Rockliffe Hall has linked with The High Tide Foundation as its nominated charity for 2018.

The High Tide Foundation brings together industry and education across Teesside to increase awareness of career opportunities, showcase the region’s industry and raise aspirations for young people in the Tees Valley. High Tide’s aim is to improve learning and employment opportunities whilst raising aspirations for young people across the region through their unique work experience and industry-led skills programmes.

Rockliffe Hall, in Hurworth near Darlington, hopes to help raise thousands of pounds for The High Tide Foundation through a range of events including golf days, private dining and afternoon tea events. Members of the Rockliffe Hall team will also take part in a range fundraising initiatives including the Great North Run and the Three Peaks Challenge.

In addition, on check-out, guests will be asked if they’d like to make a voluntary £1 donation to High Tide. This alone raised nearly £5000 for Daisy Chain, Rockliffe Hall’s charity partner in 2017.

Eamonn Elliott, Chief Executive at Rockliffe Hall, says: “We’re delighted to link with The High Tide Foundation for 2018. We are inundated with requests from charities to link up with them and choosing one key charity each year helps us focus our fundraising initiatives. We chose High Tide because of the charity’s dedication to the young people of the Tees Valley. They’ve been instrumental in raising aspiration and improving awareness of career opportunities across the key business sectors on Teesside, and we hope the money we raise throughout 2018 helps the organisation continue to do its inspirational work.”

Lauren Bywater, General Manager of The Hide Tide Foundation, says: “”We are delighted to be selected as the charity of choice for Rockliffe Hall. The High Tide Foundation is built on partnerships and we very much look forward to growing our relationship with the team at Rockliffe Hall. We feel this will be a great partnership as we share a very similar passion of driving forward positive change for the young people of Teesside. Our fundraising and member events, including our annual Celebration Ball, are very important to the Foundation’s growth so we’re very excited to be working with such a prestigious partner to support and host many of our 2018 events.”
