Challenging Disability Through Outdoor Adventure

Much Needed Treat for Charity Competition Winner

An action-packed weekend of family fun was on the cards for the winners of a competition organised to highlight the work of Calvert Trust Kielder.

Ashley Hands with her Family

Ashley Hands of Gateshead, her husband David and four year old daughter Lily were treated to a weekend break with a half-day programme of activities at the centre in Kielder Water & Forest Park.

Ashley won the competition when she visited the Disability North East (DNEX) exhibition in November, where TLW Solicitors of North Shields sponsored the Calvert Trust stand.

The exhibition is aimed at people with disabilities and special needs, as well as their carers and the professionals who support them.

TLW Solicitors teamed up with the trust to offer one winner the chance to spend three nights in a four-star Scandinavian style chalet at Calvert Trust Kielder – and take lucky guests along too.

Laura Brown of TLW Solicitors said:

“We had a lot of interest in the competition. The activities Calvert Trust Kielder arranges are amazing – everything from sailing and climbing to archery and hand-cranked bikes.

It means people can take part in activities they never thought possible, safe in the knowledge that Trust staff are there to encourage and support them all the way.

We’re delighted to support Calvert Trust Kielder with the valuable work it does and the help it gives so many people – and we’re pleased Ashley, David and Lily had such a great time.”

Ashley said:

“I went along to DNEX as part of my job, to see what Calvert Trust Kielder offers so I can pass on the information to people.

I was delighted to win – it’s the first competition prize I’ve ever had! My family know Kielder quite well, and it’s a lovely place to go, particularly in February when Christmas is a long way behind you and there’s not a lot to look forward to."
