Law firm stages 10k walk for local children’s charity
The event is being organised by solicitor Lottie Tyler and partner Tina Dunn from Mace & Jones family team. Mrs Dunn explained that as an event organised by the family team it was open to staff and their whole family to take part.
Mrs Dunn said the firm had chosen to help The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust as it receives no statutory funding and relies totally on public support and donations to raise its £700,000-a-year running costs.
“We know what terrific work the farm does supporting terminally ill, chronically sick, disabled and disadvantaged children and their families from across the North West,” she said. “We are looking for sponsorship and urge local businesses and people to get behind us in aid of this extremely worthwhile charity that makes such a difference to the community.”
CAFT’s President is Manchester United and England legend Sir Bobby Charlton and its patrons include Manchester comedian Jason Manford.
Children’s Adventure Farm Trust background
The concept of The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) was conceived in 1985 by a small group of volunteers that included its former Founder Patron, Tim Grundy. Based around a beautiful 17th century farmhouse, in the heart of Cheshire countryside, the Charity offers free adventure breaks and activities to children who are disadvantaged by illness, disability and poverty, from all over the Northwest.
