Community Corner

Helping people is part of our culture, so it is only natural for us to support local South Tyneside charities in our spare time.

Our chosen four which we can often be seen to help are:

The Charlie & Carter Foundation

Our chosen charity and one in which Director Angela Todd holds proud position of Trustee. The CCF provides much needed financial support to the families of seriously ill children with life limiting conditions along with raising awareness of the importance of organ donation.
