Corporate Social Responsibility
The LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort’s primary concern is for children. We are delighted to support Merlin Entertainments’ special children’s charity – Merlin’s Magic Wand – who put the magic back into the childhoods of seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged children across the world. By providing tickets and financial support in the form of travel grants, they help thousands of children and their families to have magical days out every year. For children who are too unwell for a day out, they deliver exciting Taking the Magic to the Children projects, ranging from sensory rooms to specially adapted playgrounds.
To find out more about Merlin’s Magic Wand, the eligibility criteria and how you can apply for tickets to LEGOLAND Windsor, please visit www.merlinsmagicwand.org Please note that Merlin’s Magic Wand works directly with children, families and organisations that will benefit from a day out and is unable to provide tickets to assist with fundraising through raffles and auctions.
Our local charity partner is Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service who we work with to arrange magical experiences for the families supported by the charity. The LEGOLAND Windsor Resort is also creating a sensory garden for the new Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice, which opens later in 2018. For more information visit www.alexanderdevine.org
Each year the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort donate a set of family tickets to every child attending one of twelve, state first schools in Windsor. The Resort also has a partnership with the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Children’s Services team to offer a set of free tickets to all foster carer families living within the Royal Borough.
