The Prince’s Trust Cheryl’s Trust Centre in Newcastle officially opened today, with Celebrity Ambassador Cheryl in attendance.
The new centre, which has been operating since November, is located on Blandford Square and will build on The Prince’s Trust’s existing presence in the area. It will significantly increase support for unemployed young people across the North East, connecting them with even more training opportunities and jobs.
Speaking ahead of the launch, Cheryl said: "It seems like a lifetime since I started talking about opening a centre in Newcastle with The Prince’s Trust. I cannot believe the dream is finally real.
Nick Stace, Chief Executive of The Prince’s Trust, said:
Cheryl has had a long-standing relationship with The Prince’s Trust and, in 2015, Cheryl’s Trust launched a fundraising campaign to help The Prince’s Trust open the new centre. To achieve this goal, Cheryl’s Trust worked in particular with ICAP, Quintessentially Foundation and Greggs.
