Sanderson Arcade Team Raise a Fantastic £5,000 for Cleaswell Hill School

18 November 2019

The team at Morpeth’s Sanderson Arcade have raised a fantastic £5,000 for local school Cleaswell Hill after organising a number of fundraising events over the last 18 months. 

The staff at the busy shopping centre selected the school as their chosen charity in 2018. 

The money they have raised will help support Cleaswell Hill, a local day community special school. The school has pupils aged 4-18 years old with a range of complex learning difficulties and disabilities. Many pupils have additional physical, medical, sensory, communication and emotional needs. 

The £5000 target was raised through last year’s Christmas Tree of Light as well as a number of special events throughout the year including a charity pub quiz, star wars 

The centre’s regular buskers have also helped to boost the fundraising as well as the Arcades key summer activities throughout July and August. 

The cheque was handed over by the Arcade team to students from Cleaswell Hill School and Lauren Caisley Fundraising coordinator from the school. 

Joel Plumley, Centre Manager at Sanderson Arcade, said: “We are delighted with the amount which has been raised we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped us to reach this target.”

The Arcade team have announced their charity for 2019/20 will be Tiny Lives. Tiny Lives helps to care for premature and sick newborn babies, their mothers and families in the Special Care baby unit at the RVI in Newcastle.
