Welcome to chART! Watch this space for the latest about our activities and events.

Ladies & Gentlemen.....We gave you a sneak peek at this amazing guitar signed by our very good friends Nickelback a few days ago (see it again in our gallery HERE).  It’s now live for a 10 day auction so get your bids on to have a chance of giving it a new home. The guys had an awesome meet & greet with 5 super fans from Claire House Children's Hospice in Liverpool and we have decided that all funds raised from this auction will be donated to Claire House Children’s Hospice.
Please share and please dig deep.

chART are announced as a sponsor for the Great North Snowdogs Project!

chART have kindly donated the Snowdog they are sponsoring to St Oswald's Hospice, Newcastle

St. Oswald's was the first hospice which chART worked with in 2011. Since then, our support has included funding family fun days, theatre visits, the provision of art and crafts supplies, musical instruments, cinema vouchers, a Beamz interactive music system, books, films and toys.

"In recognition of their outstanding work, we are proud to be St. Oswald's sponsor for the Great North Snowdogs campaign. It is our privilege to be part of such a significant event, which will result in increased public awareness and funds for the hospice. It will also help to raise chART's profile and fund-raising potential. We are delighted to be involved in working alongside St. Oswald's in such a huge and exciting community project, which will bring the region's rich culture and amazing artistic talent to the entire North East of England!"

- Carol Bromley, Co-Founder, Trustee & Secretary, chART

We'd like to add a big thanks to our very own Suzanne Price and Sue Ashcroft for organising the signings, and Jo Gosling for doing a sterling job sharing,as always.
