Customers and staff at Derbyshire farm shop Croots have brought some festive cheer to the farm shop’s adopted charity.
A series of fundraising efforts including a Christmas hamper draw, the sales of magic reindeer food and a competition to find the best dressed Christmas tree resulted in £323 being collected for Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre over the festive period.
The charity, which has been the farm shop’s adopted charity for a number of years, provides disadvantaged Derbyshire children with holidays in Skegness. In 2016, it celebrates its 125th birthday.
Steve Croot, who runs Croots Farm Shop based at Farnah House Farm, Wirksworth Road, near Duffield, with wife Kay, said: “We’re delighted to have raised a lovely sum for Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre so that we can present the charity with a great Christmas gift.
“I’d like to thank our customers and staff for once again taking part in our fundraising efforts which allow us to raise money for such a good cause.”
