Fundraising is an ongoing and integral part of Park House. Varied challenging activities take place to enhance guest stays at the hotel.
During 2010/2011 a massive fundraising effort took place to replace one of the hotel’s minibuses.
Phil Davies, Gerry Bird and Bob Murray cycled from Lands End to John O’Groats between 25 July and 7 August 2010. A stunning achievement which saw the boys cycle an astonishing 1008 miles in 11 and a quarter days, at an average speed of 12.9 miles per hour!
