Julia Blazer, the company founder and MD, came up with the idea for Good Day Out whilst grappling with how to make a living in a beautiful rural area. She hoped to not only showcase 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 being similar to buying a goat for a deserving community, but in this happy instance you also get to play with the goat for a few hours!
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.
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 aim is to expand throughout the UK, so if you know of any great activities out there we’d love to add them to our great causes.
Not only do we provide family group days out, but we can also create unique and exclusive team building days for your business.
If you’re bored of the standard corporate team building experiences, let us build you an incredible day or week filled with once-in-a-lifetime experiences for you and your team. Your employees will love working together to keep all of their sheep in line, eating their lunch on the top of the mountain, and building a traditional hedge together to guarantee they’re working smoothly as a team.
