Working with Businesses to Change Lives

Over the last 5 years the level of support and generosity afforded to us by local business has been momentous. We work hard to ensure that a partnership with the Lake District Calvert Trust is just that, a partnership.

Working together with the Calvert Trust can be a great way for you to meet your business’s corporate social responsibility aims, and in return we can offer you:

  • Increased publicity for your business
  • Use of our meeting rooms
  • Boosting staff morale and improving relationships across your business through volunteering days
  • Opportunity to access event places such as Great North Run and London Marathon

How Your Company can Help

There are many ways in which your business and employees can support us, no matter what the size of your team.

Charity of Choice

Adopt Calvert Trust as your charity partner. We have a dedicated team who can help you with fundraising ideas and support you throughout our partnership.

Corporate Sponsorship

Corporate sponsorship is a great way to promote your products and services whilst supporting Calvert Trust. There are plenty of opportunities from overall sponsorship of one of our events, to sponsoring one of our ponies or a piece of activity equipment at our Centre.

We rely heavily on voluntary donations and support to provide our service, so you can rest assured that every penny you donate will be put to good use.

Employee Fundraising

Employees love to get involved in fundraising, it helps to promote team building and can be a lot of fun both in and out of the office. Whatever your employees choose to do to support the trust we will be here to lend a hand.

Pro Bono Professional Services and Support in Kind

Many companies donate their products or services to support the trust, which enables us to cut costs and has proved to be of tremendous value. In addition raffle and auction prizes for fundraising events are always gratefully received.


A great way to make a significant contribution is to pull together a team of employees and work on a group project. You could work on garden landscaping or redecorate bedrooms at our centre, or simply organise a fundraising event or challenge. This can provide a fantastic team building opportunity.
