Local Accountancy Firm Walk Kielder Water to Raise over £5000

September 25, 2017

Hexham-based accountancy firm Patricia J Arnold & Co Ltd has raised over £5000 for its 2017 chosen charity, Calvert Trust Kielder, by walking the full distance around Kielder Reservoir.

Weeks were spent preparing for this challenge undertaken by staff, family and friends. The effort paid off with 15 of the 19 walkers completing the full distance of 25.3 miles and the remaining four contributing substantially to the total of 428.3 miles walked.

The weather on Saturday 2nd September was near perfect for walking although a stronger breeze might have kept the ever-present Kielder midges at bay!

To mark this milestone and celebrate their achievement the walkers and fundraisers held an open evening at their office in West Orchard House for clients, contacts and friends.

Calvert Trust Kielder is the firm’s chosen charity for this year and in addition to the sponsored walk other fundraising activities have included supporting their golf day and a team visit to the centre and Kielder Observatory. The next milestone on the fundraising calendar is the firm’s silver sponsorship of The Calvert Ball in October.

Tricia Arnold, owner and founder of the firm said: “I feel very strongly that any organisation that enables people who confront major physical and mental challenges to live as full a life as possible should be supported.  Calvert Trust Kielder does this BIG TIME and we hope we can help a little bit towards their goal.Spending time with the people at Calvert Trust Kielder is also a great pleasure for our staff, we really enjoy our visits to the centre”.
