Fundraise for us

A registered charity for over 40 years, The Lake District Calvert Trust is made up of three centres: Calvert Lakes, Calvert Reconnections and Calvert Stables. Every year we welcome thousands of families, individuals, schools, charities and clubs to take part in accessible outdoor adventure.

None of this would be possible without the tireless efforts of you and your incredible fundraising feats – helping us to raise over £900,000 essential pounds that help us help more people access our services.

So whether you have a clear idea of how you want to fundraise or you want to join one of our events, read on for inspiration.

And thank you – we’re so grateful for your support.
