Adderstone Foundation campaigned to raise as much money for the Chronicle Sunshine Fund Go Banana’s appeal during summer 2016.
In total, staff from Adderstone Group raised an impressive £530 from a mixture of events including, wear yellow to work day, an 'Adderstone Bake Off' and a treasure hunt through the streets of Newcastle.
The charity provides specialised equipment to children with disabilities in the North East of England and was founded in 1928.
On 17th June, it was dress down day in the office, everyone wore yellow and donated towards the cause.
Everyone across the company made a massive effort and produced an amazing selection of cakes and brownies for the company’s first ever ‘Bake off’. They were all delicious and this event helped raise a large part of the overall amount.

Staff at Adderstone Group also took part in a charity treasure hunt throughout Newcastle. Everyone donated five pounds to take part and the event was a great success.
The £530 raised went towards Aaron Armstrong, who was born with an extremely rare condition called Chromosone 8p deletion. He is one of just a handful of youngsters in the world with the genetic disorder which causes development delay including growth, heart and facial defects.
The money raised by Adderstone Foundation enabled him to get his specialist kitten trike, this will help boost his development and will enable him and his family to have some outdoor fun.
The team at Adderstone Group were lucky enough to have a special visit from Aaron this summer and everyone highlighted that it was an absolute pleasure to meet him, he was very charming and confident. The whole team are delighted that the fundraising means he now has his trike and will be able to enjoy cycle rides with his parents.
The Chronicle Sunshine Fund raised over £60,000 in total in June. A fantastic achievement for some very special local familes.
