Katie’s challenge

Have your say

A TRAVEL agent is preparing for a double challenge this month to raise money for the Calvert Trust.

Katie Macleod, an independent travel agent for Travel Counsellors, is facing the infamous Three Peaks Challenge to climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden in less than 24 hours, before taking part in the Great North Bike Ride, which starts at Seahouses on Sunday, August 28.

The Calvert Trust, which has a centre at Kielder, offers outdoor activities for disabled people and their families. Katie said: “The charity really means a lot to me and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of all my sponsors in Newcastle.”
