Support KACCL's 2020 Charities

KACCL (Kirklees and Calderdale Charity Lunch) was created in 2016, in order to help raise valuable funds for local charities. Every year since we've organised a fabulous Christmas Lunch in aid of charity.

In 2019, we raised a staggering £32,446.00 for our beneficiaries, Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and the Orangebox Choir at Square Chapel.

In 2020, we were due to do the same and raise money for The Nick Smith Foundation, Lawrence Batley Theatre, Global Diversity & Calderdale SmartMove.

Understandably, we can't hold our lunch this year but we are hoping for bigger and better in 2021 and will host our next event on Thursday 2 December 2021 at the Cedar Court Hotel in Huddersfield.

In the meantime, we're asking for your support for the four charities we had hoped to be supporting this year. They are all facing difficult times given Covid-19 and we want to help them if we can.

If you feel able to support them, please donate - it might be the amount you would have spent on a table, or the amount you would have spent on the day.

However much, or however little, we will pass every penny to the charities split equally four ways.

Thank you.
