Search has been nominated by our local Sainsbury’s in Denton Burn. We are in competition with two other charities to become their very prestigious ‘Charity of the Year’. Search is dependent on direct donations from the public to provide much needed support for lonely and disadvantaged, older people in the west of Newcastle. Winning the Sainsbury’s vote could really help the Margaret’s and John’s that need us.

What you can do is mosey over to www.sainsburyslocalcharity.co.uk and then scroll down the page and
1. Write ‘Denton Burn’ into the box that says, “Search stores”,
2. Then click select under ‘Denton Burn Whickham view local’
3. FINALLY (honestly) Click vote under ‘Seach’


I know, I know, Sainsbury’s have spelt our name wrong but please click Vote ‘Seach’ and you will make the magic happen! Last year one chap said in passing while on the trip to Seahouses that he hadn't left the west of Newcastle for 20 years.

With all the Summer trips and activities you have been waiting for. Also news on new people at Search, lunch clubs in the west of Newcastle and help with money.

As many of you might know Dee Johnson retired from Search earlier this month after 18 years helping older people at Search. Over the years she has supported thousands to receive their proper benefits in old age. There was a party at St James Church on April 3 to thank Dee for all her amazing work. Dee was presented with a bouquet of flowers from the Lord Mayor Hazel Stephenson who is also a Councillor for Benwell.

Music is provided by the Deadly Ernest Band and will begin 7.30 pm at Tyneside Irsish Centre in Gallowgate.
