James Villa Holidays Charity Work and Fundraising


Our Charity Work

Created and based in Kent, James Villas has always been an active and present company in the local community. Since 2010 we have exclusively dedicated our fundraising efforts to a chosen annual charity, in doing this we can put all our efforts and hard work into truly making a difference to one cause. 

Throughout the year our devoted team of charity coordinators organise fundraising days and events ranging from bike rides to bake sales where we ask our employees to get involved. With such a passionate workforce there’s always a great turnout and a huge effort made with costumes, baking and donating – not forgetting those that go the extra mile (literally!).

Current Charity - Porchlight

This year we have chosen to support Porchlight, a local Kent based homelessness charity. Porchlight help people who have nowhere to go and no-one to turn to. Some are already homeless while others are struggling to cope with the pressures in their lives. Porchlight help families, children, young people and adults with support around housing, education and employment. They help bring back their self-esteem and sense of self-worth to themselves and to those around them, to encourage a positive outlook and influence on the local community and to bring a sense of belonging. Porchlight also help give guidance and support with many mental health issues and general wellbeing. Find out more by visiting the Porchlight website.

Since January 2017 we have been fundraising for them through various events. One of our biggest days so far was World Travel Day where all departments dressed up as different countries and brought in yummy food to match. Porchlight popped in to help judge our whacky costumes as well as educate us on their amazing work. Take a look at some more of our previous events as well as some exciting ones still to come.
