Jason Manford's Social Media Fast is underway!

Jason Manford

I'd be surprised if there was anyone who didn't know what our Patron Jason Manford has been doing to raise money for CAFT recently, but for those of you who don't - Jason has pledged to abstain from looking at or posting on any Social Media site from 3rd August til 7th September. A pretty tall order for a self-confessed Social Media addict.

Jason set up his Just Giving page less than a week ago and is already up to £13,415. Actually, the amount raised is £16,202 if you include Gift Aid - absolutely amazing!

Did you know that a fantastic 2,293 people have donated to date? I'm absolutely blown away by that, it not only shows how generous you all are, but also how supportive you are of our lovely Patron. But then, what's not to love? In the 6 years I've known Jason I've come to learn that he has a big heart. He will always do everything he can to help us here at the Adventure Farm. Some things are very public, such as this, others are private and you'll see no reports in the papers. He does things just because he cares, he doesn't need the publicity, but recognises that we do!

I want to urge you all to continue to support him in his endeavours. If you're anything like me you'll understand how difficult this challenge will be for Jason. If you haven't already donated, please do so. Either by texting 70070 with the message JJMF81 followed immediately (no space) by the amount you'd like to pledge (eg JJMF81£10), or you can visit his Just Giving pagewww.justgiving.com/JManford

I'll be posting updates on this challenge at intervals between now and 7th September, but in the meantime, if you have any questions at all about what we do here at the Children's Adventure Farm Trust please either email me helen@caft.co.uk or give us a call on 01565 830 053.

Thanks again for your support, it really is very much appreciated.
