Charity donations

Here at the World of Beatrix Potter™ Attraction, we know that together we can make a difference.  Over the last 12 months we have done lots of fundraising and charitable giving to organisations we know make a huge difference in the world.™

World Wildlife Fund

We have chosen to support the WWF this year as our official charity with collection boxes around the building and donations for special events. We're delighted to have raised over £1600 this year!

£16,000 raised by the Peter Rabbit™ Egg Hunt for WaterAid

The famous Lake District Egg Hunt ran for 10 years from 2008 - 2018. We have now totalled up all the money it raised over the 10 years to over £17,500. We are so proud of this achievement and to have made a difference to communities who need clean water to survive.

£9,000 raised for Children's Hospice Derian House

On Thursday 5 July 2018, the NHS turned 70, and over 1,300 visitors poured through the doors of the Attraction completely free of charge. The admission fee that each visitor would have paid was gifted by the Attraction to the Children’s Hospice, Derian House who provide palliative care for youngsters in South Lakes & Lancashire. The day was all about celebrating the achievements of the NHS, one of the nation’s most loved institutions and to appreciate the role it plays in our lives. Watch out for the next FREE entry days in 2020!
