Egger Raise Funds for Kielder

Nick hands over the keys for the Golf Buggy

Egger UKHexham based company EGGER presented Calvert Trust Kielder with a cheque for £5,000 to purchase a brand new golf buggy.

Throughout the year Hexham employees organise numerous fundraising events ranging from bike rides and golf days through to bowling nights and raffles to raise money for local causes.

Nick McClughin, Marketing Manager and member of the Egger Charity Committee said:

“Each year the EGGER family and company provides a significant charitable donation to each plant in the Group and it is this generous donation along with the efforts of our Hexham employees which has enabled us to present the cheque to Calvert Trust Kielder. 

At EGGER we believe it is very important to give something back to the Tynedale community.  Calvert Trust Kielder provide invaluable help and support to the area and I am delighted to present this cheque to enable them to continue their good work.”

Hazel Munro, Corporate & Events Fundraiser at Calvert Trust Kielder said:

“We are delighted to receive such a generous donation for a second year from EGGER UK Ltd, to support our provision of adventurous outdoor activities to children and adults with disabilities. The money raised through EGGER’s charity fund in 2011 has enabled us to purchase this golf buggy, which will be used to take our visitors along the nature trails and paths around Kielder Water and into Kielder Forest.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Nick and the team at Egger for making this donation possible."
