More than 1,000 families came to Blyth Market to enjoy and participate in the many activities provided free of charge during the Silx Teen Bar Youth Festival.
The superhero-themed event was opened by Channy, Young Ambassador for the NE Youth charity, who is an up-and-coming singer. She has performed with many well-known artists such as Olly Murs.
Attractions included face painting, a climbing wall, laser tag, a smoothie bike, inflatable fun and dance displays.
A total of £260 was raised for the family of Skye Aitman, who sadly died a couple of weeks ago. She was a member of the youth club.
Silx Teen Bar senior youth worker Jackie Long said the team would like to thank everyone who donated at the event.
She added: “It was a brilliant day and I’m grateful to everyone who took part in the event and all the staff at Silx for their efforts.
“A big thank-you also to Channy for opening the event – she was fantastic.”
Channy said she was ‘proud to be a part of the festival’ and praised the Silx team as she knows how hard it is behind the scenes to organise these types of events.
