Was this the funnest summer ever?

This summer teams across the charity have been delivering an exciting calendar of events for children, young people and families; bringing together new and existing groups for food, friendship and of course…fun! In this photo series we share some of the magical moments that have this summer so special.

A day at Tynemouth beach is a chance for some serious playtime and sweet treats. Parents, carers and little ones joined in the fun for one of the biggest beach picnics in our history!

Some our HAF group take a big leap at Shiremoor Adventure Park.

A trip to National Trust Wallington is a chance to get stuck into nature, with highlights including learning skills around the fire and… squirrel races!

For some young people, the summer started with their first ever PRIDE march (undeterred by the rain). How much do you love the banner they created?

A trip to St Mary’s Lighthouse in Whitley Bay also saw a rock pooling expedition. Shell, yeah!

Some of our allotment crew went exploring one of the North East’s biggest gardens, Gibside. Foraging and bird watching were on the agenda, with lots of inspiration to bring back to their Benwell space.
