Wainwright Society Fundraising | 2016

Our main beneficiary in 2016 was The Lake District Calvert Trust. We first raised money for this fabulous organisation in 2011. In 2016 our main funds will be used to help convert the Bowderstone Bothy, where Calvert have taken a mid-term lease. This will allow their clients to experience outdoor overnight experiences in disabled-friendly accommodation and link in with Calvert’s abseiling facility nearby.

Donations were also been made to Keswick Museum to support the Wainwright Exhibition in its second year, and to an appeal to repair a section of the Coast to Coast path at Nine Standards.

The Bowderstone Bothy is owned by The National Trust and has now been leased by the Lake District Calvert Trust. The Bowderstone Bothy is owned by The National Trust and has now been leased by the Lake District Calvert Trust.
