TLW Charity Gala Dinner Success in Support of Meadow Well Connected

As Business Patrons of Meadow Well Connected, TLW Solicitors organised and hosted a Gala Dinner at Summerhill Bowling Club in Newcastle on 20th September raising a total of £2801.24 for the North Tyneside based charity.

Since becoming Patrons, TLW Solicitors were keen to put on an event like the Gala to celebrate the charity’s 25th Anniversary.

Guests enjoyed food from sustainable food initiative Ugly Duckling, entertainment from local acoustic musician Aimee Lambert and a raffle with fantastic prizes including sports tickets, food and drink vouchers and nights away.

All proceeds from ticket sales and raffle tickets went to the charity, to help deliver regular support activities in their North Shields community hub.

TLW Partners, Peter McKenna and John Burn have committed to the ongoing support of the charity’s Positive Pathways project that arranges activities and events focussed on wellbeing and reducing isolation and loneliness within the Meadow Well community. The project enables those in the community to have memorable experiences, such as trips to theme parks, the cinema, theatre and other attractions.

With TLW’s backing, including the sums raised at the Gala, Meadow Well Connected can continue to organise and deliver a wider range of activities, outbound trips and excursions, which had previously been limited due to prohibitively expensive transport costs.


Reflecting on the successful evening, TLW Partner John Burn said:

“The Gala Dinner was a huge success and credit for the event has to go to Alice French from TLW who worked tirelessly to put on such a great evening and raise a fantastic amount for Meadow Well Connected. We at TLW are delighted to have been able to help Meadow Well Connected in some small way this year.”

Meadow Well Connected’s Chair of Trustees, Brendan Austin said of the evening:

Meadow Well Connected Trustee - Brendan Austin“The event was not only a great fundraising effort by Alice and her team from TLW Solicitors, but also a really enjoyable evening. My wife and I had a memorable time.  It was also good to see how many local sponsors provided their support – a true community experience.  My sincere thanks to everyone involved and rest assured the superb amount raised will be put to very good use for the benefit of Meadow Well residents.”
