Our charity helps us to make even more of a difference for patients and their families. We provide things that are outside of usual NHS funding but mean so much to people - from artwork to additional equipment and much, much more.

The Trust's main charity is the South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust Charitable Funds (charity number 1052366).   

Jack and Maisie’s 100,000 step challenge in aid of South Tyneside and Sunderland hospitals.

Sunderland youngsters Jack Berry and Maisie Jones are following in the footsteps of NHS fundraising hero Captain Tom Moore by taking on their own challenge in support of their local hospitals.

Jack, 13, who is severely autistic and verbally communicates only with members of his family, was inspired by the tale of veteran Capt Tom, who originally aimed to raise just £1,000 for NHS Charities Together by completing 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday on April 30th. In fact, he has raised an incredible total in excess of £26 million.

Jack and cousin Maisie decided they wanted to do something similar to raise money for South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust’s charitable fund and came up with the idea of a 100,000-step challenge and they are each doing steps as part of their daily exercise.
