Keswick Rotary Wishing Wells raise over £35,000
The Rotary Wishing Wells are well established places of magic in Keswick. One is close to the Theatre by the Lake and the other stands at the corner of Tithebarn Street. Both invite donors to Make a Wish - and the Tithebarn Well even has special Himalayan Singing Bells inside which are said to have magical qualities if you hear the bell chime!

Keswick Flood relief, Calvert Trust, Macmillan Cancer Care, Hospice at Home, Blood Bikes, Great North Air Ambulance, Mary Hewetson Hospital, West Cumbria Young Carers, 1st Responders, Amy’s Care, Keswick and local Primary Schools, Victorian Fayre, Pensioners Theatre trip, local youth, sports and arts groups – and -
