First Choice Holiday Villages have supported Tommy’s since 2008, raising over £600,000 over the past 10 years to help us save babies lives’ across the UK.

In Summer 2018 we were delighted to announce a new partnership with the official foundation of First Choice parent company TUI, the TUI Care Foundation!

This year our partnership will care for 2,500 babies at risk of premature birth through dedicated fundraising days run by the incredible Holiday Villages teams.

Guests at First Choice Holiday Villages across Europe have been taking part in amazing Splashathon charity days for Tommy’s and the TUI Care Foundation. From pool activities to evening entertainment, tots, kids and grown-ups alike all have been having heaps of fun taking part in the fundraising challenges throughout summer!

Families are at the heart of everything we do. Thanks to our partnership with the TUI Care Foundation, Tommy’s and First Choice Holiday Villages can help more families to create more special family moments.

We can’t wait to see all the photos of everyone having fun in the sun!

“The charity day is by far our favourite day. It’s great to see that such a big company supporting Tommy’s. Tommy’s is close to our heart since we lost our first baby. Tommy’s day is when we spend our most money! But it’s also our most fun day!”
