January 18 2008. A further £13,000 has been donated to a children's charity by GE Capital Solutions, Fleet Services - in addition to £5,000 already given last year.
The company has a longstanding relationship with the Children's Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) at Millington, near its Sale headquarters. CAFT provides holidays and activities for terminally ill, chronically sick, disabled and disadvantaged children.

However, it is not just money that GE Fleet Services provides for CAFT - in the last few months 100 volunteers from the company have given more than 400 hours of their time to work on an amazing 60 feet long pirate play ship, which is set to be completed early this year.

Rich Green, managing director at GE Fleet Services, explained: "We requested this additional money from GE's charitable contributions budget because we believe very strongly in the work that goes on at CAFT - and we are very pleased to see our request approved.

"CAFT does superb work for children who find themselves in difficult circumstances and many of the people who work at GE Fleet Services have a deep emotional attachment to the Adventure Farm and for what it sets out to achieve"
