Cofton Fundraising for Children In Need
19 November 2019
On November the 15th the Cofton team went Quakers for Children in Need with a range of exciting fundraising activities throughout the complex.
Children In Need, now in its 39th year, supports over 3,000 projects and charities throughout the UK, with a vision of ensuring every child in the UK has a childhood which is safe, secure and allows them the chance to reach their potential.
Every year the team at Cofton is encouraged to get involved with fundraising activities and this year there was a host of hilarious ideas from all of the different departments.
The total so far raised from the team is in the region of £730.00, with more money still to be counted. Thank you to everyone who got involved,
Here are some of our fundraising activities…
Baking for Children in need
The chefs got busy in the kitchen, with a few helping hands from the reception team to help with the decorations.
The Pudsey shortbread biscuits were a hit with children and adults throughout the day and with a £1.00 donation per biscuit, a great contributor to our total money raised.
A charity head shave
A huge thank you then goes to Nick from the Cofton grounds team, who had his head shaved to raise money for this fantastic cause. He was able to raise hundreds of pounds towards our final total.
Going Quackers for a good cause
Last, but by no means least we have our leisure manager Ian Baker, who got well and truly stitched up, with company directors carefully selecting a fitting fancy dress attire for him to wear.
He was a duck for the day and throughout the day he took to the water with the aqua fitters, threw some shapes in dance fitness and even checked into the onsite shop for a loaf.
Some of your kind words...

I just want to say how impressed my fellow Motorhomers and Caravaners were with the welcome and service we received during our stay. Staff in the office were polite and helpful at all times. Scott the restaurant manager was most accommodating when I enquired about reserving space for 25 to 30 of us for lunch after a walk. The service in the restaurant was speedy the food hot and varied. We were very pleased with the standards. Staff in the restaurant were cheerful and polite and helped make our meal most enjoyable. We had such a good time that we will be returning again next year for our Xmas Rally.
The best holiday park we've been to in our motorhome. Our children aged 2 and 4 loved it. Great facilities, entertainment and activities in one of the best parts of Devon!
Delicious fish and chips, friendly and helpful staff and delightful woodland.

We usually camp 3 times a year and hire a caravan after the Christmas break at Cofton, and will continue to do so. We thoroughly recommend staying there. Great for families or just the 2 of you.
