A message from Mark Knopfler

As a Patron of Bravehearts of the North East, Mark Knopfler regularly supports the charity wherever possible. In the past he has presented Awards to children personally, invited them and their families backstage at his concerts and helped raise awareness of the charity.

Bravehearts is close to his heart, and below is a statement from the man himself.

"Over the last twenty years it's been most encouraging to see Bravehearts Of The North East go from strength to strength, since one brave youngster, 11 year-old Joanne Gillespie, wrote a book about her experiences in order to help other children.

This excellent charity has helped over 400 children and their families to date and now, with an updated website which will enable supporters to follow events and to donate online it is set to go on to even greater things.

It is an honour to have been associated with Bravehearts Of The North East for so long and wish it every success for the future.
