Charity Partners

All the money raised from the concert will go to four Yorkshire based charities, to help them with their amazing work, which benefits so many people across the East Riding - every penny will be spent in our local area, to benefit local people

Who Are We

The Tribune Trust’s principal aim is to help communities in the Humber region make their areas safer places to live and work.

Founded in 2000, we are a unique partnership between the High Sheriffs of the East Riding of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, Humberside Police and Humberside Fire & Rescue Service.

What We Do

We work closely together to ensure we focus our funds in the places they are needed the most and help communities tackle the wider social problems that lead to anti social behaviour, violence and crime.

Projects we support are usually run by fantastic volunteers working directly in the community. They do not attract mainstream funding. They help promote good citizenship, reduce crime and disorder, protect vulnerable victims, tackle drug and alcohol abuse and promote sport and active recreation.

Sadly, the Humber Region is home to some of the most deprived communities in the country. We have twice the national average of young people who are not in education, training or employment. They are vulnerable and are 70% more likely to experiment with drugs and three times more likely to offend. Many of the projects we support aim to reach these young people as early as possible, helping them to head in the right direction in life by leading more positive, healthier lifefstyles and building new skills and self confidence.

Some examples of projects we have supported in the last year include:

A sports club providing after -school sessions giving kids the facilities they need to do their homework; a charity that provides emergency accommodation with families for homeless young people; improved facilities and equipment for a boxing club; a community garden working with ex offenders to rejuvenate an area plagued by crime; summer activities for the children living in a refuge for victims of domestic violence; a project to teach young people in a deprived area to re build cycles and scooters; a Night Challenge supervising groups of young people to orienteer across the countryside at night, conducting challenges en route.

How You Can Help

All our funds come from local donations and our fund raising activities. The funds raised from the Midsummer Spectacular Event will make a massive difference to our work.

We aim to donate £70,000 to £100,000 to projects every year and it is spent exclusively in the Humber Region.

The Pandemic has meant that a lot of small projects and youth clubs had to close their doors for many months. As life gets back to ‘normal’ we are expecting many more grant applications.

Set up in the summer of 2016, WISHH is the official independent Charity of Hull Hospitals. 

Our hospitals are part of the NHS, public funding has to be spent by the trust on patient care, treatment and essential equipment.  At WISHH, we fund ‘added extras’ to enhance the experience of patients, their loved ones and visitors. 

WISHH raise funds to improve facilities at both the Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital. The primary aim of the Charity being to make the experience of patients, visitors and staff that much more pleasurable.  We achieve this by building upon and enhancing the facilities and services provided by the NHS.

We organise fundraising appeals to support specific areas of Hull Hospitals.  We also support community fundraisers, groups, businesses, schools and individuals who want to help us make a difference to Hull Hospitals.  Supporters can choose where the funds raised or donated can be used or support the hospital with general giving.

Examples of how WISHH has helped Hull Hospitals include, providing a Reminiscence Cinema for patients, enabling them to watch old films and share memories of growing up in Hull and the East Riding.  Working alongside a fundraiser, we have provided two breathing machines that saved her baby son’s life. Specialist weighing machines have been introduced at the Queen’s Centre in lieu of wedding gifts from a former patient, which provide a print out for patients’ medical records enabling nurses to prepare medication.  Additional WISHH Wheelchairs and quite rooms on wards for patients and their families have helped enhance patients’ experience across Hull Hospitals.

Funds raised from the Midsummer Spectacular Event, will enable us to brighten ward areas and quiet rooms to support the overall wellbeing of patients, and help make their stay much more comfortable whilst they are receiving hospital care.

The Driffield Agricultural Society has been at the heart of the rural community of the East Riding of Yorkshire for nearly 170 years. Ever since the Driffield and East Riding Agricultural Society organised the first annual show back in the 1850’s it has been the centrepiece for the celebration of agriculture in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Driffield Agricultural Society’s formation dates back to the ‘Age of Enlightenment’ when education was seen as a benefit to the broader population and events such as the Driffield Show were a vital vehicle for its delivery. Today the Society works with schools and other charitable bodies to promote interest in agriculture and the safe stewardship of the environment as well as to showcase the sector to the wider public.

Since March 2020 the Society have been working hard to support its local community, whilst the Showground was closed for normal activity it took on the role of the areas CV-19 Emergency Hub housing one of the first CV-19 Mobile Testing units in the county, the teams are still with us twice a week today. We also had the pleasure of housing the Love Driffield Foodbank for just short of 12 months a real pleasure to support this team of volunteers.

June 2022 sees the arrival of the Mid-Summer Spectacular Concert to the Showground and the Society are excited to be involved in this exciting event, which will benefit a quartet of local charities, exciting times ahead!

At Macmillan, we give people with cancer everything we’ve got. If you’re diagnosed, your worries are our worries. We will help you live life as fully as you can.

And we don’t stop there. We’re going all out to find ever better ways to help people with cancer, helping to bring forward the day when everyone gets life-transforming support from day one.

We’re doing whatever it takes. But without your help we can’t support everyone who needs us.

2020 was one of the toughest years in Macmillan’s 100-year history. The pandemic has led to an increased demand for our services, while at the same time we have seen our income decline due to our fundraising activities being restricted. The proportion of people living with cancer in Yorkshire is higher than almost anywhere else in England. With many cancer services facing significant challenges as a result of COVID-19, we need your help now more than ever to ensure people living with cancer get the support they need.

In response to this, Macmillan have launched the Yorkshire Appeal which aims to raise additional funds to cover our emergency response and vital services that are needed to support the 179,000 people currently living with cancer in the region.

With your help, we want to support every person in Yorkshire and East Riding affected by cancer, as well as help the NHS to diagnose people early and treat them as quickly as possible. Every donation received from the Midsummer Spectacular will stay in Yorkshire, whether that is funding critical new Macmillan professionals and nurses, delivering expert advice through the Macmillan Support Line, or providing financial support to those who need it during this pandemic.

The long-lasting impact of the coronavirus pandemic has yet to be truly felt, but the current consequences of the pandemic are impossible to ignore. We will do whatever it takes to be there for every person in East Yorkshire who needs our services, but we need your help. Your support has never mattered more. Thank you.
