Award-winning North East law firm Gordon Brown held a Thanksgiving wine tasting event in aid of Calvert Trust Kielder.

Gordon Brown Law Firm welcomed over 50 people to the Harley Davidson Showroom at the Silverlink, North Shields, for the charity wine tasting event and raised over £1,000.

Jonathon Stokes, partner at Gordon Brown Law Firm said:

“We are delighted to work with Calvert Trust Kielder. The event enabled us to bring together clients old and new for wine tasting with a difference. The night was great fun with the added benefit of raising £1,000 for the charity.” 

Guests at the event were treated to a selection of American wines to taste supplied by The Wine Chamber of Tynemouth.  A large selection of American canapés was served and guests were given the opportunity to enter a grand raffle to win a fantastic prize.

The prize winner will be taking a five hour ride on a three-seater touring trike around Weardale, Hexham, Kielder Water & Forest Park, up to the Scottish Borders and back through Corbridge. 

Gordon Brown Law Firm, hope to double the money raised by donating the funds through The Big Give Christmas Challenge.

Jonathan added:

“Every year, ‘The Big Give’ runs a matched funding scheme to support local charities, Calvert Trust Kielder has been chosen to benefit from this year’s scheme, the money raised will help to build an additional five fully accessible lodges at the centre.” 

Hazel Ditchburn, Corporate & Events Fundraiser at Calvert Trust Kielder said:

“We would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at Gordon Brown for their continued support of our work with disabled children and adults.  We rely on support from local businesses such as Gordon Brown Law Firm to help us to continue to provide our often life changing service.”
