Another bumper fundraiser for CAFT!
CHILDREN'S charity, The Children's Adventure Farm Trust, was joined by 350 guests and their Patrons at their Mamma Mia themed Ladies Lunch event at The Mere Golf Resort & Spa.

A staggering 46,000 was raised at this year's event, which will help the charity to provide holidays for terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children from all over our region.

Guests were greeted by staff and volunteers from the charity and a glass of fizz before being given time to indulge in a spot of shopping at the many stalls offering everything from jewellery to handbags, natural skincare products to scented candles and everything in between!

Guests were transported to a Greek Taverna with the beautifully themed decor, including olive trees, pink blossom and rustic urns.

Each guest was treated to a fantastic Goodie Bag worth 70, thanks to donations from Next, L'Oreal and Transformulas, and discounts for Zero Gravity Float Spa and Transformulas.

Host Paul Sleem kept the ladies entertained throughout a lively day of fun, including fun games of Hit or Miss and Pass the Mic, prizes for which were donated by Pulse of Perfumery of Knutsford and Cottons Hotel & Spa.

There were many surprises in store throughout the day, but none more hilarious than the CAFT Boys who dazzled guests with their costumes, wigs and dance routine to the Abba favourite 'Does your Mother Know?' The troop consisted of the charity's new Head of Operations Ian Eccles with Trustees Nick Montague and Mike Bulcock, and staff members Tom Lockett and staff members Tom Lockett and Rob Bashforth.

Event organiser Pippa Watton said: "Just when we think our Ladies Lunch can't get any bigger, or better, we're proved wrong! This year's event was amazing, the theme brought a little sunshine to our otherwise disappointing summer."
