From Monday 10th October the Newcastle Chronicle will begin printing The Chronicle's Wish 2016 tokens.
We're pleased to announce that we've been accepted to take part. This year they have a £25,000 cash pot to share among all the groups on the Wish list. No groups will miss out, but the bigger our share of the tokens, the bigger the slice of the cash.
This is where you come in & we need your help.

As we celebrate our second National Blood Bikes Awareness Day we focus this year on the ‘diversity’ of the work we do and the volunteers who keep us running. “We’re not just about blood!”
We start our day with a celebration. In the early hours of the morning our team out on the road hit another milestone. Our volunteers have completed 10,000 jobs since going live on 03/02/14.
Congratulations to Nikki Renton, (volunteer Bill Deacon's daughter), who ran the Edinburgh marathon and raised over £200 for us. Nikki, (in the orange vest), seen here at mile 14. She crossed the finish line in 4:34hrs.
Yesterday Peter Robertson, our Chair, was invited to collect a £5,000 cheque from the ladies of the Inner Wheel District 3. Many thanks to the group who chose us as their charity of the year.
