To keep the doors open here at the Lake District Calvert Trust it costs over £1.5m a year, that is why your help is so important!
Although around two thirds of our operating costs are covered through income from our residential fees, the remaining £500,000 must be raised every year through charitable donations. These donations also allow us to subsidise every single one of our visitors by a minimum of £30 per person per night.
The work we carry out wouldn’t be possible without continued support from people like you. We are incredibly grateful for the generosity & commitment of our supporters.
Every year we need to raise in excess of £500,000 to cover core costs; replace and renew essential specialist equipment; and provide vital bursary support for guests with disabilities who would not be able to visit us without financial assistance. As a charity we receive no government funding so every gift, no matter how large or small, is crucial to help us realise this target, and every £1 you donate will go directly towards achieving our vision, values and mission.
