AN EVENT in Coniston is aiming to put the ‘fun’ in fundraising for families looking for ways to fill the half-term holidays.

Bank Ground Farm will be hosting the Coniston Regatta on the shores of the water, between May 27 and 29.

There will be live music, food, cruises and activities for all the family - including a swimming challenge, treasure hunt, alpaca petting and crafts.

The event is being held to raise money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

Spokeswoman for the Regatta, Shayla Garrido, described it as a 'fun-draising' event.

“It’s been a great event to organise, with profits going to Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research," she said.

“We hope our efforts make a difference and everyone has a super time filled with adventures and fun memories!”
