Find out more about the Sunshine Fund


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.


Our office is in the city centre, we are situated within ncjMedia offices on Groat Market, Newcastle upon Tyne. We have four members of staff and a number of volunteers that help and support our work, we could not manage with out you all, thank you!


Our board of Trustees are seven professionals from the region that steer the charity and dedicate time to make sure the children are supported and provided with specialised equipment.
