Typical destinations include Bassenthwaite Lake, Buttermere, Borrowdale, St Bees, Newlands Valley. Trips might be drop-off and pick-up, half or full days out. We do not tend to travel outside Cumbria.

Having volunteer drivers often relieves a Tutor or a another staff member of having to drive and helps us enormously. Requirements: Clean license held for 5 years, doctor’s clearance (if required), proven safe driver.
