A children’s charity has raised more than £55,000 for a winter clothing appeal.
Cash For Kids in the north-east is celebrating a successful charity lunch following a local fundraising event that collected more than £55,920 for vulnerable children in the region.
Charity manager Michelle Ferguson said: “We are completely overwhelmed by the support from everyone who attended the lunch and who made donations on the day – £55,920 is such an incredible total.
“Proceeds from the lunch will help ensure needy children in the north-east are properly clothed this winter.
“We would like to thank CALA Homes for all their help and support and we look forward to arranging another successful event with the team in the future.”
The funds raised will be used to provide vouchers for families to purchase winter clothes for disadvantaged children.
