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.

Rotary District 1070 help the Lake District keep dry!

Rotary District 1070 christened our new Abseiling Shelter at the Lake District Calvert Trust yesterday during their annual visit to the centre.  The new shelter is at the top of our 'ab slab' is an incline suitable for wheelchair users and those learning to abseil.  Its a very popular activity at the centre but when the weather isn't so kind those waiting their turn can get a little wet if the Cumbrian weather does its worst!

Rotary District 1070  very kindly donated the funds for the shelter to be built and it proved very useful during their visit, as guess what the heavens opened just as their activity started!  We would like to say a big thank you to them for their support and we are sure many future vistors will be pleased to take advantage of the shelter during their activity session.

Lynn Healey, Business Manager at the Lake District Calvert Trust said "We are very grateful to Rotary District 1070 for their support, they visit us every year from Northamptonshire and its fantastic that they help us with projects like this."
