The Wainwright Society is pleased to announce that the 2020 Calendar has just been published and is now on sale. Once again, the format includes photographs of the Lake District taken by Society members, together with line drawings and quotations from the works of Alfred Wainwright. For the past ten years, the Calendar has completely sold out raising thousands of pounds for the Society’s designated charities!
The proceeds from sales of the 2020 calendar will be donated to the Blencathra Centre that is part of the Field Studies Council, an environmental education charity providing outdoor learning opportunities for all ages.
Tim Foster, Head of FSC Group North commented: ‘The fells and lakes changed the life of Alfred Wainwright and I am sure he would be pleased that the funds raised from the 2020 Calendar sales will be used by the FSC at the Blencathra Centre. All our work at Blencathra provides tremendous scope to work with The Wainwright Society. We plan to use the funds to establish an outdoor classroom in our grounds to enable field sketching and other activities when there is inclement weather. This will also allow us to view some of the 28 Wainwrights from our elevated position. In addition, we are developing a viewing platform and south facing interpretation board to be linked to a laminated fold out chart based on ‘field sketching Wainwright style’ ‘.
The price of the calendar has been held at £10 including p&p. The calendar can be purchased direct from the Society website using PayPal. Details are on the Society website: https://www.wainwright.org.uk/2020-calendar.html
