This month marked the end of our year-long charity efforts for 2018.
We honour a local charity each year to be our “Charity Of The Year” and 2018 was the turn of Lymm based The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust.
Wayne Shaw, Managing Director at The Window Co said: “As a thank you for our fundraising efforts we were invited down to the farm to present our cheque and help out with one of their legendary Christmas parties. From the 19th November to 19th December the farm gets transformed into a winter wonderland and it’s pretty much Christmas every day where over the month around 1200 children will visit”.
“We had the honour of dressing up in the festive mascot outfits of which included, Rudolph, a Christmas Tree, a Penguin and the biggest Polar Bear you’ll see outside of the North Pole. I’m not sure who enjoyed it the most, the children or us, let’s just say there were a few floss dance off’s between the penguin and Rudolph.”
“The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust is an Amazing local charity that helps thousands of children each year and its one that’s been on our radar for a while now. Fundraising this year has included charity car washes, running marathons, putting on gig nights and cycling from Manchester to Blackpool. As always its a team effort and we’ve all mucked in with the fundraising, including The Window Co WAGS.
“I’m super proud of our team and the way they all actively get involved with our fundraising efforts, every one of us plays a part in helping us raise such an enormous amount of cash. Throughout the year our fundraising efforts have raised a massive £4,564.88 for The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust and it was great being able to hand over the cheque as we know this money is well needed in helping terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children from all over the North West.”
Wayne added: “As a local business I truly believe we have a duty to give back to the community we live and work in. The Children’s Adventure Farm is an Amazing place & it’s right on our doorstep, I encourage any other businesses or individuals who are looking at doing something similar that they seriously consider putting the farm at the top of their list.”
