Festival Official Charity

CHICKS is a children’s charity that provides free respite breaks for disadvantaged children from all over the UK, at our three retreats in Devon, Cornwall and Derbyshire. For the children they support, a CHICKS break imparts new confidence, nurtures self-esteem, makes happy childhood memories and sparks new enthusiasm for life.

Andrew Dean, Director of Fundraising at CHICKS, said: “We’re really excited to be the official Charity of the Year at Powderham Food Festival! 2017 is an extra special year for CHICKS as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary – I’m proud to say that in that time we have given over 14,000 children a break. And whilst we help children from all across the UK, last year alone we supported more than 250 children from Devon, giving them a week to enjoy the amazing countryside that is right on our doorstep.

“The festival is going to be a fantastic weekend, and we can’t wait to see you all– make sure you pay a visit to our stand for family friendly activities and to find out more about the work we do.”
