Calvert Trust - http://www.calvert-trust.org.uk
The Calvert Trust is a charity whose aim is to challenge disability 'through outdoor adventure'. The Activities include hill walking, rock climbing, abseiling, horse riding, archery, sailing, canoeing and cycling.
The whole ethos is to teach the participants what they can do and not what they can't do which is often the case in their normal environment.
Along with other Clubs in Rotary District 1070 we sponsor a local physically or mentally challenged young adult to enjoy a residential course at the Keswick Centre for the last week in April each year. The week promotes independence in a safe environment and everyone is encouraged to do as much as they can and, frequently, more than they themselves expect.
Without doubt, everyone who attends a Calvert Trust expedition will find their comfort zone challenged at some time during the week and the impacts are often life changing.
