Torchlight Fundraising Events: Promoting Local Businesses

Torchlight's Fundraising Coordinators can help your business to organise a fundraising or promotional activity under the Torchlight banner. We promote your event and your business through our Torchlight web site and social media pages encouraging potential customers to visit, join in, find out about your products and services, have fun and at the same time help boost Torchlight coffers.

To talk with us about becoming a Fundraising Partner Contact Us or email fundraising@kendal-torchlight-carnival.co.uk

Sponsorship Partners: Access to the Kendal Marketplace

Torchlight offers three levels of sponsorship package to help businesses present their brand, products and services to Kendal and surrounding districts, and to help local businesses strengthen their brand worth. These packages offer much longer-term effect than our Fundraising Partnerships and include involvement in the Kendal Torchlight Carnival in September.

  • Torchlight Marshalls

    Torchlight Marshals are part of the essential 160-strong team of volunteers without whom Torchlight can't happen. Each year we lose a few (we know, it's a little careless!) ... and we gain a few. We train and develop our Torchlight Marshals to professional standards, and they support a 45-yearold Kendalian tradition that enhances our community and our town. Contact Craig Baldwin to become a Torchlight Marshal.

  • Torchlight Management Team

    The Torchlight Management Team are the unpaid volunteers who work throughout the year to promote Kendal and to make Kendal Torchlight Carnival happen. We're  always seeking capable and committed people to join our Team. Contact Craig Russell if you want to develop your skills and talents, be able to say that you promote Kendal and take a pride in knowing that our Torchlight Carnival happens because you make it happen.
