The black tie event, sponsored by Nifco UK, Thirteen Group, PD Ports and Better Brand Agency, raised almost £24,000 to support the High Tide Foundation’s ongoing activities.
The evening, presented by BBC Newcastle Radio host, Alfie Joey, highlighted the great work High Tide has achieved since it was established in 2012. High Tide Chairman, Kevin Shakesheff and trustee, David Robinson, spoke about the progress of the charity so far and what is coming up in the future.
We also heard from three of the young people who’ve interacted with the Foundation over the last couple of years, who spoke about how they’d benefitted from the different schemes they’d been involved in.
Throughout the night people were entertained with music from local artists, Samantha Durnan and Andy Usher, as well as an inspiring speech from Business in the Community Chief Executive, Stephen Howard.
We’d like to thank everyone who came along on the night for their company and generosity. A fantastic night was had by all which raised a significant amount of money for the charity and paves the way for other such events in the future.
