Amy Clark Climbs Mount Snowdon

Fifteen Year old Amy Clark climbed Mount Snowden on 14 April as part of her Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. She chose Calvert Trust Kielder as her chosen charity. Amy from Corbridge is currently in Year 10 at Uppingham School. Her family have been active fundraisers throughout her childhood for the Calvert Trust Kielder and other charities.


Amy and her two friends battled snow and freezing temperatures to reach the summit on 14 April. Amy gained sponsorship and support from friends, family and the local community to help her raise a £140. This money will help the Calvert Trust Kielder to continue challenging disability through outdoor activities.


Charlotte Gaunt, Fundraiser at the Calvert Trust Kielder said

‘Amy is a remarkable young girl taking on the Duke of Edinburgh award. The climb must have been exceedingly hard in the weather conditions they faced and I am so proud that this young resilient woman not only achieved her goal but also helped raise vital funds for the Calvert Trust Kielder, and that at even such a young age is so willing to help others – Well Done Amy!’


The Duke of Edinburgh Award is open to young people aged 14+ and can be a life changing experience, pushing personal boundaries, gaining new skills and enhancing CVs and university applications. At the Calvert Trust Kielder we do all we can to help and support people's with DofE’s.
