Wellswood branch profile

Welcome to Hays Travel Wellswood, where I have been the proud Manager since December 2012. I have been in travel for 25 years and during this time I have visited a number of lovely destinations. My number one being Florida, which offers so much to do at the Theme Parks in Orlando, fantastic beaches in Miami and not forgetting - the amazing Florida Keys. My travels have incorporated Spain and the Canary Islands and numerous visits to the Caribbean.

Our friendly team have a wealth of travel experience to make sure we find your dream holiday. Rachel, our Assistant Manager, she joined us in September 2016 with 15 years of experience within the Travel sector, she has a wealth of knowledge on a variety of Worldwide destinations and having travelled on several occasions to Australia she is now our registered Australia Specialist. Berni is our Senior Travel Consultant, joined the company in July 2015 and has been in the Travel industry for 17 years. Bernie has travelled to various islands in the Caribbean and has experienced a lot of European holidays but most recently she has had a memorable visit to China. Faye originally joined the team in 2003 and works as Senior Travel consultant part-time. Her travels have taken her around the world, with New Zealand, New York and China being some of her favourite places.

Joanne Our Foreign Exchange consultant,joined the company in July 2013 and brings 14 years of travel know-how. She has experienced many types of holidays. Her favourite places include The Gambia, Thailand and Disneyland Paris. Amy is our second year apprentice, she started here in December 2014 and has travelled to a few places in Europe including, Turkey, Spain, Belgium and Paris. Her favourite destinations were definitely Turkey and Disnleyland Paris.

How we engage with the local community

In July 2016, four of our staff members, Faye Laukkanen, Bernadette Moffatt, Amy Hogan and Ellie Rees, completed the Sleep Walk in order to raise money for Rowcroft Hospice. This cause is dear to all our hearts as they provide comfort, support and specialist care to over 2,200 terminally ill patients and their loved ones across South Devon each year. We were amazed at the turn out and although hard work, it was worth it as the night raised a staggering £138,230!

We have also donated £250 to Ilsham C of E Academy, which went towards transportation for a school trip to see ‘Hetty Feather’. This was a lovely, educational trip and the children were buzzing with excitement on the day! Amy (our second year apprentice) took part in skydiving to raise money for a local charity called Dream-A-Way. We chose to support this cause as it helps people with disabilities and learning difficulties go on holidays and fun days out. The skydiving event raised over £200, which all went to this worthy charity.

We have pleasure in donating monies to provide a Polytunnel Greenhouse for the children of our local primary school. The greenhouse will allow the young children to grow and nurture plants, fruit and vegetables within a safe and dry environment. They will be attending local outdoor and charitable events providing their home grown produce for sale, were the monies will be re-invested in supplying more seeds to cultivate a variety of seasonal produce in the future. We hope that this will encourage Horticultural Learning into the school curriculum programme. Good luck to you all from all the girls in the Wellswood Store.

Finally, we have donated £100 to a wonderful young boy called Finley who, due to a rare condition, has trouble with mobility. As a result, he needs to raise money to purchase a special wheelchair to assist him with moving around. We met Finley in our branch and it was a pleasure to help such an inspiring and positive boy.
