IS IT A BIRD?? IS IT A PLANE?? NO ITS A FLYING CEO!!
On the 5th April our Chief Executive, Phil McGrath, leaped off the Stadium of Light attached to a zip wire 150ft off the ground - arriving, in fancy dress, at a shipyard on the banks of the river Wear - all to raise much needed resources for the Cedarwood Trust, North East Autism Society and the Foundation of Light.

Claire Wilkinson, Office Manager for the Cedarwood Trust (a Community Development Charity based on the Meadow Well Estate), has reached the final of the Charity Staff and Volunteer Awards 2013. Claire was nominated by the Trust for her dedication and hard work, particularly through uncertain and tough times for the charity.
Claire's nomination is testiment to her resilience and has been fully supported by the Trust's Team Leader, Phil McGrath. "Claire has been an invaluable member of the staff team", said Phil "her commitment to the Trust and the support that she has given to me, in my new role as Team Leader, has been fantastic. Claire's colleagues are extremely appreciative of the support that she has given them, in quiet, understated ways and this nomination is a small token of thanks for providing that."

We are all in this together – and we are glad you are visiting the Cedarwood Trust website. This is our online meeting place, where we organize our activities, share ideas, and publicize our mission to the people of the Meadow Well.
The Cedarwood Trust is a community development charity working on the Meadow Well Estate of North Tyneside a community full of untapped energy and creativity which is hampered by the levels of poverty and income deprivation it experiences. We believe that the community have the resources themselves to make a lasting difference and we work to raise confidences and aspirations in order to change lives.
The Meadow Well Estate is often seen, from the outside, in negative terms, particularly relating to income deprivation and poverty - these are major challenges for us all at the Cedarwood Trust but we aim to also celebrate all that is good within the Meadow Well Estate.
We work together to make our cause known, to reach out to other groups who share our vision. Whether you’re ready to lend a hand at one of our activities or have photos or articles to share about a recent event, here’s the place to do it.
Whether you are a lifetime advocate of the Cedarwood Trust on the Meadow Well Estate or new to our cause, we invite you to join us. We welcome new ideas and value enthusiasm from members and volunteers, new and old.
Our Volunteer Induction Programme is ready to begin and we welcome residents of the Meadow Well Estate and those from outside of the Estate to join us in tackling those issues that reduce potentials for the users of the Cedarwood Trust. If you would like to get involved in volunteering then please give us a call on 0191 2590245.
