Fundraise for Changing Lives

The people who use our services can sometimes feel that they have a mountain to climb, so it is apt that some of our supporters do just that to help them.

Mountain climbers, marathon runners, abseilers, sleepout CEOs… anyone who takes on a trial to support Changing Lives stands shoulder to shoulder with our clients and gives them courage to continue with their own personal challenge.

They also provide vital funds that enrich our services and help us to reach out to more people.

Spaces are limited so reserve your place today!

Upcoming Events


Blackfriars Charity Banquet

12th October

An absolute must for fans of fine food, the annual Blackfriars Charity Banquet is dining with a difference.

Hosted by the renowned Blackfriars Restaurant, and held in their breath-taking medieval banqueting hall, this charity lunch supports a local organisation making a big difference to the lives of vulnerable people in the community.

Creatively crafted from in-date surplus food collected by Fareshare North East, this three-course feast is prepared to Blackfriars’ exacting standards. Members of Changing Lives’ Employability Team will be working closely with FareShare volunteers to help them rise to the challenge of preparing and serving you the food for the banquet.

Expect exciting cuisine and spectacular surroundings; all whilst helping combat hunger, food poverty and food waste in the North East.
