Wookey Hole is thrilled to announce The Rendezvous as its Charity of the Year for 2024.

Every coin tossed into the magical Wookey Hole wishing well will go directly to the Somerset and Dorset charity, The Rendezvous, for the next 12 months, transforming wishes into practical help for local young people.

For nearly three decades, The Rendezvous has been a beacon of hope for young people aged 13-25 in South Somerset and North Dorset. With a dedicated team and amazing volunteers, they provide vital support in mental health, wellbeing, learning programmes and young parent projects. Helping more than 300 young people each year, The Rendezvous is all about resilience, confidence and brighter futures.

The partnership with Wookey Hole is the first significant corporate sponsorship brought in by The Rendezvous’ new community fundraising manager, Fiona Franklin, who has joined the charity to help safeguard the future of its critical services.

Fiona said: “The work of the Rendezvous team fills a vital gap in services for young people in our area and genuinely helps change lives. The partnership with Wookey is perfect, taking people’s wishes and turning them into a promise to support and uplift our community's youth.” 

Wookey Hole and The Rendezvous are also delighted to announce, ‘A Day of Daring: Charity Wild Wookey Event’. Ten plucky adventurers will be chosen by ballot to complete the award-winning, Wild Wookey Adventure Caving Course on Friday, July 12, to raise money.
