Festive cheer for children's charity

Festive cheer for childrens charity

Stephensons, the national law firm, has helped bring a some early Christmas cheer to a North West children's charity as part of the firm's commitment to the local community.

Amy Tagoe and Sarah Master's from Stephensons' St Helens office visited staff and volunteers from Children's Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) to deliver 200 selection boxes and hundreds of festive satsumas for children who are disabled, terminally ill or from a disadvantaged background.

CAFT, based at Booth Bank Farm in the Cheshire countryside, provides a variety of programmes for children of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. These include a free holiday programme for up to 26 people (including care staff), respite care, activity days and the annual Christmas party, which welcomes 500 children from across the region.

Stephensons staff nominated CAFT for the firm's 'Charity of the Year' in 2015, raising more than £5,000 through a number of fundraising initiatives. Staff have also volunteered their time to help the charity at events, as well as sponsoring the charity's Christmas party.

Amy Tagoe from Stephensons' housing law team, said: "It was great to pay a visit to our friends at CAFT and help such a fantastic cause.

"Stephensons has been helping the charity at Christmas time for the past three years and we are always blown away by the work they create a magical Christmas for those children that need it most."
