The Calvert Ball supported by Bishopwearmouth Co-Operative

October 09, 2017

For the last three years Bishopwearmouth Co-operative have supported The Calvert Ball, creating the most amazing displays and decorations.

They first became involved in 2015 during the Enchanted Forest Ball, before exceeding themselves with last year's theme of Dark Skies.

This year looks set to be another great collaboration, as the team comes together to help create an autumnal feel to The Calvert Ball on Friday 13 October 2017.

Shaunm service Manager said of working with Calvert Trust Kielder  "Over the past three years Bishopwearmouth Co-operative has worked in partnership assisting with the Calvert Ball, this has become the highlight of the year for the people we support. The team enjoy the challenge of assisting creating the different theme each year at the Hilton. Another major highlight was when the team visited the Kielder site for a outdoor activities day which they absolutely loved. "
