Cheshire Firms Join Forces for Charity

Cheshire-based companies MBNA and Bolesworth have united for a new campaign called Making a Child’s Christmas, which will now provide underserved children of Chester and its surrounding areas with a pre-Christmas experience to remember.

Through the collaboration, children and their siblings, parents and carers from charities Zoë’s Place and Hope House have been invited to the Bolesworth Castle’s upcoming Christmas Lights Trail tomorrow, December 4.

Zoë’s Place delivers a short break service, end-of-life and palliative care to babies and infants aged between birth and five years who live with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions. Hope House Children’s Hospices is committed to providing community and hospice care for life-limited children as well as their families in Cheshire, Shropshire, North Wales and Mid Wales.

Managing Director for Bolesworth Estate Co., Nina Barbour, commented:

“We are delighted to be in a position to facilitate this MBNA initiative which will hopefully provide a happy and fun experience for so many children and their families. Both charities work tirelessly to provide the best end-of-life care possible.”

Cheshire’s Bolesworth Castle will now open its doors to both the kids and their families and carers at 3:00 pm tomorrow, offering exclusive admission to the illuminated trail before the attraction is open for the public, ensuring plenty of space and accessibility.

The children will be greeted at Bolesworth with cookies and drinks within the Alpine Lodge and can enjoy the chance to visit Santa Claus. Afterwards, they will be taken on a guided tour of the Christmas Lights Trail, and have the opportunity to visit the Christmas Market and fairground rides.
