The Lake District Calvert Trust is a residential outdoor centre with 40 years’ experience delivering challenging outdoor adventure holidays for people with disabilities.

On the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake, in the heart of the Lake District National Park, our centre offers a warm welcome; accessible accommodation and exciting breaks for schools, groups, families and individuals with their friends and carers.

We are accessible to people of all ages with sensory, learning or physical disabilities, including those with the most complex needs for which most outdoor centres cannot cater.

Visitors to the Rheged Centre help raise over £1000 for Lake District Calvert Trust

The Rheged Centre at Penrith held an indoor car boot sale on Sunday 20th January and raised over £1000 for the Lake District Calvert Trust.  Visitors to the centre kindly dropped their change into the donation buckets and chatted to our volunteers whilst browsing for a bargain.  The Rheged centre hosted a table specifically in aid of the Lake District Calvert Trust which helped towards such a fantastic fundraising day.


Holly Venning, Rheged's Marketing Manager, said "Its great news! It was a delight to have the Calvert Trust and their volunteers here. In total the event raised £1119.60 which is just fantastic! Well done to all involved."


We would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Rheged for their continuing support, and hope to see them again soon for the next indoor car boot sale.
