Bendrigg Trust Expeditions

We received a grant of £10,000 in 2011 from the Big Lottery to purchase equipment to provide adventurous expeditions for people with a disability. We have just run our first successful expedition! We now need to raise a further £10,000 to employ a part-time expeditions co-ordinator for 2012

one year for 2012

  • Need


    Provide exciting and adventurous opportunities for people with a disability to take part in short expeditions. There are very few providers of such facilities currently in the UK


    We have the equipment and expertise to run a number of expeditions for people with a disaiblity throughout 2012. Through the employjent of an expepeditions coordinator for 2012 we will provide amazing opportunities for people with a disability that would otherwise not be available to them.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To provide oportunities for people with a disaiblity to participate in adventurous expeditions.


    » By arranging a number of expeditions during 2012 using activities such as walking, canoeing, climbing and caving.

    Success will be when we have completed 2 or 3 expeditions during 2012 with more planned for the following years.

  • Impact


    Offering oportunieis for people with a disability to take part in adventurous activities and expeditions. This is something not readily available in the UK at the moment. Such work gives participants increased self-confidence and promotes their independence and feeling of self-worth.


    If we do not raise sufficient funds then we will not be able to undertake our planned expeditions for 2012


    We will publish a report on completion of each expeditions and distribute to all donors.
