Fun Day Out on the Farm in aid of The Chiltern Centre

Stonor Farm (opposite Stonor Park) will hosting a charity fundraising day in aid of The Chiltern Centre with fun activities including tractor and trailer rides this Sunday 3 September from 1.00pm.

This event is part of local resident Catherine Carr’s fundraising year to raise £10,000 for the charity whose family own the farm.  Catherine was appointed Master of The Worshipful Company of Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers and she has nominated The Chiltern Centre as the Livery Company’s Charity of the Year. This is a prestigious livery company that holds a rich heritage and an important role in the City of London. The Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers Livery Company are dedicated to upholding the traditions and values that have been passed down through generations, as well as raising charitable funds each year for worthy causes.  From Skydiving to abseiling down a London skyscraper, Catherine has challenged herself to the limits in order to raise money for such a worthy cause.

Now in its 20th year, the Chiltern Centre supports young adults between 16-30 years old with complex physical and learning disabilities, by providing bespoke day and overnight care right here in the heart of Henley.

Tickets are available to buy via their website https://stonorfarmcharityday.co.uk/ , and you can expect to enjoy pick your own sunflowers, tractor and trailer rides, go carting, arts and crafts and much more!

All ticket costs and donations will go directly to The Chiltern Centre, with the farm day itself having been generously supported by the Carr family.

Ruth Siddorn, The Chiltern Centre Community Fundraiser said, “The Chiltern Centre are so grateful for all of the fundraising events that the Carr family have organised this year through the Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers Charity, as well as through their own farm in Stonor.  With over £7500 already raised, we cannot thank Catherine and her daughter Emily enough for the time and effort they have put in in order to raise such a significant amount for a local charity.”
