Cheryl is returning home to Newcastle next year to open her Cheryl’s Trust building in the city centre.
A date has been set for the opening of The Prince’s Trust and Cheryl’s Trust centre – February 20, 2018, with Cheryl in attendance.
“It seems like a lifetime since I started talking about opening a centre in Newcastle with The Prince’s Trust,” said Cheryl, who grew up in Heaton.
“I cannot believe the dream is finally real. Getting to this stage hasn’t been easy but we did it.
“I want to thank every single person and company that has helped me reach this milestone. Without all the support and help along the way I would never have been able to get here. My heart if so full of pride, love and hope.”
The opening was announced on Wednesday evening at The Prince’s Trust and TK Maxx & Homesense Awards, which were held at the Discovery Museum, in Newcastle.
The new centre is located on Blandford Square, Newcastle. Staff will move in this month, but the official launch will be next February. The centre will build on The Prince’s Trust’s existing presence in the area and significantly increase support for unemployed young people across the North East, connecting them with even more training opportunities and jobs.
Nick Stace, CEO of The Prince’s Trust said: “We are very grateful to Cheryl and proud of all that she has done to support The Prince’s Trust. The new centre will enable us to support over 5,000 young people in the next three years and grow delivery of all our programmes. It’s a huge achievement and we look forward to celebrating, when we officially open the centre in February.”
