2020 has been a unique year. With the impact of COVID-19, many members of the community have endured hardship financially and mentally.
Through the incredible work from our staff and volunteers, we have supported families in North Tyneside through these unprecedented times. We've provided meals to those who couldn't get out. Help and advice to those who didn't know where to turn, and offered opportunities to get people back on their feed.
As the pandemic lingers on, Christmas is uncertain. The Christmas season should be something to look forward to, especially for children. We'd like to make that a reality.
We want to give each child in North Tyneside a traditional Christmas stocking filled with Christmas love, seasonal fruit, small gifts and treats to bring the joy to households that have been devastated by the pandemic and watched the world change around them.
We need your help to make this happen.
Please consider donating to our cause at cedarwoodtrust.com/donate and help fund our 'Bringing Back the Stocking' campaign for Christmas.
We're running a kids' club at the centre during half-term next week. Sessions will be from 11:00am to 12:30pm and will be offering lunch too. There are 15 spaces available for children aged 4-8 years. Parents need to book a space for their children. Please call the centre on 0191 259 0245 to secure a place.
