The Family Holiday Association has been named as Holiday Autos’ 2017 preferred charity partner.

The car rental comparison firm aims to help the charity in raising funds and awareness for the services it provides to help struggling families take a break.

Head of brands, product and content, Lauren Gourley, said: “We’re aware that not every family is fortunate enough to be able to enjoy a holiday and this is why we have decided to work with the Family Holiday Association.

“We have been hugely impressed by the work they do helping struggling families enjoy a break from everyday stresses and we’re excited to help promote their valuable work this year.”

FHA fundraising manager, Angie Watson, added: “We are so delighted that Holiday Autos has chosen the Family Holiday Association as their first national charity partner.

“We share an understanding of the importance and value of breaks away from home, escaping day to day troubles and creating happy memories.

“To be able to work together to enable families to have precious and often life-changing time away is fantastic.”
