Wainwright Society Calendar 2016

Following the success of previous years, the Society is producing a pictorial calendar for 2016. Once more, we are utilising the photographic skills of some of our members, all of whom have provided their work free of charge. The calendar is large format, size A3, with one page per month. Each month features a photograph taken by a member of the Society, together with a related sketch and quote from one of AW’s famous works.

The proceeds from sales of the 2016 Calendar will be donated to 2 organisations. Animal Rescue Cumbria which was established as a charity in 1974 and supported by A Wainwright, who became chairman and Betty. It was largely through AW’s generosity that land was purchased near Grayrigg, with Kapellan opening the following year as an animal rescue centre. 2015 therefore, will be the 30th anniversary of this event. Support from the Wainwright Society will enable the essential work of ARC to continue.

calender 2016 The second cause is the Lake District Mountain Rescue Search Dogs Association (which was called SARDA Lakes until 2010). The funds will be used to replace all the training radios of dog handlers, a vital part of communication whilst out on the fells.
