Deeds not Words

A group of Ladies from the TCR Hub enjoyed a lunch at Wynyard Hall last week.

Organised by County Durham Community Foundation (CDCF) the event followed the theme of Deeds not Words and celebrated the actions of women who have changed their communities and the society beyond. The hotel hosted more than 160 ladies from a wide range of charitable organisations based within County Durham and Tees Valley, many of which had received funding from CDCF.

Our group included CEO Rachel, Reception Manager Vicky, Volunteer Clare and Partner Organisation Rachel Dyne, Operations Director for the YMCA. The ladies were treated to a fizz reception followed by a two course meal in the stunning Conservatory. Host Caroline Theobald CBE did a fabulous job of chatting to some of the charities who have received support from CDCF, including the TCR Hub and keeping order across the afternoon.

Our ladies were thrilled to be invited to talk about the work of the Hub and their plans for 2020. Our CEO Rachel says ‘We were honoured to be asked to share some of our story with such a fantastic audience. To be in a room with so many worthy causes was humbling but comforting to know that we are not alone in striving to make a difference to our communities’.
