Hello and a very happy New Year to you!

13th January 2020

Up in the woods a new and exciting project is underway; the “All Out Adventure” project! With help from the wonderful Joy and lots of volunteers, our wooded area is being transformed into a safe space in which to provide an extended range of activities out in the environment. The All Out Adventure project is intended to encourage our special visitors to embrace their sense of adventure and exploration. Through woodland crafts, outdoor survival and problem solving skills, games and interactive skills plus the team working, we hope that the children, families and carers will experience lifelong changes through the project. Advancing beneficiaries knowledge, confidence and motivation with added benefits to mental health, wellbeing and physical health, we aim to promote an ongoing commitment and passion to the environment for both the children and adults alike.

The All Out Adventure project is indeed a big project but a very exciting one nonetheless. This week volunteers will be felling trees, marking out play areas and setting up mud kitchens, plus much much more. All the hard work will be worth it in the end when we see the children having fun in the new adventure here at the Adventure Farm.

Indoors meanwhile, fundraising staff are busy planning out a year of events and challenges. In March we have the Vietnam to Cambodia cycling challenge. In May our Annual Golf Day is back followed a month later by the Ladies Lunch. Our Open Day has moved from September to July and in September another oversees challenge; to India this time for a Trek to the source of the Ganges. The year will be finished off with our grand annual ball. For a full list of dates, plus event and challenge details, take a look at our our diary .

And finally, we have totted up last year’s numbers and we are thrilled to report that The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust helped 3,890 children in 2019 with 1,534 coming at Christmas alone. This year, our aim is to help 5,369 disabled, disadvantaged and terminally ill children from across the North West. We will keep you updated with our progress throughout the year.

If you would like to help us give more deserving children a lovely little visit to the Farm this year, please donate today. All donations, big and small, help us to help the children who need it the most.
