Matt Beeton, CEO of Port of Tyne visited our Connected Kids Club recently to share the great news that Port of Tyne would be sponsoring holiday activities during 2019.

Mandi Cresswell, Chief Officer at Meadow Well Connected said: “Every year we struggle to provide enough holiday activities but we always have a high demand from local families, particularly those who are working.

“The support from the Port of Tyne will make a positive impact, enriching the lives of over 100 disadvantaged children and young people in North Tyneside.”

Matt Beeton, Chief Executive Officer, Port of Tyne said: “The Port of Tyne is delighted to support Meadow Well Connected, to deliver an enriched programme of activities supporting families and children in the heart of our operating area at North Tyneside enabling them to thrive.”

Matt thoroughly enjoyed his visit, throwing himself into the craft activities and playing football in the community garden.
