Over the last couple of years, we have introduced a charity of the year to support. First put to practise in 2016 by supporting Amy’s Care, where we raised just over £8,000, this then continued into 2017 where an outstanding £11,426 was handed over to Blood Bikes Cumbria.
With close connections to Keswick School, our 2018 and 2019 fundraising activities will go towards implementing a plan to help improve the food technology kitchen within the school, making it more effective and more engaging for the children, with the aim to encourage more students to take up careers within the hospitality industry. To help turn this goal into a reality, we have teamed up with Howdens Joinery of Keswick.
In addition to our fundraising a total of £5,700 has been kindly donated from Thomas Armstrong Group, Hyde Harrington & The Keswick Rotary
