Cheryl ’s Trust

NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, U K (chroniclelive.co.uk) - Geordie sweetheart Cheryl has thanked her fans as it was announced she is set to open a centre for disadvantaged young people in Newcastle this summer.

The 33-year-old singer’s charity Cheryl’s Trust, in conjunction with The Prince’s Trust, will open the as-yet-unnamed centre on Blandford Square, Newcastle.

The singer tweeted to thank her fans and said she is ready to start “changing lives” with the project which will focus on getting young people into work.

She said: “I am so happy and excited to tell you all that after a two year mission we have finally found a centre in the heart of Newcastle .

“Part of me is still pinching myself! I wanted to say a personal thank you to each and every one of you that got involved and donated money and time over the years to help me get this off the ground.

“Thank you thank you thank you! I am eternally grateful. Here’s to changing lives, I love you.”

The new centre will build on The Prince’s Trust’s existing presence in the area and significantly increase support for unemployed young people across the North East, connecting them with even more training opportunities and jobs.

Despite a jet-setting lifestyle which has seen the beauty travel around the world, Cheryl said she was proud to call Newcastle her hometown.

She said: “I’m so happy and excited that the Newcastle centre is finally coming to life. I am incredibly proud to call Newcastle my hometown and it’s important to me to be able to do my bit to help the young people in the area.

“No young person should be held back by their circumstances, this new centre will transform thousands of young lives by teaching skills, developing confidence and moving young people into education, work or training.”

Dame Martina Milburn DCVO CBE, chief executive at The Prince’s Trust, said the project will tackle long term unemployment as the North East has one of the highest rates of youth unemployment in the UK.

She added: “We are very grateful to Cheryl for her long-standing and active commitment to The Prince’s Trust.

“The opening of the new centre is certainly an achievement to be celebrated.

“The centre will enable us to support over 5000 young people in the next three years and grow delivery of all our programmes.”

Cheryl has been working with The Prince’s Trust for five years and launched her fundraising campaign in 2015.

In May last year Cheryl made her red-carpet debut with boyfriend Liam Payne of One Direction fame as she was awarded The Philanthropist Award at the Global Gift Gala in Paris.
