YOU CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE
Bendrigg Trust is a registered charity and we receive no statutory funding. It costs around £1,000,000 to keep our vital services supporting 3,000 disabled and disadvantaged people each year. We normally raise around £650,000 through our subsidised fees charged to users and have to raise another £350,000 to cover our operating costs.
With the covid-19 pandemic, outdoor centres, including Bendrigg have lost a huge portion of income and are struggling to make ends meet whilst still trying to provide vital services for disabled people and their families. Fundraising for Bendrigg at this time will make a huge difference and will enable us to continue providing much needed services throughout the pandemic.
So why not join #TeamBendrigg this year where every pound you raise will help to make a huge difference to the lives of disabled people accross the UK.
