Support Barnstondale

We rely on your help and support to achieve our mission

Barnstondale provides a natural setting for personal development, through sport and adventure, study and reflection. We have been accommodating visitors for more than 60 years and became a registered charity in 2001. Although predominantly from the North West region, we also accommodate visitors nationally and as far afield as Ireland and France. 

Since the formation of the charity we have provided a safe and inclusive environment for people of all abilities to enjoy; in a normal year we support over 6000 young people. Barnstondale is for many, their first time experiencing the outdoors and their only holiday or respite of the year.

Why Your Help Is Important Now, More Than Ever

Barnstondale has been acutely impacted by lost revenue since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. All bookings from late March 2020 were cancelled and we were only able to gain credible income from April 2021, losing considerable custom over our busiest period. In 2020 alone we lost close to £350,000 in revenue and are running at a loss for 2021 due to the continued impact of the pandemic.

We focused on fundraising to help plug the gap and maintain a good financial position for the future. This income was obtained through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme with considerable generosity coming in the form of grants and individual donations.
