Charity Round Up
Wednesday 31 May, 09:00
There are so many great local charities to support, either through donations, volunteering or taking part in fundraising activities. If you need some ideas, here is a non-exhaustive list of some of the charities in our region.
** The People’s Kitchen provides hot meals and other essentials like toiletries and clothes, as well as a friendly ear, to those in need in Newcastle. Volunteering roles include preparing food, working on an allotment and other administrative roles.
** Children’s Cancer North supports children with cancer and their families from across the region. As well as helping children to cope with treatment, the charity also funds research into childhood cancer. They have lots of ideas for improving support further, including providing more toys and better wifi in the children’s wards, as well as giving parents support packs.
**Bubble Foundation UK is based in the Great North Children’s Hospital in the RVI and helps children born without a fully functioning immune system, for whom an infection like the common cold could be fatal. The charity is raising money both to help the 1 in 58 000 children born with an immunodeficiency and to fund research.
** Red Balloons. This brilliant charity are dedicated to helping build a happier and healthier environment, where mental health can be discussed as openly and as confidently as physical health. They aim to reduce stigma, raise awareness of the trickier subjects such as suicide, work towards suicide prevention and help bust any myths around mental health.
