We're delighted to announce that we've been chosen as the Charity of the Year for 2021 by Northumberland Estates.

Northumberland Estates manage a great many properties across the North East including many in North Tyneside. They are also responsible for the management of Alnwick Castle.

We've been working with them to make the most of 2021 and despite the challenges of Covid-19 we've been able to:

  • arrange a family trip to The Rising Sun Country Park during the May holiday week
  • be linked with The Country Trust who have supplied bee bomb kits for our Connected Kids Club and will helping us with summer holiday activities and farm visits
  • have a visit from the Deputy Head Gardener from Alnwick Garden to provide advice and support for our Garden Team
  • receive funding towards our running costs

We're now planning for the summer holidays and beyond. We're really grateful for their support and are looking forward to working with them for the benefit of local people.
