Good Day Out
Good Day Out offers unique engaging experience days with cute little animals and low key knowledgeable trainers who love what they do. All are held safely in small groups, but private sessions are also available. Based in the Brecon Beacons, South Wales, each experience also gives money to good causes while you have fun on your day out on a piggy walk, sheep dog session or a stroll across the Beacons with dinky donkeys. You can have a good day out whilst doing good! Whilst children are welcome, most of our visitors are adults who just love animals and the outdoors. Fantastic birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas and anniversary presents for all ages that help charities and local good causes whilst you have fun.
Julia Blazer, company founder, came up with the idea whilst grappling with how to make a living in a beautiful rural area with few employment opportunities. She hoped to not only engage people with the incredible sights and unique offerings the area had, but to also provide income for local people and the good causes that each Good Day Out supports. Julia sees the concept as a virtuous circle. With hand-picked local trainers who are passionate about what they do, people can really learn about the area and also have the feelgood benefit of knowing that a donation goes to a designated good cause every time someone has a good day out. Good Day Out’s mission is to provide interesting, educational, and fun ways for people to easily engage with animals, wildlife, the countryside and rural skills, whilst helping the trainers to raise money for specific projects and charities. Every experience day and product purchased on this site gives funds to the designated good cause whilst creating new employment opportunities and helping the local economy. As we’re based in the beautiful Brecon Beacons, we have an emphasis on local good causes and projects. In particular, we have a focus on experiences with an environmental, wildlife, or animal-related emphasis.
