Rotary helps Lake District Calvert Trust’s new brain injury centre
Calvert Reconnections receives a £2000 boost from Keswick Rotary
Lake District Calvert Trust’s new brain injury centre was presented with a welcome £2000 cheque today from Keswick Rotary. The Trust has been renovating and refurbishing the listed building at Old Windebrowe since January 2019, to create a home from home environment for a new kind of rehabilitation, building on the Trust’s expertise in outdoor activities. It will focus on people who are recovering from a brain injury as a result of, for example, a road traffic or industrial accident.
Rotarians John Hayes and Tony Duncan ventured onto the site to present the cheque to Centre Director Sean Day who commented “Keswick Rotary has been a long-standing supporter and friend to Calvert Trust and this donation is very welcome. We are now so close to our fundraising target to complete and open the new Centre early in 2020. It’s a very exciting development for the Trust and a significant opportunity for Keswick to take a pioneering lead in a unique new approach to brain injury rehabilitation”.
