Kind-hearted singer Cheryl has reportedly made a massive £500,000 donation to the Prince’s Trust charity to help disadvantaged children.
The money from Cheryl’s Trust will reportedly support the funding of a new state-of-the-art youth centre in the heart of her hometown Newcastle.
Cheryl launched her charitable foundation with the Prince’s Trust in 2011 following a meeting with HRH Charles, Prince of Wales.
Back in February, the 33-year-old tweeted: “I am so happy and excited to tell you all that after a 5 year relationship with @PrincesTrust and a 2 year mission along with Cheryl’s Trust we have finally found a centre in the heart of Newcastle that will be opened this summer! Part of me is still pinching myself!”
New mum Cheryl – who recently welcomed her first child Bear with One Direction singer Liam Payne – went on to extend her wholehearted gratitude to those who have supported her charity along the way.
“I wanted to say a personal thank you to each and every one of you that got involved and donated money and items/your time over the years to help me get this off the ground,” she added.
“Thank you thank you thank you! And for your continued love and support, I am eternally grateful. Here’s to changing lives. I love you.”
The Mirror reports other donors to Cheryl’s Trust include Greggs – who made a contribution of £100,000 in 2015 – and TP Icao (formerly ICAP), with Michael Spencer’s stockbroking company giving £500,000 in 2015.
These generous donations will no doubt go a long way in supporting the build and maintenance of the youth centre in the northeast region.
Fantastic work, everyone!
