TSB Make a Difference at Kielder

A team of North East bank managers spent a day helping out at Calvert Trust Kielder last week.

TSB North East

11 branch managers from community bank TSB spent the day at the centre to help with site maintenance and gardening as part of their 'Day to Make a Difference' programme which enables employees to spend at least one day each year volunteering for a charity or community project of their choice.

Team Leader, Bev Gibson who is the Area Manager for TSB North East said:

"We very much enjoyed spending the day at Calvert Trust Kielder  Watching one of the guests on the zip wire will remain in my memory bank for a long, long time; the Trust's staff do great work and I can see how fulfilled they all are.

There were texts and emails pinging between the team last night, photos being shared and real competition to see who was the most tired!

We chose to use our Day to Make a Difference to help Calvert Trust Kielder becasue of the work they do helping disabled children and adults to have life changeing experiences and hopefully we have made a little bit of difference to this most worthwhile charity."

The team worked with the maintenance team and got involved with weeding key areas around site.

Martin Reynolds, Maintenance Manager at Calvert Trust Kielder said:

"We have had such a busy summer and their simply hasn't been time for my small team to get all the work done around site. 

It is essential that we keep the site clean and the landcape in good condition for our guests. It was fantastic working with the team from TSB, they got so much done in such a short space of time and what they did has made a real difference. A massive thank you to Bev and her team for all their hard graft and the impact it has had!"
