Success stories


Our fundraising volunteers are proof that even the simplest idea can raise lots of money and be a huge success!

  • Lee Ford has raised over £1000 for the Trust, completing a series of personal challenges from organising the Bothal Woods Family Fun Run, to completing his Cap-to-Cap cycle ride, covering 5 countries in 10 days and over 850 miles.
  • Danielle and Natalie Hodgson raised a fantastic £250 from their wildlife-themed event, organised as part of their college course, with live music, stalls and an art exhibition.
  • Andrew Cosham has raised over £1150 in sponsorship, completing a series of runs in the region, from the Blaydon Race to the Great North 10k and the gruelling Great North Run!
  • Chris and Leanne Bell and other volunteers raised over £300 in just a few hours through a supermarket bag-packing session.
