Kielder Quest Raises Thousands

An annual corporate fundraiser has been hailed as a great success after raising £5,700 to support services for disabled people, their families and carers.

Esh Group taking the Kielder Quest Trophy

Calvert Trust Kielder welcomed nine teams, including Northumbrian Water, Seymour Civil Engineering and UBS Wealth Management, for the 'Kielder Quest' challenge which involved physical and mental water and land based activities.

Teams of six battled through the instructor-led challenges, including Splash Dash, Plankety Blank and Jelly Legs, in a bid to take home the coveted first prize and Kielder Quest trophy.

TLW Solicitors Collecting the Team Spirit AwardThe Esh Group, who also won last year's challenge, were declared the eventual winners while TLW Solicitors received a special award for displaying the best team spirit of the day.

Graeme Hall, sub programme manager at the Esh Group and one of the winning team said:

"It was a tough day but it was great for team building and really good fun too - so much so that we'll be going for the treble next year!

Calvert Trust Kielder is a brilliant facility that helps and inspires a lot of people. We are proud to support them."

Corporate & Events Fundraiser at Calvert Trust Kielder Hazel Ditchburn organised the event. She said:

"It was a fantastic day. Very competitive, very muddy and long but everyone involved had a blast.

The Kielder Quest is a key fundraiser for us and a huge boost to our work with disabled adults and children, so the support of regional businesses is vital. We really appreciate their time and effort - and hope to see them all again next year!"
