2018 is our 50th anniversary

In 1968 parents of children with learning disability started Carlisle MENCAP. 2018 will be very exciting for us

We are planning lots of things you can join in with. We  have a special logo for the year as well a # CMat50 so you can follow us on twitter.

There will be a mixture of fundraising, awareness raising and just fun events for members and the general public to enjoy throughout the year.

There will be events every month so far plans include:

Thanksgiving at the Cathedral in January,

60’s celebration in March,

Casino Royal -James Bond themed fundraiser in June – with a real casino

Festival in August – which will include a giant zip wire from a large crane

December fair and old fashioned Christmas party.

Carlisle MENCAP were lucky enough to receive a £54000 grant from the Heritage Lottery which be used by Carlisle MENCAP’s disabled members and members of the youth zone to create artwork to celebrate the history. This project is supported by Tullie house museum.
