HFE Donate Rigid Signs to Help CLIC Sargent
25th February 2015
Every year the National Forest Adventure Farm run an event for charity called the Adventure Farm Agrilympics. This is a team event, where we invite local businesses, clubs and pubs (plus groups of friends!) to enter and take part in a number of wild and whacky farm-based events such as Round Bale Roll, Carry Your Wife and the Tractor Pull. This competition will be happening on the evening of 20th June, and we will be encouraging not just competing teams to come along, but also, for a very small entrance fee, all their supporters. The antics will be complimented by a live band and a BBQ, so should be a fantastic night out.
This event is run for a different charity each year, and this becomes the farms “Charity of the Year”. During the lead up to the Agrilympics the Adventure Farm also do whatever they can to raise additional money to bump up the total donated, and one of the ideas the staff came up with (at the pub after work, where all the best ideas come from!), was to create the equivalent of a wishing well in the events barn, which has been transformed into a pastoral farmyard scene for our Springtime Pantomime, running during the next 2 weeks for half term holidays. Few children can resist throwing in a coin and making a wish, and it will hopefully encourage generosity on the part of the parents if they see the foamex signs for “Quackers Wishing Pool” this sign has been kindly donated by HFE Signs!
About CLIC Sargent 2015 Charity
Today, 10 children and young people in the UK will hear the shocking news that they have cancer.
Treatment normally starts immediately, is often given many miles from home and can last for up to three years. Being diagnosed with cancer is a frightening experience and the emotional, practical and financial implications of treatment are intensely challenging for the whole family.
CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. They provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life. They are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.
