Following a very generation contribution from Lord Beecham we decided to produce a short 2 minute film to show people the work Search does and how we might be able to help. Lots of older people and their relatives aren't aware of the groups, advice and support available at Search on their own doorsteps. So we hit upon the idea of a video that shows Search through the eyes of someone passing our office on Adelaide Terrace and taking a look inside.

Go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mq4CaHcr73c and check it out for yourself. You might recognise some familiar faces.

 

It is time to celebrate our achievements and enjoy a dance

Join us at St James on Benwell Lane for a once a year look at what Search has been up to and share your thoughts on future plans and ideas. We will begin with lunch and then an afternoon tea dance,1940s style and chat with new and old friends. Feel free to dress up in your 1940’s finest attire. 

This is your opportunity to tell us what you think about Search’s work, ideas for the future and dance! 

12.30pm to 3pm. Booking essential 0191 273 7443

 

 

Bring your friends and get on down to what promises to be the best night of the Summer. Make a date in your diary for Monday 17 July from 6 to 9 pm at the Robert Stewart Memorial Hall on Wingrove Road, where the number 12 bus stops right

As many of you might know Dee Johnson retired from Search earlier this month after 18 years helping older people at Search. Over the years she has supported thousands to receive their proper benefits in old age. There was a party at St James Church on April 3 to thank Dee for all her amazing work. Dee was presented with a bouquet of flowers from the Lord Mayor Hazel Stephenson who is also a Councillor for Benwell.

After a public competition Search has won the title of Sainsbury's charity of the year for their Denton Burn branch close to where Search is based. We are very excited at the prospects of raising awarenes of the needs of older people in the west of Newcastle. It's going to be fun to be working in partnership with Sainsbury's to raise funds and support to change the lives older people. We are planning lots of events and activities to make the most of this great opportunity, stay tuned for more news.

Search has been nominated by our local Sainsbury’s in Denton Burn. We are in competition with two other charities to become their very prestigious ‘Charity of the Year’. Search is dependent on direct donations from the public to provide much needed support for lonely and disadvantaged, older people in the west of Newcastle. Winning the Sainsbury’s vote could really help the Margaret’s and John’s that need us.

What you can do is mosey over to www.sainsburyslocalcharity.co.uk and then scroll down the page and
1. Write ‘Denton Burn’ into the box that says, “Search stores”,
2. Then click select under ‘Denton Burn Whickham view local’
3. FINALLY (honestly) Click vote under ‘Seach’


I know, I know, Sainsbury’s have spelt our name wrong but please click Vote ‘Seach’ and you will make the magic happen! Last year one chap said in passing while on the trip to Seahouses that he hadn't left the west of Newcastle for 20 years.
