The Wainwright Society Calendar, first produced for 2010, continues to be hugely popular. Once again the Society has produced a calendar for 2015, 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 2015 Calendar will be donated to The Brathay Exploration Group Trust. The Trust, formed in 1947, is a charity that takes young people on exploration in the UK and throughout the world. They also provide opportunities for disadvantaged and disabled children in Cumbria to explore the fells and learn about environmental issues that affect this wonderful landscape.
The Calendar proceeds will be used to fund ‘Taster Weekends’ enabling children from disadvantaged backgrounds to experience what Alfred Wainwright described when he first beheld the view of the Lakeland mountains as, ‘a moment of magic’.
The Society hopes to be able to fund a two-year programme of ‘Taster Weekends’ that will benefit over 200 children who live in Cumbria.
