Choosing from the many deserving charities can be difficult, so we base our selection on the following core principles:
- Charity must be based in the North East (if national we request the money raised is spent on people residing in the North East)
- Must be a registered charity with audited accounts
- A representative from the charity must be prepared to attend a presentation evening where they are required to explain exactly how the funds raised will be utilised in their charity
- We do not support charities with high administration costs and insist accounts are transparent
We are delighted to announce the two charities we have chosen to support in 2017 are Butterfly Giving (Registered Charity No: 1150897) and Family Help Darlington (Registered Charity No: 1150798). Both charities really inspired us when they shared details of their great work. For more information on each charity, click their logo below:
