Kick Off 4 has been a shining light in raising funds and awareness for local charities, making a real difference to local people's lives for the last couple of years.
Kick Off 4 Cancer was followed a year later by Kick Off 4 Dementia, which raised more than £6,000 for The Alzheimer's Society by holding a series of fundraising events right here in Barrow.
This year Kick Off 4 is focusing it's energy and efforts in raising money and awareness for Mind In Furness.
2019 is going to be an incredibly busy time with a host of wonderful fundraisers already planned.
The founder of Kick Off 4 - Dan Webber and his family will be starting the fund raising in January with 'Red January' where they will be exercising everyday through the month to boost mental health in a Mind backed scheme.
February sees both the Great Furness Bake Off competition and Kick It events take place.
April sees the fantastic 'Sing Out for Charity' take place. Eight local acts will go head to head to be crowned the best.
Kick Off 4 Mental Health 16 team knockout football tournament takes place in May and is the charities flag ship event. It's a fantastic event featuring ex professional footballers, tv stars and of course teams made up with local people.
Mental Health problems are something that at some point in our lives we will allexperience, either first hand or through family and friends, so it's so important that as many people as possible get involved in spreading awareness and raising funds to help Mind In Furness continue to do the amazing work they do in the local community.
As well as bringing these amazing events to the public Dan will be hosting mental health workshops to both schools and businesses to help them work on improving mental health and emotional resilience.
Move 4 Music is a very good event for the local community. I like the fact that Dan always supports locals in his events.
Move 4 Music is a great event with some wonderful stalls and entertainment.
Great to see Kick Off supporting Mental Health this year - already added events to my diary!
Kick off is an amazing way of raising money for well deserving charities, Dan and his team work so hard and are always looking for ways to bring our small town together. Looking forward to seeing what...
Very good events that put the community at the heart. Looking forward to seeing what they have in store for Mental Health in 2019. Well done Dan & Neil.
