YOU CAN MAKE A 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.
Although we raise around £650,000 through our subsidised fees charged to users we still need to raise another £350,000 to cover our operating costs. These funds come in the form of grants, individual donations, corporate partners, fundraising events, legacies and more.
So why not join #TeamBendrigg this year where every pound you raise really will help to make a difference!

WHAT IMPACT WILL MY FUNDRAISING HAVE?
OVER A QUARTER OF THE 13.3 MILLION DISABLED PEOPLE LIVING IN THE UK SAY THAT THEY DO NOT FREQUENTLY HAVE CHOICE AND CONTROL OVER THEIR DAILY LIVES.
This has to change. Bendrigg Trust has a mission to promote inclusion, encourage independence and build the self-confidence of disabled and disadvantaged people, through the provision of adventure activities.
The money you fundraise will enable people with disabilities to have amazing outdoor adventures & life changing experiences. See and hear from our visitors to put a face to the people you’ll be helping by reading Our Impact Page.
