The mission of the Thomas Cook’s Children’s Charity is to improve children’s lives and benefit the communities in which they live through the provision of grants to charities that seek to benefit the lives of young people (up to the age of 18).

We aim to help children and enhance each individual life by focusing on the below four areas:

  • Improving education facilities
  • Improving facilities that provide well-being and health care
  • Caring for the environment
  • Providing safe clean drinking water

The Children’s Charity also supports relief efforts in the event of natural disasters. The Trustees view this as a discretionary fund for which there is no open application process.

We have established ourselves as a Corporate Charity, funds are raised by employees and customers of Thomas Cook UK & Ireland. Both groups are encouraged to nominate charitable causes and projects which meet the above criteria for funding from the charity.

As the Corporate Charity of the second largest tour operator in the UK, we are often asked to provide holidays for sick and disadvantaged children.

However, Thomas Cook UK & Ireland cannot benefit from any of the funds raised. Therefore, we work with a charity partner, Happy Days Children’s Charity, to help us meet this aim.
