This delightful picture was sent to us by Bendrigg Trust, a charity specialising in providing high quality activity courses for disabled and disadvantaged people and those with life-limiting illnesses. We supported them in the year with a grant towards operating costs.
Bendrigg has a Centre located between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks and their visitors can participate in many different activities including caving, climbing, canoeing and abseiling. More than 3,000 children and adults visit and take part each year.
Some of the wonderful feedback they receive was also shared with us and it seems that everyone has a wonderful time challenging themselves and making new friends, which in turn leads to growing confidence, independence and many other positive benefits.
