Purple bales helping to raise money for children's charity

Critters built from purple bale wrap will be popping up across the countryside soon as part of a fundraising competition organised by Carrs Billington Agriculture.

 

The money raised will be sent to the charity WellChild, a foundation that has invested over £20 million into children’s health, aiding the support of seriously ill children and their families.

 

The creations will be constructed out of silage bales wrapped in WellChild purple, that can be decorated by the farmers with their own materials, or sticker packs that Carrs Billington can provide.

 

Through the purple bales campaigns Carrs Billington has donated upwards of £25,000 to WellChild over the last two years. The company plans on donating £10,000 to WellChild this year as a continuing sign of their support.

 

Farmers are encouraged to choose the purple wrap to show their support to WellChild, and is also being sold across the world, in countries such as Ireland, Portugal and Australia.

The farmers who wish to enter the competition must send in photos of their completed creations where they will be judged and posted on the WellChild and Carrs Billington Facebook pages.

 

The winning creator will be given two tickets to the WellChild awards 2018 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London, where they will be amongst celebrity attendees, most probably including the WellChild Patron Prince Harry.

 

Awards will be presented to child health professionals, caring children and the inspirational children who are fighting, or have fought, illnesses.

 

The Chief Executive of WellChild, Colin Dyer said: “This is the third year that we have been lucky enough to have the kind support of Carrs Billington and Zeus Packaging.

 

"The bale critters in WellChild purple will be a surprising and amusing sight in fields all over the UK and the money raised will help greatly with our work to support seriously ill children and their families.”

  • The purple silage wrap, provided by the Zeus Packaging company, can be purchased from Carrs Billington voluntarily.
