Gordon Hull, from County Durham, became a regular giver because he wanted to know his donations were going to make a difference here in the region in which he lives.
“I’d seen a number of local and national news stories about suicides amongst young people and it was really brought home to me when two young people from my own and nearby village in County Durham took their own lives,” Gordon said.
“I decided to look into charities that help young people with mental health problems and I came across Children North East. I thought it sounded a more local charity that was doing a lot to help prevent youngsters reaching rock bottom.
Gordon began by becoming a fundraiser and, being a keen walker, he took on the ‘Everest Anywhere’ Challenge for us in 2019, following this up with the 26.2 Challenge during Lockdown in 2020 to coincide with the cancelled London Marathon and then this year’s Hadrian’s Wall Virtual Challenge.
“However, I was conscious that these were just ‘one-offs’ and as I wanted to really make sure there was something much more regular going towards the charity’s work, I decided to become a regular giver.
“I’m confident the money is well spent as I receive the monthly newsletter which keeps me up to date with all the latest projects going on. It’s a really good feeling to know my donations are going to help children and young people in the region I know and love.”
