiday Association and support such a worthwhile charity. Taking a break can make a real difference when it comes to family wellbeing and there’s no better place than the seaside to put a smile on people’s faces.”
