Pupils at Gorsey Bank Primary School were delighted to take part in helping the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) raise £24k in 24 hours.
Children at the school have really enjoyed the mass sports afternoon held on the 6th of October. Pupils showed great spirit and really enjoyed themselves, as well as learning about the importance of giving back to others through charities. They took part in sports such as tennis, hurdles, races and much more!
The pupils brought in selection boxes to donate to CAFT as part of our Christmas charity collection. The pupils collected a total of 121 selection boxes.
Hannah Grahame, a fundraiser from CAFT said:
“We are so grateful to all who play their part in making these special moments for so many children in December. Thank you Gorsey Bank for all your support again this year. You have collected so many selection boxes which will be enjoyed by children when they visit the Farm in the next few weeks. It is wonderful that your young pupils are showing such charitable spirit.”
The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust is Gorsey Bank’s chosen charity for the year and provides support and respite for children who are terminally ill, disabled or disadvantaged.
Set in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, it provides opportunities for children of all ages and abilities in activities such as art, music and gardening and includes an adventure play area, sensory rooms, soft play and, of course, the much-loved farm animals.
Joe Maguire, Head of Gorsey Bank said:
“We really value our continued relationship with the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust. By working closely with specific charities over sustained periods, our children build up a real sense of what the term charity means and get to see (many of them in person) where their fundraising efforts have had a genuine impact on the lives and experiences of others.”
