2022 Charity Lunch

KACCL, Kirklees and Calderdale Charity Lunch, is an annual event, held to help raise funds for local charities and organisations who specialise in helping young people. Run by volunteers, mainly local companies, the event offers an afternoon of fun, food and fundraising, with live entertainment and auction with some fantastic items available to bid on.

“We’re incredibly excited to be able to bring back KACCL after a two-year gap. Many young people and children across the region were adversely impacted by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and will be living with the legacy of it for years to come. We want to ensure that through KACCL and the charities we are working with, we can start to support some of those affected.

This year’s beneficiaries do some incredible work within our local community. We can’t wait to bring the local business community together again to raise money for the brilliant services these two organisations provide.” – Steve Crowther, Chair of the KACCL Committee.

This year’s beneficiaries are

Lawrence Batley Theatre is an arts venue in the heart of Huddersfield staging a range of drama, dance, comedy and family work. At the centre of their charitable organisation is a commitment to young people, providing weekly drama sessions.
