Funding Adventures

Each year our income is divided amongst schools and youth groups to allow young

people to take part in challenging developmental activities

Changing aspiration through Adventure.

When we exert ourselves physically and mentally, we discover our true inner strength to overcome life’s challenges and obstacles. Connecting our young people and ex-service people through adventure, they each discover new skills and realise the transferability of existing skills, which is where the real magic happens and the catalyst for growth truly begins.

As the Michelle Jurd Trust celebrates it’s 10th Anniversary, we stop to take stock; to realign our mission; to remember why we started, and where we want to go. And we’re very clear - we need to be increasing the number of opportunities for adventure and exploration to the young people and veterans of Cumbria.
