Event Details

For the first time ever, the Lake District Calvert Trust is taking part in ‘The Big Give’ – a nationwide fundraising week extraordinaire running from Tue 28 November – Tue 5 December where every penny raised is match funded meaning that when individuals and businesses give once, their donation has twice the impact.

All monies raised during this crucial fundraising week will go towards funding our highly-skilled outdoor instructors who are at the heart of delivering the charity’s objective: providing outdoor adventure breaks to people living with even the most profound disabilities.

‘The Big Give’ doubles the public’s donations made in the week of Tue 28 November to Tue 5 December by matching them with Big Give ‘Champions’, which are philanthropists, foundations and companies. 

Not ones to rest on their laurels, Calvert staff have thrown themselves into the challenge ahead by launching a 24-hour swimathon in the centre’s hydrotherapy pool.From Wed 29 – Thu 30 November 2023, 40 Calvert staff members, all in fancy dress, will continuously swim in pairs for one hour to help maximise fundraising during ‘The Big Give’.

If you feel able to, please give what you can during The Big Give week (Tue 28 November, 12pm – Tue 5 December, 12pm) and your donation will be doubled meaning you’ve had twice the impact! Click the ‘donate’ button below to make a donation. NB The ‘Donate’ button will only be active between Tue 28 November, 12pm – Tue 5 December, 12pm!
