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

Easter Treat for Family Visitors

Square Halo


Our family visitors enjoyed a rather delicious Easter Surprise last weekend.  As well as enjoying a host of activities including an Easter Egg Trail they got to tuck into an Easter Egg each thanks to Square Halo who kindly gave the Easter Bunny a helping hand this year. 

Square Halo are a web design company from Essex who were keen for our visting families to have an Easter treat during their stay at the centre and the chocolate surprise was very much appreciated.  Emma Cribbins who stayed with her familiy said "Thank you my little girl loved hers  - we bought ours home to eat when she's not around!"

We would like to say a big thank you to Square Halo on behalf of all our guests, it was a real highlight of the weekend for them and they thoroughly enjoyed searching for the eggs during the Easter Egg Hunt.
