Thank you to everyone who made Kendal Torchlight a reality in 2016. With the hundreds of voluntary hours our community gives it simply wouldn't happen. Throughout the 2016 Torchlight Carnival and Kendal Street Party we engaged in the first ever survey to attain exactly how the events affected our local economy.
Now we have the results, we can officially show how the total economic impact of Kendal Torchlight 2016 is estimated at: £1,535,678. The full results can be found on our website: http://www.kendaltorchlightcarnival.co.uk/news/2016/11/kendal-torchlight-thank-you-celebration.aspx
To mark to launch of the survey results and officially handover the charity collection to our charity partners we are hosting a special thank you celebration next Monday at The Castle Green Hotel - starting 7pm. It will also include a big thank you to everyone who made Torchlight both for 2016 and the last 46 years!
If you'll like to join us please feel free to come down and help us celebrate what is a fantastic occasion for our town.
