The fundraiser takes place on Thursday, December 14, from 3pm to 7pm in aid of two charities – Hartford Young NSPCC and Chesnut Lodge Specialist School in Widnes.
The school was chosen as one of the beneficiaries having been nominated by contractor Ben Schofield, whose son attends Chesnut Lodge.
“My son AJ is 11 and has a rare congenital condition that affects his nerves and means his muscles don’t work as they should. His self-confidence has really improved since he started at Chesnut Lodge and raising money for the school will help them provide resources to support other children,” explained Ben, who’s worked on new Redrow homes in Hartford for two years.
Danny Daynes, from Hartford Young NSPCC, said: “Hartford Young NSPCC is a local branch of the NSPCC with all money raised by us spent in our area. We’re hugely grateful to Redrow for choosing to support our charity as it will mean more schools benefit from the ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ programme, which is adapted to meet every school’ needs and encourages children going through neglect to break their silence and talk about their experiences.”
The event will feature entertainment from a brass band, pop choir and children from the Grange School.
Visitors, including existing and potential customers and people from the local community, will get the chance to join in the cheer with a visit from Santa himself and enjoy scrummy seasonal goodies including hot chocolate and delicious spiced mulled wine.
There will also be raffles and a host of other activities to get everyone in the Christmas mood.
The event will be officially opened by Town Councillor Kevin Rimmer.
Jason Newton, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “At Redrow we believe it’s important that we build communities and that people feel very much part of the neighbourhoods in which they live. With that in mind we’re holding a charity Christmas event in Hartford for a third consecutive year. Each year we’ve supported a different charity or charities and as Christmas is very much a time for families and children in particular, we’ve chosen to raise funds for Hartford Young NSPCC and Chesnut Lodge this time round. We’d encourage people to come along to the event and embrace the season of goodwill in aid of two very worthy causes.”
