Solicitors Make Big Splash for Kielder

A North Tyneside personal injury law firm TLW Solicitors, which specialises in helping people who have suffered life-changing injuries, is sponsoring Calvert Trust Kielder as part of its ongoing support of good causes in the region.

TLW Solicitors on Kielder Water

TLW’s partners Peter McKenna and John Burn, accompanied by Sarah Spruce and newly-appointed clinical negligence specialist Christina Batson, recently spent time at the centre to witness first-hand how their clients might benefit from the services and facilities the charity has to offer.

Peter McKenna, Partner at TLW Solicitors said:

“Our firm often deals with clients who have suffered a life changing injury and we do our best to help them achieve their goals. This often includes advice and referrals to other providers and centres. Facilities such as those available at Calvert Trust Kielder, if appropriate for the needs of our clients, would be an ideal place where they can feel safe, welcome and supported, and appreciate there is life following a disability.”

Christina Batson, TLW Solicitors said:

“It was fantastic to see the facilities and accommodation available at Calvert Trust Kielder. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who would benefit from the services they provide.”

To cement the relationship further, TLW Solicitors have taken a gold sponsorship package for the charity’s annual Ball. The Calvert Ball is taking place on Friday 11 October at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead and this year’s theme is ‘Exploring Kielder Water’.

Peter McKenna, Partner, TLW Solicitors said:

“TLW is delighted to be associated with The Calvert Ball. The work that Calvert Trust Kielder does is absolutely inspiring and we are more than happy to aid their work in any way we can.”

During the firm’s visit to the centre Peter, Christina and colleagues enjoyed a paddle in two-man kayaks whilst enjoying the peace and tranquillity of Northern Europe’s largest man-made lake.

Peter Cockerill, CEO, Calvert Trust Kielder said:

“We would like to say a special thank you to Peter and his team at TLW Solicitors.  We are extremely grateful to all our sponsors for their support which helps us to truly change lives. Without the dedication and support of these local businesses and friends, we would not be able to host The Calvert Ball, which raises substantial funds for the Trust.” 

Other sponsors of The Calvert Ball include Hilton Newcastle Gateshead, Perro Design & Communication, Robson Print, Pansy Potters and Quantum Pharmaceuticals.
