Newcastle Airport launches charity venture

Newcastle Airport launches charity ventureLast week, a team of workers from Newcastle Airport kicked off a series of events to raise money for the National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC)

The group wore Roman costumes and promised to trek more than 80 miles across Hadrian's Wall with the intention of hitting a target of £30,000 for the charity.

This venture is being held as part of Make A Difference, a development programme being held by Newcastle Airport for a year.

As part of this, the team, which includes a media executive, a management accountant, an energy and sustainability specialist, an airport duty manager, two fire watch managers and an airport planner, will work on several challenges.

Dave Laws, the airport's chief executive, said: "Customers will see the team as they travel during the summer – do talk to them about how we are doing and how you can get involved. We encourage all to show their generosity and see how they can make a difference."

In February this year, two students left Newcastle Airport on a charity venture which saw them travelling as far as possible for free to raise funds for jailbreak, reported.
