Springfield Community Association - Benton
This community centre is used by lots of different groups and are looking to replace the roof as it is in desperate need of repair.

Charles Young Centre - South Shields
Another fabulous centre which is a real hub of the local community supported by both our South Shields and Boldon store champions Mavis and Tracey, not only did they have £1,000 to put on their annual party, their store manager Darren went along to spring a lovely extra surprise of £5,000 courtesy of the Asda Foundation. This should help towards new equipment and décor for the upstairs to create more rooms.

St Aiden’s Community Centre - Gosforth
A fabulous centre which is the real hub of the community and have users from the age of 0 - 100. The store supported again their Christmas event with a grant of £300 from the foundation, however we heard they were in need of specialist lighting for the youth theatre group and other essential items so they can do more events throughout the year, a surprise grant of £5,000 should go a long way in helping them achieve this.
