Our story started back in 1985, when CAFT founder Tim Grundy was inspired to create a special place where terminally ill, disabled and socially disadvantaged children could have a break away from their circumstances. Tim was inspired whilst donating toys to a local centre supporting young children, he asked ?Is there anything else these children need?? The response: ?What these children need is a holiday, but they?ll never get the opportunity.?
In 1989 after four years of fundraising, Booth Bank Farm, a 17th century farmhouse set in the heart of the Cheshire countryside was purchased at auction. in 1992, after a further three years of hard work renovating, The Children?s Adventure Farm Trust was ready to receive the first children for a holiday at the Farm.
