The Italian Awards team are very happy to announce their official charity partner for 2016 as Cheshire based The Childrens’ Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT)!
“CAFT is based at the beautiful Booth Bank Farm, a 17th Century farmhouse set in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. They provide 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.
Each child is treated as an individual with their own strengths, likes and dislikes, disability is never seen as a barrier to participation.”
Awards CEO Warren Paul said of this new partnership, “we’re very happy to be supporting a charity that has such a positive influence on the lives of children and families across the North West. The Italian Awards have always had a close relationship with the general public, as it is they who lead the awards in nominating and supporting their favourite Italian businesses, so it feels like a great fit to showcase and support such a local charity.”
Organisers aim to promote CAFT’s work throughout the 2016 campaign of the English Italian Awards as well as dedicated fundraising efforts at our Gala Final in Manchester in September.
