Amber Vehicles support local Easter Egg appeal in aid of CAFT
Alderley Edge-based leasing specialist Amber Vehicle Solutions has supported digital lifestyle brand So Cheshire in its inaugural Easter Egg Appeal this year, in aid of The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust.
Amber Vehicles Solutions teamed up with So Cheshire earlier in the year to sponsor a co-branded Nissan Juke and will have a shared presence at a number of high profile local events.
The partnership has meant that the team behind So Cheshire is able to continue growing brand awareness across the county whilst helping Amber Vehicle Solutions to further engage with businesses and individuals across Cheshire who are looking at options for their next vehicle.
The two firms have also worked hard to ensure they support good causes locally, and the Easter Egg Appeal is an example of an initiative which will see them ‘give back’ to their local communities.
Fundraiser Helen Crowther from The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust visited Amber Vehicle Solutions on Wednesday 12th April to receive the donation of over 150 eggs which will be handed out to children who may not otherwise have received an Easter egg this year.
The farm is hosting a a series of events for children living with difficult lives. The whole site is completely dedicated to giving these children the opportunity to play and laugh - regardless of illness, disability or social circumstance.
The donation of Easter eggs will mean the children visiting the farm over Easter will have an extra-special experience and they’ll enjoy a little treat to bring some added Easter joy.
Richard Price, of So Cheshire, said: “We are delighted to able to support such a worthwhile cause, and are so grateful to Amber Vehicle Solutions for their ongoing support. The vehicle has helped us pick up donations from Waitrose stores right across the county, and deliver them to the charity in time for Easter.
“We’re also very grateful to the Waitrose stores and customers who’ve helped us. The shops have hosted trolleys where shoppers have generously left us donations of Easter eggs. It’s been a brilliant collaboration on all parts, and I couldn’t be prouder to have played a part in it.”
The appeal struck such a strong chord, that one of the county’s Waitrose branches has gone on to pledge its support for The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust with its Community Matters donation scheme next month - this is money the charity will put to good use and will go towards the mammoth £1 million fundraising requirement it must meet each year to keep the doors open.
Helen Crowther from The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust said: “We were absolutely blown away the number of eggs collected during the So Cheshire Easter Egg Appeal.
“It’s so heart-warming when the community comes together to bring smiles to the faces of the children visiting the Adventure Farm, and even more so when children help children.
“We really can’t thank everyone from So Cheshire and Amber Vehicles enough, and of course the many groups who collected the eggs.
“Their generosity will mean so much to children who are living difficult lives, a little bit of egg-stra special Easter magic!”
Jason Fennessey from Amber Vehicle Solutions added: “We’re very proud to have been involved with the So Cheshire Easter Egg Appeal this year which most definitely put smiles on a lot of young faces who wouldn’t have received an Easter Egg this year.
“The Trust carries out amazing work for severe physical and learning disabilities through to children with terminal illnesses and if what we achieved between us bought smiles to those little faces then that makes us very happy indeed!
“A big thank you to the generosity of the Waitrose customers of Cheshire!”
