Event Details

This year’s awards ceremony will be held at The Hilton Newcastle Gateshead (NE8 2AR) on Friday 29th September.

The evening will commence at 6pm with a drinks reception, with guests seated for dinner at 7pm.

By donating to a charity you hold the power to transform lives, uplift communities, and create a brighter future for those in need. This is why, each year during our awards evening we champion one local charity, a charity which is helping to support the people of our region during one of the most difficult time in their lives.

This year we have chosen to offer our support to the Children's Heart Unit Fund (CHUF). We hope that with your help that throughout the night we are able to raise as much as we can for this fantastic local charity.

Donations will be taken via cash, card or via a dedicated JustGiving page.
