THE Children’s Adventure Farm Trust are delighted that donations have started to arrive for their 2019 Selection Box Appeal.

Several boxes have already been dropped off at Warrington Fire Station and to offices here at the Warrington Guardian.

The charity, based just outside of Lymm, will provide a magical Christmas Party experience this year for around 1,600 children from all over the north west.

These children have a range of personal challenges, including those with terminal illnesses, disabilities and social disadvantages which make it difficult for them to enjoy the festive season as all children should.

With the help of their supporters, the charity will provide 43 parties, including four parties each for 150 children, starting on Monday, November 18.

Each child will be given a bag full of gifts to take away with them, which includes a selection box, which is why the charity is appealing to Warrington Guardian readers for help.

Last year, the charity collected 3,895 boxes through their appeal, with 736 coming from generous donors in Warrington – and this year they would like to collect even more.

Boxes will be given not only to the children visiting CAFT for a Christmas party, but also to others who are not able to attend a party so the Christmas joy will be spread throughout the region to a number of schools, community groups and other charities.
