LARS Communications support local charities

The firm will take part in the Born Survivor event later this year

Following a successful year of fundraising in 2018, LARS Communications has announced that it will once again be supporting local charities, St John’s Hospice and Unique Kidz and Co.

The Carnforth-based firm has also revealed details of some of the fundraising activities and events it will be supporting, including the Keswick to Barrow Walk (K2B) and the Born Survivor event which will take place at Capesthorne Hall on the same day, Saturday 11 May.

Julian Cooper, Business Development Manager at LARS, said: “Choosing St. John’s Hospice and Unique Kidz and Co was a unanimous decision. We are so impressed with the work these charities carry out in the local community and the tireless support they provide to so many people.”

Serving a population of over 250,000 people across North Lancashire, South Lakes and North Yorkshire, St. John’s Hospice has been part of the local community for over thirty years and provides palliative care to people with life-shortening conditions.

LARS’ other chosen charity, Unique Kidz and Co, was set up in 2009 and provides care for young people with additional needs and disabilities, advancing their social and play opportunities. The charity’s services include Summer Holiday Clubs and 4Ever Unique, a daytime support service for young adults up to the age of twenty-five.

Continued Julian: “These challenges are an opportunity for us to truly recognise the fantastic work of these charities and raise some valuable funds for such amazing causes. Some of us will be heading north to Keswick, while another team will be travelling to Capesthorne Hall in Cheshire, ready to tackle the tough 10km ‘Born Survivor’ obstacle course.”
