Daytrippers was an independent charity established in 2003 with the mission of funding day trips and delivering large-scale bespoke events (find out more here).
Before closing in 2021, the charity restructured in 2018 and renamed Daytrippers Foundation, to become a grant-giving organisation. We believed every child has the right to a happy and thriving childhood. Our aim was to fund opportunities for children, young people and families to explore, learn, develop, and achieve. UK special schools, children’s hospices, hospitals, charities, and not-for-profit organisations all were eligable for grants.
Challenge perceptions. Promote inclusive fun for all. Get creative.
Keeley re-joined the Daytrippers team as the Foundation Manager in March 2016. She brought over a decade of experience of working with children, young people and families in the community and public sectors.
Leila helped Daytrippers grow over the years injecting a bit of creativity into our events and had a firm eye on the budgets to ensure funds are best placed to give the most value. Leila is Dyslexic and Neurodivergent.
Jonny founded Daytrippers in 2003 as he wanted to build not just an effective but also an efficient charity. He wanted all young people to have access to the same great experiences that were available to him as a child.
After volunteering with Daytrippers at our Pan-Disability Football Tournament, Simon became hooked and was appointed as a Trustee in the summer of 2014. Simon brought a creative input specialising in creative branding and marketing solutions.
