50 for Free 2017 - Beneficiaries Announced

We are delighted to announce the charities allocated a free stay under 50 for Free scheme for 2017. Their beneficiaries will each enjoy one of fifty free stays in a Landmark in March 2017. 

It is always both humbling and uplifting to read about the wonderful work going on within the charitable & not-for-profit sectors, in so many different fields. Allocating the stays is always a difficult process and we had well over 100 applications this year.  We always try to allocate across a wide variety of good causes and with a full regional spread of beneficiaries 

A full list of the organisations benefiting from the stays is listed below and we look forward to sharing feedback from the organisations after their stays. 

Thank you to our generous private donors who have enabled 50 for Free 2017.
