Charity of the Year

In July last year Byron Place lost a very special lady from the team, Alex Cloete.
Alex had worked as a Centre Support Assistant since the centre opened in 2007 and was known and loved by so many people. On the day Alex was taken ill the Great North Air Ambulance Service were called to assist, their medical team fought endlessly to save Alex. It came as a great shock to everyone when she sadly lost her life.

In memory of Alex, the team at Byron Place have decided to nominate Great North Air Ambulance Service as their Charity of the Year. We will be raising funds through a variety of ways in 2020 from bucket collections at our Kids Club events, Honesty Library donations and other fund raising events organised by the staff at the centre.

As of December 2021 we have raised £5254.

All monies raised will be donated to help GNAAS achieve their goal of raising an additional £310,000 so they can provide 24/7 service in North East. You can find out more by clicking the link to read their fundraising blog –
