Charities we support
We provide ongoing support to three nominated charities every year, each chosen by the Roberts family. At least two of the charities selected are local, but we also welcome ad-hoc requests from other fundraisers and organisations. Our nominated charities for 2017 are:
The Children's Adventure Farm Trust
Based in Altrincham with facilities spread over 10 acres, CAFT brings a little light and fun into the lives of children who have known terrible hardships at such an early age. Providing a variety of programmes for terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children, from all over the North West, each child who attends the Adventure Farm is treated as an individual with their own strengths, likes and dislikes, with disability never treated as a barrier to participation.
Prevent Breast Cancer
The only UK charity entirely dedicated to the prediction and prevention of breast cancer, Prevent is committed to freeing the world from the disease altogether, making it avoidable for future generations, through focus on prevention rather than cure. Through the promotion of early diagnosis, screening and advice on lifestyle changes, the charity also collaborates with others, such as the Manchester Breast Centre, to influence change in breast cancer services, and join up with the best experts in the field, which enables Prevent to remain at the forefront of the UK’s preventative research.
St. Luke's Hospice
St Luke’s Hospice offers a wide range of services to support people living with life limiting illnesses in mid and south Cheshire. The focus is on caring, whether this be for symptom control, palliative care or through complementary therapies, individuals enter a positive environment, with professionals supporting the wide ranging needs of those visiting the centre, based in Winsford. The charity also provides support for the families of patients, offering counselling, bereavement support and ‘time out’ activities.
