Cumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Peter McCall and Mark Jenkinson MP for Workington welcomed Home Secretary, Priti Patel to Calvert Trust, Bassenthwaite.
The Calvert Trust enables disabled adults and children, together with their families and friends, to achieve their potential through the challenge of outdoor adventure in the countryside.
The Home Secretary reiterated her support for Peter McCall who has been the Police and Crime Commissioner for Cumbria for the past five years. She also congratulated his work and support of partners and organisations across Cumbria such as the Calvert Trust.
Peter McCall said: "Calvert Trust does a fantastic job and I have been pleased to support them over a number of years, both personally and as the Police and Crime Commissioner for Cumbria. It was important that their hard work is recognised and that is why I wanted to showcase their site to the Home Secretary, Priti Patel during her visit to Cumbria."
Mark Jenkinson MP added: ‘I have visited the Calvert Trust on a number of occasions and I know lockdown has been hard for them. However, due to the generosity of our Cumbrian Community they have managed to survive the pandemic and are set to open again next month. I know that there will be a number of organisations, families and individuals that will be delighted that this facility will be reopening and I will continue to offer my support to this excellent charity going forward.’
