Cricklewood Farm's Community Spirit - Fundraising and Donations
Our charity this year is the Presqu'ile Point Lighthouse Preservation Society. They are hoping to restore the lighthouse which I thought would make a great maze.
This non-profit organization was created in 2012 to repair and refurbish the lighthouse and to promote it as a heritage icon for our community to the thousands of our visitors.
The objective of the Society is to evaluate the condition of the lighthouse, determine the steps required to arrest deterioration of the building both internally and externally, and restore it to the beautiful, commanding presence it once enjoyed.
Habitat for Humanity 2013
We were excited to be partnering with Habitat for Humanity Northumberland to help raise money for a new build in Colborne Ontario. This worthwhile organization's vision is a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live. They help financially vulnerable individuals and families build and buy quality affordable homes. We are proud to announce that we raised over $1600.00 for Habitat for Humanity in 2013.
Canadian Wildlife Federation 2012.
Thanks to our customers who went through the corn maze and some additional donors, we raised over $1500 for the Canadian Wildlife Federation's Endangered Species Fund. Information within the corn maze raised awareness about different species in trouble, including the American Badger, and about the CWF itself. Thank you all!!
Lion's Dog Guides
In 2011 we partnered with the Lion's Foundation of Canada for Dog Guides. Thanks to all participants we raised $1565.44 to help with dog guide expenses.
In 2010 we partnered with World Vision to try and raise enough money to stock a stable for a deserving community or family. Thanks to all our maze goers and additional customer donations we were able to raise over $1300.00! Not only did we stock a stable but we also contributed three little piglets. Fantastic!! Thank you once again for your support!
Northumberland United Way
In 2007 we donated a percentage of our maze sales over one weekend to the United Way and over $400.00 was raised. In 2008 that amount increased to $675.00 and in 2009 we raised $700.00. Thank you for supporting our community!
Brighton Fire Department
Our fire department is a volunteer department and provides a valuable service to our community. With the objective of raising money for fire fighting equipment, we donated a percentage of our maze sales over the weekend for the beginning of fire prevention week in 2008. This resulted in $500.00 being collected. As well money was raised by the fire department itself by selling barbecued hot dogs and hamburgers. In 2009 we made $350.00. In 2010 the fire department was invited again to our farm and was successful in raising money through their barbecued cuisine. These results could not have happened without our customer's support. Thank you everyone!
