The North East Charity Awards has become a highlight of the North East's events calendar

 

The North East Charity Awards celebrate and recognise the work of our North East charities and social enterprises, together with the businesses and individuals that support them. They deserve it – now more than ever.

Building on the huge success of the last six years of these high-profile awards, we awarded winners across all ten of the usual award categories, plus an additional new category, in a special Awards Evening held on 20th October 2021 at Ramside Hall Hotel in Durham.

The Awards are designed to recognise the hard work and innovative thinking by our local charities and individual fundraisers, increase awareness of our local charities, celebrate those who work tirelessly to support the many good causes in our region and also celebrate the local businesses and individuals who help support the work of our charities.
