Colour Run event in Kendal

KDCS have been asked to help promote this fundraising event for Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice and Eden Valley Hospice and have been sent this information .....

On Sunday 24 May, Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice and Eden Valley

I understand that this is a very big ask and I appreciate that you may
not be able to help us on this occasion.

Kind regards
