Cash for Kids North
Cash for Kids North East is a children’s charity based in the North East of England. Their remit is to support disabled and disadvantaged children within our local communities. Most of the children we support are the 1 in 3 that are living in poverty.
In response to the impact of Coronavirus, Cash for Kids launched an appeal to help the families that need it most.
Right now, those on low incomes who are living in or on the brink of poverty are really feeling the pressure, and this will have an impact on their children, and to that wanted to support them during this difficult time.
Bobbie Chapman, North East Fundraising Executive appealed to Durham Freemasons for a grant from their Masonic Charitable Foundation.
We are delighted that the application has been successful, and Cash for Kids NE has now received a grant of £3500 to aid their efforts to support those in desperate need.
Together we can help make a difference to the lives of local children in the North East, who through no fault of their own, have found themselves – along with their families – in this unprecedented situation.
