NE6 have helped raise over 4 tonnes of food to aid our regional food banks at Christmas

NE6 teamed up with Andrew Smith, and staff at the Staiths Cafe in Dunston to try and achieve something special this Christmas.

Within three weeks we have helped raise awareness about the spectacular work done by volunteers at our Food Banks.

With the help and support of friends, family and colleagues, over 20 shopping trips to the supermarket, we are extremely proud to say we have raised over 4 tonnes of food for vulnerable families this Christmas.
