Gulliver's to host annual food bank weekend

GULLIVER'S theme parks are to host their annual food bank weekend to raise stocks for worthy causes around the country.  The event, which will be held over the weekend of  6 May and 7 May 2017, will be another chance to get a discounted entry to Gulliver's World, Warrington, by simply bringing along a food donation; with tickets priced at only ₤11 per person. The annual event has enjoyed increasing success since its inception in 2013, with many hundreds of families turning out to support their local community by donating vast amounts of food aid each year.  In 2016 the event generated massive public support, with almost 10 tonnes of produce accumulated for distribution around the country.

Dean Kimberley, Gulliver's Director of Guest Services, said:- "We are really excited about this year's food bank weekend. Last year exceeded all expectations, not only with the amount of people coming through the gates but the sheer amount of food we collected, it really was a testament to people's generosity. With that in mind, we look forward to doing it all over again and would love to see you at Gulliver's World over the weekend."

Donations collected at Gulliver's World, Warrington, will be taken to the Trussell Trust who develop, run, and enable community projects that combat poverty and exclusion.  Anne Danks, Operations Manager, England, at the Trussell Trust, said:- "This is wonderful opportunity for people to come and support their local food bank. Last year's event at Gulliver's was a great success and the Trussell Trust is proud to be partnering with them on this. I would encourage people to get down to Gulliver's World and show their support."

Guests who choose to bring along food items to receive their discounted admission are encouraged to bring only non-perishable produce. Examples of suggested food donations can be found at online.

To find out when the next Gulliver's Food Bank weekend is taking place, and for news of other special events and discounts at all three parks, keep an eye on Gulliver's website.
