The Charlie Cookson Foundation

Thanks to The Newcastle Building Society Community Fund we are now able to purchase new IT equipment for our charity.


We can not Thank The Newcastle Building Society Community Fund enough for awarding us an amazing £3000!!

We submitted an application to Newcastle Building Society explaining that we are in desperate need of new IT equipment to allow our charity to run more efficiently. We were delighted to receive a phone call from Melanie at the South Shields branch giving us the fantastic news that we had been awarded a grant of £3000 !

We have managed, over the past 5 years, by using second hand equipment which allowed us to do what we needed to do but has our foundation grows so does the work load and the office equipment we have is holding us back in driving the foundation forward. The difference new IT equipment is going to make to the day to day running of our charity is going be fantastic, staff and volunteers are now going to be able to work much more effectively and efficiently.

We could not have renewed our equipment if we had not received this grant…………. We THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.
