In May 2015, staff from different business areas of the Cumberland worked together to raise as much money as possible for a young boy named Kevin.
6 year old Kevin, from Penrith, has Down’s Syndrome and severe mobility issues. CFM Cash for Kids challenged the Society to raise £2,300 in a week to buy a specialist trike to help improve his mobility.
The fundraising activities were organised as part of CFM Cash for Kids appeal, which this year focused on championing smaller causes across the county.
Over the week, staff at the Cumberland took part in a number of different fundraising activities, culminating with CFM Cash For Kids’ superhero day.
As well as a series of raffles and sweepstakes, the event saw staff undertake a ‘create your own superhero’ challenge, a superhero cryptic clue trail, superhero fancy dress and a baking extravaganza!
As a whole, the Cumberland’s staff managed to beat £2,300 target, raising a staggering £3,550.
