Hilton Newcastle Gateshead has teamed up with DM Thomas Foundation for Young People to give away £10,000 to charities helping children and young people across the North East.

Running from Tuesday 13th November until Monday 3rd December, local charities, schools, clubs and non-profit organisations will have the opportunity to apply for a share of the Newcastle £10K Giveaway. The Giveaway is aimed at helping organisations, often with tight resources, that work hard to improve the lives of young people in local communities.

DM Thomas Foundation for Young People is committed to transforming the lives of sick, disabled and disadvantaged young people in communities across the UK. By providing specialist equipment and facilities, important training and support, and vital care, the Foundation works to improve the education, health and wellbeing for young people to achieve their full potential.

Through its local Giveaways, the Foundation has awarded over £390,000 to 334 charities across the UK to support their work with young people. Outdoor learning, arts and crafts materials, travel costs, sports equipment, specialist equipment, therapy and cancer care, refurbishments and resource packs have all been funded through previous Giveaways, enabling more than 73,000 young people to benefit.

The Foundation is partnering with supporters at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead to help sick, disabled and disadvantaged children and young people in the hotel’s local community.

Martin Robinson, General Manager at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead said: “Hilton Newcastle Gateshead are committed to spreading the spirit of hospitality throughout the local community with this opportunity being one of many ways in which we try and support our local area. I encourage all charities and organisations to apply to ensure we can help as many young people as possible reach their full potential.”
