Law firm raises over a thousand pounds for children’s adventure farm

By on November 22, 2010

SOLICITORS and their families from Knutsford based law firm Mace & Jones walked 10km to raise money for the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) in Millington.

The event at Tatton Park, which raised £1,100, was organised by solicitor Lottie Tyler and partner Tina Dunn from Mace & Jones’ family team in Knutsford. Mrs Dunn said the firm had chosen to help CAFT as it receives no statutory funding and relies totally on public support and donations to raise its £700,000-a-year running costs.

“It has been a real pleasure to raise money for such a worthwhile organisation,” she said. “Going to the farm to present the money we saw the preparations that are already underway for Christmas. A visit to the farm in the festive season will bring so much excitement to children who need it the most.

“The walk made for a great day out and the brilliant autumn sunshine put everyone in good spirits. We are certainly considering making this an annual event.”

The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust provides holidays and activities for children disadvantaged through poverty, disability or illness.
Mrs Dunn added: “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. We would like to thank all the local businesses and people who sponsored us for the walk, it really does make a difference.”

CAFT’s President is Manchester United and England legend Sir Bobby Charlton and its patrons include Manchester comedian Jason Manford.
