"The success of our business is inextricably linked to the success of this city and region. The opportunity to support Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums' exhibitions and events, which showcase the extraordinary diversity that the North East has to offer, enables us to promote the region and our business in a more dynamic and engaging way."
