The Wainwright Society is delighted to announce that the Lake District Calvert Trust, whose motto is Challenging Disability through Outdoor Adventure, has been chosen as the main beneficiary of funds raised by the Society in 2020.
Money will be raised from donations by Society members taking part in the annual charity ‘Challenge’, together with sale proceeds of the 2021 Society calendar. Funds so raised will be used to provide a bursary to enable those who might not otherwise be able to experience a residential break at the Trust’s Centre near Bassenthwaite to do so. These breaks enable people with physical, learning and sensory disabilities, including those with the most complex needs for which most outdoor centres cannot cater, to benefit from outdoor activities.
Jennifer Scott, Fundraising Manager of the Lake District Calvert Trust said: “As a charity we are entirely dependent on non-government funding and we rely on the generosity offered by those who believe in our cause. The Lake District Calvert Trust genuinely could not continue to offer the standard of service we currently do, or ensure we remain affordable to our visitors, without funding support.
“For that reason we are extremely grateful to the continued support from The Wainwright Society and for being chosen as the main beneficiary for its fund raising in 2020.”
