One of the amazing families we have been able to support


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 charity was founded in 1928 by King George V, who came to Newcastle to open the Tyne Bridge. The Chronicle adopted the idea of giving to children in the area and the Chronicle Sunshine Fund was established.

“It’s hard to put into words how much we appreciate the support and how grateful we are to The Sunshine Fund”
