Branch information

Gateshead is a small fundraising branch which covers the Gateshead and Newcastle areas. Most of us live in Ryton, Blaydon or Whickham. We are a friendly group and welcome new members, either to be part of our committee or just to spare a couple of hours to help with a collection.

We are always in need of volunteers to help in any way.

Please contact the Treasurer for opportunities at this branch or check our volunteering vacancies.

We only meet when we need to! We do most of our organising and communication via email.

Our fundraising activities include supermarket collections, coffee mornings, collection boxes, Betty's Pots (jars for 5ps) and community events/talks. In 2018 we raised nearly £10,000. We would like to raise much more, with your help!
