The UK200Group is very proud to announce that two charities have been chosen to benefit from our Annual Conference this year in Newcastle. Suggested by Newcastle based UK200Group member firm Robson Laidler; The Chronicle Sunshine Fund, and Metro Radio Cash for Kids, both help children in the North-East area.

UK200Group is the UK’s leading association of independent chartered accountancy and law firms, with connections around the world. The association brings together around 150 member offices in the UK with more than 500 partners who represent c150,000 SME business clients and with international links in nearly 70 countries.

Cash for Kids is Bauer Radio’s network of local charities, which operate across 22 areas around the UK. Their mission is to respond to the needs of children in local communities, and they aspire to enable all children to live life to the full and achieve their individual potential. All the money raised on behalf of Cash for Kids stays in the area it was raised in, helping local children and young people who are suffering from abuse or neglect, who are disabled and have special needs or who simply need extra care or guidance.

Dan Slee, Metro Radio Cash for Kids Manager said; “Cash for Kids are delighted to be one of the beneficiaries of the UK200Group Annual Conference. Fundraising at such events is important to the charity with the money going to support local disabled and disadvantaged children right here in the North East. We thank UK200Group for choosing Cash for Kids and wish them lots of luck with their Conference.”

The Chronicle Sunshine Fund provides specialised equipment to children with disabilities in the North East of England, individuals, groups, registered organisations, special and mainstream schools and hospitals can ask for our support to improve the lives of children with disabilities. The Chronicle Sunshine Fund was founded in 1928 by King George V; he came to Newcastle to open the Tyne Bridge, while he was here he donated £15 to give underprivileged children a day out to the coast, the Chronicle adopted the idea of giving to children in the area and the Chronicle Sunshine Fund was established.

Lauren Thompson, Community Fundraiser The Chronicle Sunshine Fund said; "We are delighted that the UK200Group have chosen to support The Chronicle Sunshine Fund! As a small local charity, it is incredible for us to raise awareness and raise funds with North East organisations at the Annual Conference."

Declan Swan, UK200Group CEO said; “The UK200Group and its members are looking forward to supporting two such worthwhile charities. The invaluable support they offer children in the Newcastle area makes a difference to so many lives.”

The conference takes place on the 15th, 16th and 17th of November at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead. Delegates from around the world will come together to cover topics including Brexit, Digitalisation, Futureproofing and Immigration.
