The Lake District Calvert Trust has launched an urgent fundraising appeal having been driven to the brink of closure by the Covid-19 outbreak. The Calvert Lakes Emergency Bounce Back Appeal aims to to save this much-loved charity after a drop in income of nearly £1M caused by the pandemic. Based on current projections, the Trust’s funds will run out by March 2021 and its survival now hangs in the balance. To survive the winter and bounce back in Spring 2021, we are now appealing for your help.

Calvert Lakes is Now Closed Until the New Year 2021

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our centres are now closed to both residents and pool users. The office is open with limited cover from Monday to Friday and able to answer any queries or take donations. Behind the scenes we are working hard to ensure that we can reopen safely as soon as we are able and all support in these difficult times is gratefully appreciated.
