Various charities benefit from fundraising on site and from the efforts of employees.
For many years St Mary’s Hospice in Ulverston has had a close connection with the Estate, Lord Cavendish having been a former Chairman. They benefit from collections from visitors to the site and also from collections at the Holker Garden Festival.
In 2012 the staff in various parts of Holker Group have been working to support the efforts of the Calvert Trust. A grandstand dinner and race night at Cartmel and Burlington staff cycling in the C2C challenge to raise money for The Trust are just two examples of the initiatives undertaken.
The Calvert Trust was established to ‘challenge disability through outdoor adventure’. For more information go to www.calvert-trust.org.uk
