We love making friends! Traditional corporate and charity partnerships are changing and businesses are looking for new ways to engage with charities that not only support the charity but enhance the business too.


Charities are looking for partnerships which have long term benefits, lasting way beyond the giant cheque, and that's where Sunshine Partners comes in! They are our ambassadors in the business community introducing TCSF to their networks and audiences, helping us achieve our charitable objectives and reach our fundraising targets through their continued support. In recognition of our Sunshine Partners dedication we host quarterly networking events, can provide a range of materials to use proudly displaying your commitment to the charity and offer a range of benefits suited to your bespoke needs. 


A Sunshine Partner is an extension of our team, we couldn't provide specialist equipment to the hundreds of children we support each year without them.


Our Charity Director Siobhan would love to have a friendly chat over the phone or face to face to discuss Sunshine Partners and how it could benefit your organisation...

“For the staff at Stagecoach North East in Newcastle, The Chronicle Sunshine Fund is a charity close to their hearts and when you see the support the children and families receive, it just makes it all so worthwhile, knowing how our fundraising has helped children with disabilities so close to home.”

Steve Walker, Managing Director, Stagecoach North East

Our friends at Stagecoach North East have been a phenomenal support to the charity after pledging to adopt us as their official charity partner.

Their drivers raised a whopping £6,673 for us in Christmas 2018 when drivers dressed up on their bus runs to rasie funds and decked out a bus as Santa's Grotto.

In 2019 they were proud sponsors of our annual Sunshine Run 5k and even officially announced the partnership by placing vinyl stickers on a fleet of over 300 North East buses!

Gainford Group have been huge supporters of The Chronicle Sunshine Fund for many years now and we have been fortunate enough work alongside them as the official charity partner for Miss Newcastle for 4 years.

In 2019, the Miss Newcastle finalists alongside Gainford Group raised a sensational £30,087. completely smashing their 2018 fundraising total of £20,000. 

They generously support us throughout the year with other events and appeals and donate fabulous raffle and auction prizes, enabling us to raise more funds.


Newcastle's branch of Handelsbanken nominated TCSF as their charity of the year in 2018 and 2019.

In 2018 they smashed their target and raised over £5,00 by hosting some very creative fundraisers including a sponsored boardroom cycle to Sweden plus a 5 a side World Cup tournament recruiting some great corporate teams to take part.

This year they have already hosted a speed quiz and have some pretty exciting plans to hit their new £5,000 target!
