What we do for our Community
Paultons is proud to play an active role in our local community and is one of the largest employers in the area. Each year the Park offers help with charity requests and community support, works to help families who need it most and supports teams and events in our local area.
You can learn more about our role in the community by using the links below.
Paultons is a family owned and run business and our directors are pleased to support our local community and their charities in many ways. We offer tickets, sponsor local sporting teams and donate raffle prizes to events taking place within a 10 mile radius of Paultons. We also provide a venue for charity events. We focus our aid on those registered charities where the prime beneficiary will be children i.e. hospital wards, hospices, medical appeals, organisations supporting seriously ill/disabled or disadvantaged children, other child focused groups such as the Girl Guide and Scouting movement and young carer and young volunteer groups. Please note that we don't offer tickets to schools to use in raffles unless they are within our immediate vicinity.
Charity requests should be submitted in writing, on headed paper, at least 6 weeks before the date of any event and sent to the following address:Charity Requests

All letters must detail a valid email address as tickets will be emailed to successful applicants as a PDF attachment. By submitting a request for tickets you authorise for your email address to be registered on our system for the purpose of emailing tickets if successful. If unsuccessful, your contact details will not be registered.
Please note that letters from independent fundraisers will only be considered if a registered charity number or letter of authority is provided. Email requests or messages on social media will not be considered.
We regret that Paultons Park Ltd is unable to donate any Paultons or Peppa Pig products.
As we receive thousands of requests for support each year it is not possible to assist with or respond to all applications. If you have not heard from us within 6 weeks of your submission then we regret that your request has been unsuccessful.
We receive many requests for tickets or special experiences from families with seriously ill, disabled, and disadvantaged children or family members each year. We have a limited number of special tickets available each year to help these families enjoy a day at Paultons and Peppa Pig World. We limit an individual family to a maximum of 5 tickets per year (for the child and immediate family members). We regret we are unable to help with any travel or accommodation costs.
All requests for assistance should be made in writing with documentary evidence to verify the circumstances described in the letter i.e., doctor’s letter, consultant’s diagnosis etc. We require one to two sentences briefly outlining the condition the child or your family member may have including their age and full name as we are often approached by several individuals looking to help the same family.
It may take up to 6 weeks for each request to be assessed by our Board of Directors, however urgent and time critical requests will be dealt with as soon as possible. Please send your request to:The Board of Directors
