A big THANK YOU to our generous Sponsors

A great big Cumbrian thank you and an Invitation

Keswick Rotary’s Golf Competition on September 21 2016 received the highest ever level of sponsorship, thanks to the generosity of local businesses and individuals.   Sponsors responded quickly and positively to our request for lead and main sponsors, for hole sponsors and raffle prizes.  Rotary Golf event organiser Christine Sheldon commented   “We were thrilled by the amazing response and are very grateful to local businesses for their support.   Of course, we are raising funds for Lake District Calvert Trust which has a special place in Cumbrian hearts” Now it is time to think again about supporting the Calvert Trust in 2017.  We will be contacting our generous sponsors soon to start the process of trying to beat last years total

 This years Competition will be on the 23rd June 2017

All of the funds raised at the Golf Competition and raffle will go to Lake District Calvert Trust which “challenges disability through outdoor adventure”.  Calvert Trust provides life-changing experiences and a full range of activities for groups and individuals with disabilities.   Lynn Healey, Calvert Trust Business Development Manager, said “We were overwhelmed last year when Keswick Rotary was able to raise over £7300 through the Golf Competition and iwe are hoping to beat that this year.   On behalf of Calvert Trust, thank you to all the sponsors for supporting this fantastic event. The success of fundraising events like this relies entirely on sponsorship and commitment from local businesses and generous individuals”. She added “I think this feedback from one of our riding volunteers really demonstrates the life-changing impact of Calvert Trust on disabled people.  “One of my most vivid images is of a young girl sitting in a wheel chair. Her disabilities were complex and sitting there, she seemed unreachable, isolated in a bubble of her own. Her carers persisted in lifting up her hand (which she couldn’t do on her own) to stroke a small horse. I thought this wasn’t going to get any response but she suddenly started to smile.  By the time she was on the trap, she was laughing - her carers said they had never seen her laugh before. This is what being a volunteer at Calvert Trust is all about – you can make a difference. It was a huge lesson to me to never ever dismiss anyone just because they are different”.    Please join us at the Golf Competition – we need teams to enter, to help Calvert Trust continue its work making a difference to the lives of disabled people”.
