Cumbria Club

The Cumbria Club is our membership scheme for individuals and families who want to help in transforming the lives of vulnerable adults and younger people across the county.

You don’t have to live in Cumbria to be a member – we welcome people from across the country.

• a copy of our Annual Review giving details on how and where donations have been spent
• an invitation to our Annual Celebration Dinner.
• a vote at our AGM.
• invitations to our events throughout the year (including outside of Cumbria).
