We would like to thank everyone who joined us for our 12th annual fundraising weekend in Cumbria!
People came to Cumbria from all across the world to raise money for the CKDCF this weekend. It began with a welcome meal at the Seacote Hotel in St. Bees on Friday evening; we heard from guest speakers: Marie Scott, from the West Cumbria Society for the Blind, and Gill Wykes, from Cumbria Cerebral Palsy. During the evening, the CKDCF handed a £3,000 cheque to Gill Wykes from Cumbria Cerebral Palsy to fund a support worker who will work with children. We were then treated to a fantastic performance by John & Wayne. The following morning was the 10km CKDCF Sponsored Walk around Ennerdale Water which was a great success – despite the notorious Cumbrian weather! The weekend’s festivities were topped off with the CKDCF benefit concert in the evening in the Market Hall, Egremont. The concert was headlined by ‘The Sensational Francis Dunnery Band’ alongside New York duo ‘Clayton & Ellis’ and Dutch progressive rock band ‘Mangrove’!
