Run an Event

The last big CADAS fundraising event before lockdown was our annual Great Kendal Bake-Off at the end of January!
Everyone loves a bake-off and there’s extra to be made from selling fabulous cakes like this one off afterwards.

In June 2019, our Barrow office took part in the annual Stephen Terpilowski 5-a-side Tournament at the Kirkby Gala Day.
The tournament raises money for a number of charities who support people affected by addiction in Cumbria.

Please get in touch if you’d like to run an event for us in 2021 – we’ve got lots of time to prepare!

And you don’t have to wait until it’s safe to get people together again.
Everything’s gone virtual/online over the last 3 months so any night can become a charity night – your friends & family quiz, book club, yoga class… whatever you’re doing we can help you collect donations for CADAS and it’s a great way to tell people all about us.

Emily's Story
“When I first came to CADAS I was really down about the problems I was facing, but talking about them has put them in to context and made me realise that I am not the bad person I feel I am"
