BIG4 Castlemaine is proud to be the first holiday park in Australia to donate nights across our accommodation range to the not-for-profit Otis Foundation.
Founded in Bendigo, Central Victoria in 2000, Otis gifts retreat accommodation to those dealing with breast cancer. We offer twelve, three-night stays in our luxury accommodation range each year to support this wonderful organisation.
We believe The Otis Foundation aligns with our mission of creating special holiday experiences and memories for our guests. Otis offers accommodation at no cost to those experiencing the challenges of breast cancer, providing opportunities to enjoy time away with loved ones from often gruelling medical schedules. This quality time away gives Otis Guests time to relax, reconnect, regroup and make very special and meaningful holiday memories at a time when they are most needed.
We’re so pleased our search for a meaningful charity partner as part of our community responsibilities, and the connections and experiences around breast cancer among our team, led us to The Otis Foundation.
If you would like to learn more about the Otis Foundation and the inspiring work it is doing, visit their website here.
And if you would like to see us provide further accommodation opportunities to Otis, you can make a tax-deductible donation directly to the Foundation here. A donation from $150 gifts a no-cost holiday night, and $1,000 can provide a week’s stay.
“My son and I were lucky enough to enjoy a beautiful week at BIG4 Castlemaine Gardens Holiday Park. It is just what we needed! There were plenty of activities to do around Castlemaine but also the peace and quiet to relax. We are so appreciative to The Otis Foundation & BIG4 Castlemaine for all their hard work to ensure these getaways are possible.”
