Our Lodge meetings may be temporarily suspended, but our Charitable work goes on regardless.
Just this week we received a lovely letter of thanks from
the Calvert Trust, based in nearby Exmoor.
Calvert Trust Exmoor is a five-star accredited activity centre, located in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of Exmoor National Park. Their award-winning centre enables people with physical, learning, behavioural and sensory disabilities to experience exciting, challenging and enjoyable outdoor activities,
together with their friends and families.
They welcome guests of all ages and levels of ability.
Their letter detailed some of the pressing problems they have encountered as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic
“… we are extremely grateful for your support now more than ever to help us through this incredibly challenging period”.
“Calvert Trust Exmoor… now faces the greatest challenge to its existence through the impact of Coronavirus”.
However the Team are working hard to ensure that as soon as the current restrictions are lifted they can return to their vital and essential work
“…the Trustees and key members of our staff team are working hard to ensure the continued viability of Calvert Trust Exmoor.“
“We are enormously proud of… the incredibly positive impact Calvert Trust Exmoor has had on the lives of so many. It is with the help of people like you that we are determined that come what may, Calvert Trust Exmoor will continue to enrich people’s lives long into the future.“Calvert Trust
