Our Charity of the Year is chosen by Northumberland Estates staff who advocate for the causes they are passionate about. A shortlist is created, and we ask all our colleagues to vote for the charity they want to raise funds for and support throughout the year.
The successful charity is awarded a grant by the Northumberland Estates Community Fund with staff taking part in fundraising and volunteering opportunities throughout the year.
Charity of the Year 2023
The People's Kitchen aims to make life better for vulnerable people.
Life for vulnerable people can be incredibly hard. They might be sleeping rough, or recently placed in housing with no belongings, they may not have access to nutritious food or have no support system around them. The People’s Kitchen is their safe haven and a constant for people whose lives can be chaotic.
The People's Kitchen makes life on the streets a little easier by sharing hot meals and packages of clothing, toiletries, food, mobile phones and sleeping bags. They work with services to enable people to move off the streets and then provide food, furniture and bedding to those in need. They also offer friendship and professional services to improve mental well-being.
