Welcome to Hays Travel Cockerton! As Branch Manager, I have worked in travel for over 14 years, starting as an Apprentice and progressing up to Branch Manager. I have been a Manager within Hays Travel for many years now and have recently moved back to my home town, where I joined my new team at Cockerton. I have visited fantastic destinations over the years, but my top three have to be Dubai, Las Vegas, and Rhodes.

As well as selling holidays, we're passionate about our local community and love to support charity events and schools.
We recently took part in the Great North Run in order to raise money for the Toma Fund. The charity is dedicated to helping children and young adults (between the ages of 0-24 years) diagnosed with cancer in the North East and Cumbria. Altough the course was challenging, it was a great experience and we are happy to have manage to raise over £600 for this great cause.
We also had 2 of the girls take part in a charity skydive and raised over £2000 for The Daisy Chain Project Teesside. This charity was close to our heart and helps support lots of families with relatives on the autistic spectrum. The girls absolutely loved this however have said they wont be doing it again!
