DISASTER struck a charity carol concert in Hale this week as heavy rains and an unexpected traffic accident meant that the event did not go to plan.

The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) suffered through torrential rain and gale force winds during the open-air event, which featured performances from Bowdon Prep School Choir and Blackley Brass Band.

A minor traffic accident suffered by the equipment supplier also meant that the musicians and singers were forced to perform without microphones, speakers or staging for the event.

Despite this series of setbacks, the organisers bravely ploughed on and the event still raised more than £2,000 for the charity.

Julie Gray, a CAFT Community Fundraiser, thanked all the attendees who came down to see the performances.

“Even the rain and wind couldn’t dampen the festive spirits of those attending the event! We’re so grateful to everyone who pulled together to help make the event happen in very trying circumstances.”

Earlier this month CAFT, which provides leisure activities for ill or vulnerable children, raised more than £100,000 at its annual Christmas ball.
