Hospice at Home West Cumbria announces Cockermouth company James Walker as ‘Headline Sponsor’ for their brand new fundraising event for 2019 – the KAPOW! Superhero Challenge.
The event which is a 5k giant inflatable obstacle course, will be held at Cockermouth Rugby Club on Saturday 6th July and is the first event of its kind in Cumbria.
Mark Brook, Manufacturing Director at James Walker said; “James Walker and all its employees are proud to support Hospice at Home West Cumbria once again. As a local charity, all money raised by them stays in this area and supports local people and the community – our employees and their families. Most of us know someone who have received support from them and we think they do a fantastic job. We are all really looking forward to the event and we hope it raises a great amount for the charity – we are sure it will be a brilliant day.”
Stella Walsh, Senior Fundraiser for Hospice at Home West Cumbria added; “We are thrilled to be working with James Walker and its employees once again and we can’t thank them enough for supporting our new fundraising event. The company were a main sponsor of our 2018 Colour Run and have been great supporters of our charity over the past few years, with staff holding various fundraising events to support us.”
Hospice at Home West Cumbria has been caring for people in our community for more than 30 years. Their care and support is available to those with a life limiting illness and is offered for free at the point of need.
They provide skilled nursing care on a one-to-one basis to people with a life limiting illness in their own home or alternative residential settings, enabling them to remain in their chosen place of care at end of life.
Hospice at Home West Cumbria also deliver a range of family and bereavement support services for families, carers and those bereaved; these include one to one support, group support and complementary therapy. This support enables people to cope during the most difficult and challenging times in their lives. They are the sole providers of specialist lymphoedema care in West Cumbria.
This is a particularly challenging condition that affects many people. It can be as a result of cancer or cancer treatment but it can also be caused by other non-cancer related conditions. By fundraising on their behalf, you are helping us to continue to support the people and families in West Cumbria who desperately need our services.
