Originally known as National Childrens Home (NCH), the organisation was founded by Rev Thomas Bowman Stephenson – a Methodist Minister. It is deeply rooted in Methodist principles and it supports and speaks out for the UK’s most vulnerable, disadvantaged and neglected children and young people – for as long as it takes.
The main annual event is the Christmas Fayre held in November. In addition there are:
- Stalls selling cakes, gifts, toiletries, books, toys, jams, etc
- Games for children to play
- Baildon calendar on sale
- Refreshments and hot lunches
None of this would happen without our army of volunteers and supporters for whom we are ever grateful
Last year we raised £4,105.16 for Action for Children – will you help us to achieve a higher target at the forthcoming events?
A main attraction is the fabulous Christmas Grotto which takes centre stage at the Christmas Fayre. The grotto has been ‘done’ for decades.
