A good time was had by all at Kendal Torchlight last Friday. The theme was ‘visions of Kendal’s future’ so we showed Kendal our vision via a cardboard tent to represent homelessness, words like ‘compassion’, and campaign headlines such as ‘cheaper rents’, ‘yes to DSS’ and ‘more support for addiction’. During the evening’s celebration we also raised money by selling burgers and chilli along with woolly hats!
