A children’s charity will continue to build better links with the youngsters it supports thanks to a donation from our North East region.
The £8,057 proceeds from our Linden Homes Charity Ball have been donated to Children North East for its work with children most in need across the region.
Staged at Newcastle’s Discovery Museum and attended by over 200 guests, the event was hosted by BBC Radio Newcastle’s breakfast show presenter Alfie Joey. Following its success Linden Homes is planning a repeat fundraiser this year.
Carol Taylor, Senior Fundraiser with Children North East, said: “This generous donation is very much appreciated and every penny will be spent helping children in the region.
“Our services provide a real lifeline for many children who face issues in their lives which can damage confidence, undermine self-esteem and ultimately prevent them from achieving their true potential. So this will help us to continue to provide this vital support.”
Handing over the money, Kate Brooks, Linden Homes’ Head of Sales, said: “Now that we are becoming more established in the region, with more developments being launched, we want to support the communities in which we work and were very impressed by the achievements of Children North East.”
Linden Homes has contributed over £12.8 million towards outdoor open areas throughout the UK since 2010.
All of our homes come with Smart Meters. These have the capacity to automatically send readings to your energy provider.
