Children North East
Children North East is the oldest independent children’s charity in the North East. It has been transforming the lives of poorer children and families since 1891 when two local business men took groups of children on a boat trip to the seaside. Today the charity works with children, young people and families throughout the region with a number of projects and services working with all family members. Each year we support over 5000 children, young people and families to overcome problems associated with poverty and deprivation and enable them to reach their full potential in life. Our mission is to promote the rights of children and young people and counter the effects of inequalities on them, their families and their communities by promoting positive family relationships to ensure every child has a happy and fulfilling childhood, and every young person has the chance to develop their full potential. The services of Children North East today include: Support for families who are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless Support for children and young people who are in danger of being taken into care due to substance misuse or domestic violence within their family Support for families with children who find themselves struggling with issues like depression, debt, isolation etc. Support for primary school children who are under achieving in a school setting Support for young people who have issues around self-esteem, mental health, sexual health, housing, unemployment, training and education Support for children and families who live in areas of rural isolation Work to recognise and encourage the role of fathers and male carers in the life of a family and encourage the role of men in childcare..

Hi there!

Megathanks for considering sponsoring me! I should point out that this is the first one of these things I've done and I'm not one of these "fitness" people that you see about. Training for this is the first actual running I've done in about 18 years, so dig deep yeah?!

Children North East is a fantastic charity who do great work in a lot of different areas, so your donation will be very well spent. You can find out more about them, including their 125th birthday plans here:
