The communities of the North East really are at the heart of all we do and we rely solely on the generosity of local individuals, groups and communities to support us in our fundraising.

Fundraising in your community for The Chronicle Sunshine Fund is an incredible way to raise funds, awareness and additional support for the charity. Not to mention it's fun!

From back packs and collection cans to bake sales and family fun days, we love it all! Find out how you local community can support below...

Collection Box

We're always on the lookout for new homes for our collection boxes and contactless donation boxes. If you can offer or find a home for a collection box in you local shop, business or group, we'd love to hear from you!



Time is once of the greatest gifts of all, could you donate your time and volunteer with us?


Charity of the Year

Charity of the Year partnerships come in all shapes in sizes, from supermarket token schemes to annual fundraising pledges!

If your organisation promotes a Charity of the Year program, please get in touch and let us know how to apply. Or if you can apply on our behalf, please feel free to request additional information to support your nomination.

Hold your own event!

We love nothing more than hearing what our supporters across the North East are doing to support us so please do get in touch if you plan to hold your own event!

From bake sales to balls, dress down days to family fun days, we love them all and are always just a phone call away should you need any support or guidance.

We have a little cupboard packed with fundraising supplies so please let us know should you wish to use any collection buckets, banners, t-shirts or sashes for your event.

As we're such a small team, it is sometimes hard to attend every one of our supporter events however we will always do our best to send a representative along if you let us know details in advance.
