There are three Ukraine families and one Afghan family benefitting from the CCCT. Seventeen people in all. Ten children aged 4-17 years of age. The CCCT provided the funds for the purchase of four newly built homes to offer sanctuary in Newcastle upon Tyne. The homes were offered ready to live in and are let at social housing rates in line with DWP guidelines. The income derived from the properties is being donated to a church in the city to facilitate its continued interest in welfare of refugees and others. The families are now settled in their new homes and schools and are appreciative of the Trusts initiative.
The funding provided by the Catherine Cookson Charitable Trust helps to deliver world-leading research in Newcastle and beyond. Our trust helps to transform lives of people facing cancer.
The Trustees of the Catherine Cookson Charitable Trust’s generous support has enabled us to begin construction of a dedicated, state-of-the-art facility for Europe’s first Institute of Immunity and Transplantation (IIT).
