This year, Rosedale Leasing are embarking on what could be described as being a “crazy” journey to raise money for the Calvert Trust.
What is the Calvert Trust?
The Calvert Trust is the inspiration of John Fryer-Spedding, whose vision was to enable people with disabilities to benefit from outdoor activities in the countryside. With a lack of accessible facilities that restricted people with disabilities from enjoying our beautiful countryside and benefiting from outdoor activity, John enlisted the help of Elinor, Viscountess Rochdale and it wasn’t long until a Trust had been made.
The Kielder centre was opened in 1984, with its magnificent man-made reservoir, welcoming over 5,000 visitors every year.
As well as the centre and all its activities, the site offers 10 amazing, fully accessible self-catering log chalets, the 5* Straker Chalet and the special Sky Den, created by George Clark’s Amazing Spaces Channel 4 TV programme. The Bradbury, a luxury chalet sleeping 4 people, opened summer 2015 and the latest addition, The McArdle, opened early 2016.
Calvert Trust Kielder welcomes families, groups and individuals on a residential and day visit basis and uniquely offers 24-hour respite care for adults travelling alone.
The Calvert Trust is indebted to grant-making trusts, companies and individuals who have shown it great generosity.
Rosedale Leasing Fund Raising 2017 for The Calvert Trust Kielder
Rosedale Leasing has a 2017 fundraising target of £5,000, with the aim being to fund a stay at the Kielder centre for Rachael Rodger’s Mum (Rachael is a Fleet Administrator at Lookers Corporate) and a special young lady, Kate Stanforth.
“The Calvert Trust is a charity that is very close to my heart. My Mum is Quadriplegic after suffering an asthma attack, which means that she requires round-the-clock care which my Dad provides.
“Kate has a number of conditions and her parents care for her – she does so much to give back too! As well as funding a well-deserved stay, we will also be helping the The Calvert Trust Kielder out with new equipment with the extra funds we intend to raise.”
