Wood Leisure Holiday Parks are pleased to announce that throughout 2018 we will be sponsoring and working with Maggie's, a charity which is very close to our hearts.

Maggie's has 21 centres throughout the UK, providing free practical, emotional and social support for people who have cancer, and also the friends and families of people suffering from cancer.

This year we will be sponsoring a penguin in Maggie's Penguin Parade as well as looking to get involved with other events throughout the year. 

The artist who will be working on our penguin this year is Ruth Mutch, who has her own penguin inspired business. You can read more about Ruth below.
