Charities We Support
Family Holiday Charity
As expert holiday providers, we understand the value in getting away from it all from time to time. Family Holiday Charity help families get time away together, often for the first time ever. They’re there for families’ children who have never seen the sea, for teenagers who can’t remember when they last saw their mum smile. For parents having to choose between a day out and a new pair of school shoes. For young carers, kinship carers, families facing illness isolation and bereavement.
We know the new possibilities holidays can open up. Which is why we’re proud to have supported Family Holiday Charity for more than 12 years, raising over £100,000. Customers who book with us have the option to support this wonderful charity by making a small donation at the time of booking a holiday with us, while we also do some local fundraising at our Dunfermline office.
If you’d like to find out more about Family Holiday Charity, you can visit them here and if you’d like to make a donation, please visit here.
“Our long-standing relationship with Canvas has meant we’ve been able to support hundreds of families get time away together. Time to reconnect, to try new things, and to make happy memories that last a lifetime. We are so grateful to Canvas colleagues and customers for your continued support and enthusiasm for our cause.”

NHS Charities together
We are immensely proud to work with NHS Charities Together, the national collective voice for over 240 NHS Charities in the UK. Donating over £1million a day to the NHS, the charity's great work helps our hospitals do more, so that people can stay well for longer and get better faster.
Our support of NHS Charities Together is our way to thank the NHS and their amazing workers for their outstanding work. Along with donating £1000 directly to the charity, our customers can make a small donation while booking their holiday with us.
The funds raised by NHS Charities Together enable the health service to go above and beyond what would otherwise be possible in these challenging times.

Radio Forth's Cash for Kids
Radio Forth Cash for Kids' mission is to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in our communities who are affected by illness, poverty, neglect or have additional needs. We are hugely proud to work with this brilliant charity, which has made a huge difference to the lives of so many children and youngsters.
As our local charity, our generous staff provide support and donations by raising funds through events and challenges such as Mission Christmas and Bake Sales, as well as direct donations.
“We are delighted to have been selected as the local charity partner of Canvas Holidays. The team have been a real support to Radio Forth over the years; getting involved in the likes of our Mission Christmas campaign, Supervan and even putting up a fabulous holiday voucher for a text to win competition to raise funds. We are looking forward to working with the team across 2021, getting involved in some exciting campaigns and hopefully raising funds for local children that need us most living across Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife.”
