A group of youngsters joined activity experts to undertake a day of activities at Calvert Trust Kielder as part of its 30th birthday celebrations.

A total of 50 children with special needs from Morpeth’s Collingwood School were treated to the day out, and with the sun shining they bravely tackled the indoor climbing wall, enjoyed the thrill of the ‘King Swing’, and scaled the mobile climbing tower.

In between challenges there was also face painting, balloons and of course lots of birthday cake.

Local charity Cash for Kids teamed up with Calvert Trust Kielder to arrange the fun day out and also provided the transport to the centre in Kielder Water & Forest Park.

Stephanie Simpson, regional charity manager at Cash for Kids, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Calvert Trust Kielder, and helping them to celebrate 30 years of success.”
