Charity Initiative, Lets Travel for Children, Launches
Tour Operator Lets Travel is one of the biggest travel agents for inbound tourism in the UK. CEO and Founder of the business Chirag Golwala started the business with just £2,000 investment from The Prince’s Trust. From this loan Chirag has built a business that is now worth a seven figure sum. Lets Travel now has a number of offices across the globe and boasts a team of 100 employees.
Having started from charity, Chirag is keen to give back and has launched new charity initiative: Lets Travel for Children. This first fundraising project of its kind is not only giving to the next generation but the donors as well! Lets Travel for Children is urging Londoners to give what they can. In return for their generosity donors will enjoy a day trip to Brighton or Oxford, Blenheim & Bicester Village courtesy of Lets Travel on the 19th November.
Donations big, or as small as £5 will secure contributors a place on an enjoyable luxury day trip and a child an all-expenses paid education in action experience. ALL donations will go towards arranging a truly memorable day out to Strafford Upon Avon. Up to 750 of London’s least affluent school children will benefit.
Chirag Golwala, Founder & CEO of Lets Travel Services says: “Despite being an advanced city with world class facilities, we also have many economically challenged boroughs in London with thousands of underprivileged children and families. I had empty pockets when I started Lets Travel with the help of the Prince’s Trust. It is only right that we do whatever we can to give something back to society.”
Those who answer the call to #paywhatyoucan will be rewarded with their own impressive day trip itinerary! Donors who opt for a trip to Oxford & Blenheim will enjoy a guided walking tour covering all famous landmarks before exploring Blenheim Palace Park &Gardens, the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Within this majestic setting, donors can Christmas shop in style with high quality crafts, gifts and food marquees in the Great Court. The festivities will conclude at the region’s ultimate shopping destination Bicester Village with an exclusive 10% VIP discount.
Donors fancying some seaside action will enjoy all the best attractions Brighton has to offer. Kick off with breath-taking views from the world’s tallest moving observation tower, designed by the London Eye architects the British Airways i360. Followed by a stroll along the Brighton Pier and the Royal Pavilion. Round off the day in the in famous shopper’s paradise, Lanes Shopping Street.
Lets Travel for Children’s charity partner The Apples & Pears Foundation is dedicated to inspiring children by enabling them to explore learning opportunities outside the confines of the classroom.
Khawar Malik, Chief Executive at The Apples & Pears Foundation says: “We’re delighted to be the charity partner for this innovative initiative which will allow up to 500 children from 7 of our partner schools across London to experience the magic of Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon for the first time. Trips like these are increasingly rare for many children across the country but crucial for development skills and making education fun!”
Donations are welcomed and appreciated even if you can’t join the Pay What You Can trips.
