Adventurous spirit leads to major award

OUTDOOR pursuits centre Avalanche Adventure in Sibbertoft is celebrating after winning a leading award.

The centre, which organises an exciting range of activities for anything from team building sessions to just to a little bit of competitive fun between friends or colleagues, took the Best Rural Recreational Business at the recent Midlands region finals of the Rural Business Awards.

The recreational pursuits the venue is known for include race buggies, quad biking, Land Rover driving, clay pigeon shooting and a host of other activities.

Winning the Midlands region award means that Avalanche Adventure will go through to the national finals, due to be held February next year in Manchester.

Robin Sawyer, who runs Avalanche Adventure said: “It was very exciting to even be shortlisted, especially with the likes of Go Ape in the mix, so to win was absolutely fantastic!

“The centre has become very well established now and we have a good client base, we felt it was time to push things forward and spread the word. We therefore thought entering the Rural Business Awards would be a good way to do that.

“We didn’t really expect to win, but all the hard work we put into getting the entry form just right and showcasing what we do certainly paid off.”

For business users, as well as the wide range of activities, the Sibbertoft centre also has a modern cabin, where presentations or meetings can be held. The cabin is available free of charge to those booking half or full day activity packages, while team challenges such as reverse steer and blindfold driving can be arranged as part of a session.

Prices start at £60 per person, depending on what activities the group would like to try and how adventurous they are. Activity vouchers from Avalanche Adventure make for an ideal gift for rewarding exceptional employees.
