Kendal Rugby Club have praised local businesses after their donations have helped them go ahead with a fireworks display.

The event is set to take place at Mint Bridge on Friday, November 3 from 5pm until 11pm.

The club has thanked the 'amazing' businesses for their contributions after no income was received from local funding pots.

A spokesperson said: "We have received donations of High Vis wear for our volunteers, radio communications to help keep everyone safe on the night, donations of mulled wine for our VIP guests and a donated marquee to host our beer tent.

"To the businesses that have made financial contributions to support the cost of the fireworks - thank you, you are just the best!"

Whilst all VIP tickets have now sold out, general admission can still be bought for just £2.
