The Ice Cream Farm Gives Homeless Children A Christmas Eve To Remember
Over 130 homeless children from Chester, Wrexham and North Wales will be visiting The Ice Cream Farm, based outside Chester, for a Christmas Eve to remember this year.
Along with Dandy’s Topsoil and Turf, based on Sealand Road in Chester, and the ShareShop, The Ice Cream Farm team will be hosting a magical Christmas Eve event. Each of the 134 children, who are currently being cared for by the Save The Family and Plas Bellin charities, will receive a present and ‘santa sack’ from Father Christmas himself, as well as lunch, provided by the team at The Pantry and access to the whole Ice Cream Farm site for the afternoon.
Donations for the ‘santa sacks’ have been flooding in with many people eager to help local families in need at this extremely special time of year, including Tarporley High School students, who have also been collecting gifts.
Jonathan Fell, Director of The Ice Cream Farm comments: “Creating a magical experience for children and their families is at the core of everything we do at The Ice Cream Farm. Christmas is a time when small gestures can make a huge difference, so welcoming these children to The Ice Cream Farm is the very least that we can do. Working with Dandy’s Top Soil and ShareShop to be able to offer them gifts as well, will hopefully make this Christmas Eve one to remember.”
Amongst other awards in 2016, The Ice Cream Farm was recently recognised as Large Visitor Attraction of the Year at Marketing Cheshire’s annual Awards. This year, the site has also been awarded the title of World’s Largest Ice Cream Shop by the Guinness World Records.
