Julia Blazer, company founder, came up with the idea of Good Day Out 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.
Our Experience Days and activities are all high engagement, friendly and great fun. You can join in on one of the scheduled dates, or we can look at a special date for a small group (or even larger groups if requested). We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and knowledge of the local area, so are very happy to create tailor-made sessions for alternative hen and stag do’s, as well as team-building days for businesses. We can even book other activities for you locally including gorge walking, horse riding, caving, canoeing and all the other great outdoor activities in the Brecon Beacons area.
Do get in touch with our small friendly team – we look forward to sharing this special place with you!
