Trek the Trust

1 September 2021 – 30 September 2021

Get sponsored to walk, run or cycle 12 miles – the distance between our Care Homes. You can join us in the Forest of Dean on Sunday 5th September to walk together on a well marked trail. Alternatively clock up the miles in your own time and locality, over the month of September. We are raising money for Gardens for Wellbeing – to make our Homes’ gardens even lovelier spaces for enjoying nature, keeping active and nourishing the senses.


The Big Give – Making a Splash!

A new pool for exercise, wellbeing and fun.

For this years Big Give campaign we will be raising money for a new hydrotherapy pool at our site in Lydbrook.  Our new Hydrotherapy pool will provide accessible, affordable facilities to people with disabilities. . Every penny we raise will enable our disabled clients and the wider special needs community to benefit from the freedom and joy of swimming, in a safe and welcoming environment.

You can donate from 30th November – 7th December 2021 and all donations will be doubled!


Summer Fair

The Summer Fair is an important date in the Orchard Trust calendar. It is a chance for the local community to visit our site, see the smallholding animals and have some fun and games, all with music and refreshments!
Whether the event is online or a public event, it is an important way for the Trust to share the good work that it does, raise some funds and of course have some fun.
