Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

ACHARITY which pro­vides hol­i­days for poorly and dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren will ben­e­fit from this year’s North East Cheshire Busi­ness Awards.

The Chil­dren’s Ad­ven­ture Farm Trust, based at Booth Bank Farm, in Milling­ton, pro­vides a va­ri­ety of pro­grammes for ter­mi­nally ill, dis­abled and dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren from all over the North West.

The needs of the chil­dren vis­it­ing The Ad­ven­ture Farm range from com­plex and se­vere phys­i­cal and learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties, sen­sory im­pair­ments and ter­mi­nal ill­nesses through to chil­dren who act as Car­ers for a fam­ily mem­ber, those deal­ing with be­reave­ment and chil­dren who have been vic­tims of abuse.

It has been cho­sen as this year’s ben­e­fi­ciary of the North East Cheshire Busi­ness Awards, which chooses a charity to sup­port at the awards cer­e­mony each year.

Last year, The Rossendale Trust were the part­ner charity, en­joy­ing great ex­po­sure in all the mar­ket­ing ac­tiv­ity in the run up and dur­ing the event and ben­e­fit­ing from over £4,000 raised on the awards night it­self, as well as plenty of brand ex­po­sure.

Rob Bash­forth, com­mu­ni­ties fundraiser, said: “The Chil­dren’s Ad­ven­ture Farm is a shin­ing light in the lives of spe­cial chil­dren who have only known so much hard­ship.

“I’m de­lighted that we have been se­lected by Mac­cles­field cham­ber of com­merce to be this year’s charity for the awards.

“This gives us a great op­por­tu­nity to work and fundraise with lo­cal busi­nesses in the area, which in turn will di­rectly help the chil­dren who come to visit us at the Ad­ven­ture Farm.

“It is also so im­por­tant for us as a small charity to spread aware­ness of our won­der­ful fa­cil­ity.”

The charity, which was started in 1985, was cho­sen to ben­e­fit from the awards af­ter the or­gan­is­ers put out an ap­peal for a wor­thy cause.

How­ever the charity part­ner for 2017 will be the winners of the new Charity of the Year cat­e­gory at this year’s event, with char­i­ties across the east Cheshire re­gion en­cour­aged to en­ter.

The award will go to a charity based within the north east Cheshire area that ben­e­fits peo­ple lo­cally, though not ex­clu­sively, and makes a real im­pact on the charity sec­tor it is work­ing within.

The clos­ing date for en­tries is 30 Septem­ber 2016. En­try is free and forms are avail­able via the web­site www.necb awards.co.uk.
