The committee at The Stephen Carey Fund HQ has begun what they describe as their busiest time since launching the charity.
This week alone, they have met potential supplier as they keep abreast of developments in the market, prepared and submitted an application for official charity places in the Great North Run 2015 and this evening, they are on the road to their second award ceremony within the space of a few weeks.
While the team didn’t collect the Safer Community award at the recent Best of Northumberland event, they will be hoping for better fortune as they attend the Newcastle Building Society Cornerstone of the Community event.
The fund has been nominated for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation Team Award, which recognises local groups who have worked together to make a positive difference within the area they live.
David Wilson, the Fund’s communications manager, said: “We really did enjoy being part of the Best of Northumberland event and what came unexpectedly was how the event re-energised the whole team.”
