We had a fantastic time at our Sandcastle Ball at Crowne Plaza on Friday, sponsored by Robertson.  Thank you to everyone who came on the night, donated prizes and supported us.  BBC Look North presenter, Jeff Brown, was our amazing host and did a great Q&A with rugby player Alex Tait from Newcastle Falcons.  Also a HUGE thanks to our wonderful volunteers who helped the night run so smoothly.

We were delighted to hand our Sandcastle Trophy to the overall winner of July's Sandcastle Challenge, Mott MacDonald, who partnered with Pelton, Chester-le-Street's Roseberry Primary School.  Our runner up trophies went to Napper Architects, Tesco Bank, Esh Stantec and Gateshead College.

Our Sandcastle Events raised a fantastic £21,000 (net) for children and young people across the North East, so a BIG thank you for helping to change lives!
