All aboard our Key Community Bus!


We rely heavily on the support of local people and its fantastic that so many of you want to get onboard and help fund our vital work to prevent youth homelessness and alleviate poverty in South Tyneside.

From running a half marathon or climbing a virtual mountain, to organising a table top sale or non-uniform day, there are all sorts of ways you can help us make a difference in South Tyneside … and have a great time doing it!

No matter how big or small your event, or how much money you raise, every penny will go towards helping local people flourish and making South Tyneside an outstanding place to live.

We’d love to hear about your event and share your efforts, and any pics, with our supporters to get you more sponsorships and inspire others.

On behalf of everyone at Key, a huge thank you for fundraising for us and good luck with your event or personal challenge!
