During the evening James Rebanks, the popular ‘Herdy Shepherd’ and local author, will be introducing an exciting new project to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Lake District Calvert Trust; the first sculpture of the ‘Go Herdwick’ Public Art Trail will be on display at the Ball. The Trail is expected to attract thousands of visitors and will run from Easter through to autumn 2016.


All proceeds of the Calvert Trust Ball go towards our ‘Bridging the Gap Fund’ which enables visitors to come to the Trust without finances being a hindering factor. By supporting the 2015 Charity Ball you can help to ensure that people with disabilities, who otherwise would not be able to afford to, can experience one of the Calvert Trusts truly life-changing courses which can provide positive results lasting long after their stay.


The Lake District Calvert Trust would like to thank the following Sponsors for their generous support with this event: Brewin Dolphin, Barclays Bank, Grapevine Wines, Low Wood Bay Hotel, Mason Gillibrand, Print Graphic and The Scott Partnership.
