In the wake of our spectacular Burns Night Ball on Friday 26th January, we are thrilled to announce an exciting new chapter for NE Youth as we unveil a long-term partnership with Northern Garden Sheds. This collaboration goes beyond the glitz and glamour of a memorable evening; it marks the beginning of a sustained effort to make a lasting impact on the lives of young people in our local communities.

Northern Garden Sheds has been a huge supporter of NE Youth for many years, and the Burns Night Ball served as the backdrop for the unveiling of this extended collaboration. Together, we share a common commitment to empowering young people and fostering positive change in the North East.

As part of this exciting partnership, Northern Garden Sheds has pledged to rally up support and donations on every shed sold. This innovative approach not only provides a sustainable source of funding for our local services but also turns each shed purchase into a meaningful contribution toward empowering young people in our community.

Every customer purchasing a shed from Northern Garden Sheds will now have the opportunity to contribute directly to NE Youth. During the purchase process, customers will be asked if they would like to make a voluntary donation to support our work. Northern Garden Sheds have then pledged to match these donations. This not only raises crucial funds but also creates a channel through which we can spread awareness about our organisation and our mission.

The funds generated through this initiative will play a vital role in supporting our local services, enabling us to continue empowering young people through informal education, mentorship and youth clubs. As customers become aware of the opportunity to contribute, we anticipate a ripple effect of increased awareness and support for NE Youth.

Dave Clayton, Managing Director at Northern Garden Sheds, commented on the partnership saying:

“After many years of supporting NE Youth, we feel Northern Garden sheds are now in a position to do more and give more back to our local area and NE Youth is a charity close to our heart that provide the perfect platform for this, we are excited to start this next chapter.”

This partnership is a win-win for both organisations. Northern Garden Sheds reaffirms its commitment to corporate social responsibility, while NE Youth gains a sustainable source of funding and an expanded platform for outreach. Together, we are not just selling sheds; we are building a stronger, more supportive community for future generations!
