Three charities had a great end to 2017 as they received a major funding boost from Primula Cheese.
Northumbria Blood Bikes was awarded £15,000 towards the cost of a new bike that will be used daily to help provide its service – carrying urgent blood or medical supplies to facilities across the North East.
A total of £25,000 was donated to Daft As A Brush Cancer Patient Care (DAAB).
This money will help provide new specialist transport vehicles for DAAB. They will be equipped with essential equipment including side steps for ease of entry.
Cedars Academy provides learners with more opportunities for work experience placements. It received £10,000.
The funds came from The Kavli Trust, the charitable trust that owns Primula Cheese and donates profits from sales of Primula and other Kavli products to good causes.
