Two local choirs joined forces to raise over £1,000 for local terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children at a Carol Concert on Saturday 11th December.

The Egerton Primary School Choir and the Knutsford Star Choir performed for around 200 people, all of whom turned out for an evening of festive fun and fundraising for The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust.

Guests were kept well fed and watered at the event thanks to Booths supermarket who donated Tea, Coffee and delicious mince pies.

CAFT Community Fundraiser, Julie Gray, gave a talk about the charity and how important the money raised at the event would be to the children they support.  She comments: “This was such a lovely evening, really festive with a lovely sense of community spirit.  We are so grateful to the choirs for giving their time up for The Adventure Farm – and for singing so beautifully!

The money raised at the event will provide a Christmas Party to children in desperate need here at CAFT this year.  We really can’t thank the organisers, choirs and guests enough.”

Knutsford Star Choir conductor Nick Montague also comments: “We were delighted to support CAFT with this event, it is an amazing charity which changes the lives of local children.”  He adds: “Our choir is currently looking for new members, rehearsals start again on the 6th January.”

The charity relies totally on donations and support in order to raise the £750,000 it needs to continue their work. If you would like further information about CAFT please visit their website www.caft.co.uk
