Giving it Beans

A place for all of us at CAF (children and adults) to show off all the amazing things we’ve done!

Together we have experienced so much and we wanted a space to show it all off!

That’s why we created Giving it Beans – a space to show off all of the awesome stuff we
have done – if you send it to us, we’ll feature it here.

It’s time to show the world just how awesome we are!

Big day out!

We are excited to share a photo of some of our team celebrating 10 wonderful years on our Big Summer Day Out!

It was a day filled with joy, laughter, and memorable moments. Here’s to many more years of amazing adventures together!

A visit to Villa park!

We are incredibly proud to share that one of our young people had the opportunity to visit Aston Villa Football Club.

During the visit, they experienced a dream come true by lifting the championship trophy, just like their idol Jack Grealish.

Getting stuck in…

We are thrilled to highlight the fantastic achievement of one of our young people, who recently spent a day gaining hands-on experience with a local bricklaying company.

By the end of the day, they were expertly laying bricks perfectly in line with the dryline. Fantastic work and a great example of the skills and dedication our youth demonstrate!

Gary Solomon, a CAF Foster Carer, runs for a great cause!

In January 2024 I decided to challenge myself and began running. As someone who has never been into running, I could only run up to 1km at the start, so it hasn’t been easy. Since then, I have caught the bug and having recently completed 10k in the Birmingham Run, I have now I have signed up for the Birmingham Black Country Half Marathon. With it being such a challenge for me I thought it would be a great opportunity to raise money for two charities close to my heart.

The first charity is particularly close to my heart; the Kleefstra Syndrome Charity. My daughter Faith has Kleefsra syndrome which has affected her daily life since birth. So I chose the charity has been a great support to us as too so many other families that live in the UK.

The second charity I am running for is the Pulmonary Fibrosis Charity. Jason Stafford, who was not only one of my closest friends but my family, unfortunately passed away after a short diagnosis of Pulmonary Fibrosisthe. The charity do great work in research around the disease and supporting families that are affected by it. Any donations would be greatly appreciated!
