A fostering charity is celebrating its 70th anniversary of helping to provide vulnerable children with permanent loving families.

The Children’s Family Trust, which was established in 1945 and has an office at Nostell Priory, helps place some of the 65,000 children in public care in the UK in a stable and secure home with foster carers.

As part of its birthday celebrations the branch held a Macmillan coffee morning to raise awareness of its work while raising more than £200 to help cancer patients and their families.

It is also sponsoring a Nostell Miners Welfare football player.
