A fantastic visitors centre, collection of works, and archives. All ran by brilliant people. And how amazing to have a National Centre here in Newcastle.

I'm so pleased and proud to support the fundraising efforts for Life Changing Stories. This important project, with the ambition of sharing the magic of Seven Stories with more children with additional needs, is such a worthy cause. Good luck with the fundraising!

I am very pleased to support this project. I know a number of children who have learning difficulties and who gain a great deal from, and thoroughly enjoy, visits to Seven Stories. This project will enable you to reach more disabled children and enable them to gain even more from each visit.

Such a great cause to share the magic of Seven Stories with children with additional needs. Good luck raising the target to make this happen! #lifechangingstories
