Annual Celebration Dinner 2021

4th November 2021 @ 5:45 pm - 11:00 pm

Please join us for our Annual Celebration Dinner on Thursday 4th November at the Castle Green Hotel in Kendal to celebrate being “Stronger Together”.

The last 18 months have seen unprecedented times, with many people across Cumbria facing hardship and continuing to struggle as we begin to recover from the pandemic.

The pandemic has encouraged a new spirit of partnership and philanthropy across the county for the good of the wider community. Cumbria Community Foundation was at the heart of the response, working alongside others, to distribute £3 million in grants raised specifically to address needs exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is also the year when the Foundation reached the significant milestone of distributing more than £50 million in grants since it was founded in 1999. But the focus of our celebrations over the course of the evening will be our partnerships. We are delighted to announce that two of our partners and fundholders, Jim Bowers and Family and Womble Bond Dickinson have generously sponsored our annual dinner event this year.

It is those partnerships with our fundholders, our corporate and individual members, our friends in local and national government, other regional and national funders, as well as third sector partners and other organisations working for what’s best for Cumbria, that help us to address the challenges and inequalities that many people are faced with in our county.

We will hear from Des Moore, CEO of The Cumberland Building Society, who will be interviewed about his perspectives on business in Cumbria, the challenges facing the Society and its commitment to communities, as well as some of the groups that we have supported over the past year.

The event starts at 5.45pm with a drinks reception in the Foyer before the main event in the Kendal Suite Function room. The evening is scheduled to finish at 11pm.
