Are you ready for a fun weekend away?

Meningitis Now Believe & Achieve Calvert Trust residential weekend

Of course you are, and we have just the event for you. 

We’re heading back to the fabulous Calvert Trust premises on Exmoor and we’d like you to join us to take some time out, meet new people and try some new activities.

This weekend is offered as part of our Believe & Achieve programme for young people aged 18 to 25 impacted by meningitis. If that’s you, then you’re very welcome to come along. And if you want to bring someone to share the weekend with you or you’re a bit nervous then there is space for a friend, sibling, parent or carer too.

It kicks off on the early evening  of Friday 24 April and runs through to early afternoon on the Sunday 26 April.

Free to attend

Our Believe & Achieve Officer Ellie Murray said: “This weekend is free to attend and we’ll also provide all meals and pay for scheduled activities.

“This is a great opportunity for an activity-packed weekend away in a relaxing space, but don’t just take our word for it.

“This is what one of our previous participants told us.

Amazing weekend

"“I’ve had such an amazing weekend with these incredibly lovely and inspirational people. It’s funny to think we didn’t know each other two days ago but I’ve left this weekend with some amazing friends.

“I don’t think I’ve ever met such a wonderful, friendly, incredible bunch of people”."

So, there you have it, straight from a genuine Believer & Achiever. What are you waiting for? 

Find out more by emailing our friendly Believe & Achieve team and express your interest in attending through our Believe & Achieve Weekend - Calvert Trust page.
