We are fortunate to receive support from a large variety of Community Groups from throughout the North West. This support is provided in a number of ways, including adopting us as a charity of the year, making us beneficiary of fundraising events and sponsoring a child to visit here.
We actively encourage groups to visit our facilities. This enables them to see how their money is being spent and to appreciate the huge difference it makes.
There are lots of ways your organisation could support The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust, so help us to help you and have a glance through some of our suggestions…
Here at CAFT, we work very closely with a number of selected schools in a fantastic, mutually beneficial way. Not only do we benefit from the pupils’ fundraising, but the school and pupils themselves benefit through their interaction with us and the children who come here. The pupils gain valuable life lessons and experience and are able to put into practise some of their school projects and lessons in a variety of ways such as Enterprise Week, working in the community, charity and PSHE work.
For example we have had close links with Altrincham Grammar School for Boys and Alderley Edge School for Girls over the last few years, during which time they have raised a substantial amount of money and helped many sick, disadvantaged and disabled local children. We have also been so pleased to welcome some of their pupils for visits, work experience and team builds. Some of the pupils have also carried out their Duke of Edinburgh training/experience here at the Adventure Farm. The Drama group from AESG even participated in our Christmas party programme in 2011 by dressing up as Christmas mascots (a fabulous 7ft reindeer and snowman!) and entertaining the children during their magical day at CAFT.
If your school may be interested in becoming involved and adopting CAFT us your charity of the year, or if you have another long term project in mind, please contact Rob Bashforth to discuss this further on 01565 830 053.
