Abseil Fundraisers Surpass £10,000 Target

More than 50 adrenaline-fuelled fundraisers raised over £10,000 for Newcastle United Foundation by abseiling 130ft from the roof of St. James’ Park earlier this month.

Fundraisers from Newcastle and across the country enjoyed the views from the highest point in the stadium before abseiling to the floor in front of family and friends at the home of the Magpies. 

The event was kindly supported by volunteers Danny Wilding, Brian Mead and Angela Syverson from DWP and four of Newcastle United Foundation’s Employability participants, John Boby, Martin O’Rourke, Silke Koch and Jonathan Thompson. 

All funds raised will boost the Foundation’s health, educational and disability football projects across the North-East, which uses the power of football to engage, educated and improve lives.

Kelly Foster, Fundraising Officer at Newcastle United Foundation, said: “Our volunteers did a brilliant job on the day, keeping everyone’s spirits up at nervous moments and helping with the logistics of the event – we really appreciated each of them being so generous with their time and helping us out.

“I can’t thank our fundraisers enough for their incredible support.  I was so proud watching everyone take on the challenge.  For some people it was a case of facing their worst fear so it was a massive achievement, one that will also have a positive impact in the community, thanks to the money that they’ve raised in support of our programmes. 

“I’d also like to thank Coral for donating replica shirts for each of our fundraisers – they certainly looked the part as they took on the challenge!”
