To date, we have raised over £4,765 for charity.

We are a big believer in giving back and helping those less fortunate.

Even in our infancy, we came up with ways to raise funds for well-deserved charities: completing the sponsored Westbury to Paris stationary cycle for children in need in 2019. Our staff took turns cycling in the office on a stationary bicycle the equivalent 390 miles, raising £565.

For us, Keeva Travel is not just about helping our customers with their travel needs. We are here to make a difference, give back and change lives wherever we can. There is so much more that we want to do to support our local and global communities, but here are just some of the amazing charities we have been lucky to support over the years:

  • Rays of Sunshine Children’s charity
  • Wessex Heartbeat Cardiac Centre
  • Royal United Hospital Children’s Ward
  • Global Giving (Australian Wildlife Relief Fund)
  • Little Hero

Keeva Travel is a family-owned business that was born following the birth of our first child Keeva. Family is very important to us which is why we have selected to partner with these charities that do a lot to help families through the most trying times in their lives.

This is a charity very dear to our hearts. A good friend of ours endured a loss that no parent should ever have to experience when they lost their little boy Will to a brain tumor.

They set this charity up in his honor to support others experiencing their childhood cancer journey as well as to generate funding to assist the much-needed research into new treatments for pediatric brain tumors.

2. Horatio’s Gardenhttps://www.horatiosgarden.org.uk/

Having experienced first-hand how a spinal injury can destabilize a family and cause upheaval to a person’s life, Horatio’s Garden was a service that I was able to benefit from firsthand during my many months at Salisbury spinal injury unit. The charity creates and nurture’s beautiful gardens in NHS Spinal Injury centers to support everyone affected by spinal injury- patients, their families, and friends facing long stays in hospitals.

Without the garden, I wouldn’t be here. Help us to plant hope for people spending time in Horatio’s Garden sanctuaries across the UK. Visit https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/keeva-travel

We donated £2,720 and we owe a great gratitude to everyone who donated on the JustGiving site and supported our idea. Help us grow together!

We are proud to announce: For every booking we make, £1 of the profit made will be donated to these charities. This is our promise and we are happy to be held to account for it.*

*To arrive at the amounts to be donated, we will on a quarterly basis, (starting from the end of Q1 2022) total up the volumes of bookings made and multiple this by £1.
