Thomas Cook Children’s Charity is committed to improving children’s lives and benefiting the communities in which they live.
As part of this work they have named a room - called 'Lollo & Bernie’s Room' - in the brand new CLIC Sargent Home from Home in Glasgow. Marion’s House will welcome 300 families to stay each year.
And thanks to generous donations from their customers and employees, Thomas Cook Children’s Charity will also name a second 'Lollo & Bernie’s Room' at the new CLIC Sargent Home from Home in Edinburgh, which is due to open in 2017.
Jamie Queen, Trustee for Thomas Cook Children’s Charity, said: "We’re delighted to be able to support the vital work and services of CLIC Sargent in Scotland and continue to do our bit to improve children’s lives."

CLIC Sargent’s Head of Corporate Partnerships, Celine Stevenson said: "We are absolutely delighted to be working with Thomas Cook Children’s Charity.
"Their generous donation towards our Scotland Home from Home Relocations will mean that families with a child with cancer in Scotland will be able to stay in the Glasgow ‘Lollo & Bernie’s Room’ in Marion’s House from early 2016 and the Edinburgh ‘Lollo & Bernie’s Room’ when the new CLIC Sargent Home from Home opens in 2017.
"We are looking forward to getting to know Thomas Cook employees and achieving great things together in the future."
Flight of Dreams
Thomas Cook Children’s Charity also arranged for 40 CLIC Sargent families, and children being supported by other charities, to participate in its December Flight of Dreams, in conjunction with Bauer Media Group’s ‘Cash for Kids’ charity, Hamleys and Thomas Cook Airlines.
The annual Flight of Dreams offers children and their families the chance to experience a truly magical and festive flight over the UK.
The children had VIP treatment all the way, enjoying entertainment at the airport before taking off on a one hour flight on board the brand new aircraft.
They even had a surprise visit from Father Christmas and his team of elves, receiving a special gift courtesy of Hamleys Toy Shop.
