This year our Gala Dinner, which will be sponsored by Welbeing, will take place on Friday 24 November at the Castle Green Hotel in Kendal. There’ll be a delicious three course meal – leek and potato soup, roast turkey and profiteroles with chocolate sauce – and music from The Seals (back by popular demand). There’ll also be a raffle and auction with fantastic prizes donated by local businesses.
The combination of our 25th anniversary and the Christmas atmosphere should make this an extra special evening and we hope you’ll be able to join us. Tickets cost £40 per head (or £350 for a table of 10) and you can buy them here or by contacting Emma Bennie on 01539 815970 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The dress code is formal – please dress to impress.
If you’re a business who would like to donate a prize, we’d love to hear from you.
Our 2016 dinner, sponsored by South Lakes Housing, raised more than £4,500 for our work with Carers. Following a four course dinner, Kev Kendal from 1818 Auctioneers held a fundraising auction where prizes included a weekend for two in a camper van donated by E S Hartley, a champagne afternoon tea at the Midland Hotel in Morecambe and a home visit by Santa Claus.
Welbeing, our event sponsor, is one of the leading telecare companies in the UK. They offer high quality, fully integrated managed services and work closely with customers to develop innovative, cost effective solutions. They work with Cumbria County Council to offer a telecare service to support people to live independently in their own home. Telecare is based around a pendant worn around the neck or wrist. This provides access to a 24-hour monitoring service offering an instant response at the touch of a button from anywhere in your home or garden.
We are also very grateful to the Cumberland Building Society for sponsoring the training sessions for our Young Carers entertainment at the dinner.
