Our Mission ...

Who have we helped?

When ordinary people get together, extraordinary things can happen! To date we have raised over £1 million. These are some of the places we have been able to provide medical aid:

Who are we?

MASH is made up of local people in Newcastle from all walks of life, including the medical professions, who first got together in 1992 to raise money to send essential equipment and much-needed medicines to charities working with those in most need at home and abroad, regardless of race or religion.

Where does our funding come from?

Because we work in partnership with communities with whom we have personal contact, every penny we raise goes directly to those who need it. We raise funds by canvassing local businesses and organising FUNdraising events, we have an exciting annual programme including:

and much more, to keep funds coming in, to keep our profile up and to encourage people to get involved.

MASH in the future

We want to maintain the momentum and so much more could be done to make our world a more hopeful place.

We can only help if you do!

Together we can make it happen

We are often asked to help with special projects and, although we are only a small charity, we will do our best to help where we can. Please let us know about those in need, wherever they are.

Any help, ideas and contributions you can offer, however small, will make a BIG difference.
