Calvert Trust

The Calvert Trust is an independent charity providing life-changing experiences for people of all ages with sensory, learning and physical disabilities. As part of their anniversary celebrations, 2016 has seen the central Lake District invaded by a flock of life sized decorated fantasy Herdwick ewes appearing in unexpected places - all paying homage to the Herdwick’s iconic status and all in support of the Calvert Trust’s 40th anniversary capital fundraising drive. Here at Heart of the Lakes we were delighted to become one of the Calvert Trust’s sponsors of the ‘Go Herdwick’ initiative, with a ewe placed outside of the Heart of the Lakes offices in Ambleside and a lamb in the Keswick shop. Local artist, Libby Edmondson , worked with us on this initiative. The Sheep trail became very popular over the season with visitors exploring the area to find the muticoloured sheep – wonderful photographs were taken and everyone had lots of fun. The whole event culminated in the fantastic fund raising auction held in October
