Cheryl’s Charity raises over £600k In One Year

Cheryl’s charity Cheryl’s Trust has raised over £600,000 since its launch last year.

According to official documents released by the charity, the trust which was set up by the former X Factor judge in January of last year has raised £620,889 since its official launch.

The huge amount mainly comes from the ICAP charity day, chocolate bar sales from Greggs and the official Prizeo competition.

The ICAP charity day which took place in late 2014, raised an incredible £500,000 for the charity, while the limited edition Belgian Crunch chocolate bars which were created by Cheryl raised an amazing £100,000 in just eight weeks, meaning around 2 million bars were sold in the limited time.

The £18,089 donations comes from the Prizeo competition which was launched by the singer, and allowed fans to donate to the trust in exchange for an entry into the competition which gave fans the chance to meet the star for a shopping trip.

Cheryl has now donated £500,000 to the Prince’s Trust so building can start on a multimedia youth centre in the city centre of Newcastle.
