Thanks to £650 raised through sales in the office tuck shop, the money was donated to CAFT to buy much-needed outdoor wear so youngsters can take part in activities like den-building and feeding farm animals while visiting the farm.
Based at Booth Bank Farm in Millington, the charity provides holidays, respite care and activity days for terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children from across the north west.
“With running costs of more than £1 million a year, we simply don’t have funds to buy extra items like outdoor clothing and we rely on donations from our generous supporters.
“This fantastic donation from Roberts means that the children will stay warm and dry whilst enjoying lots of outdoor activities that will really help to enrich their lives.”
Roberts family member Lindsay Occleston went along to CAFT with Roberts’ community group member Rachel Dickinson, to meet some of the children and present the new clothing.
The kit includes warm hats, gloves, waterproofs, aprons, wellies and wellie liners.
