Local charity the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust have been into school to collect a cheque for £400 from the Stopfordian Parents’ Association, raised at the Junior School summer fair.
The charity provides holidays and activities for terminally ill, chronically sick, disabled and disadvantaged children from all over the north-west.
Julie Gray from the charity, pictured above with Sally Jones from the SPA and the Junior School head boy and head girl, came into assembly to receive the cheque and tell the children how the money they raised will be spent.
Mrs Jones, the vice chair of the SPA, said:
The events organised by the SPA not only raise money to buy extras for the children to enjoy at school, but also to help those less fortunate than us, hence this gift to the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust.
This charity was chosen by the SPA to receive some of the money raised at the Summer Fair because it is local, helps children and provides summer activities, which is what our children enjoyed at the fair.
