Foundation Supporter Moira Blackwood Retires
Moira Blackwood, a passionate ambassador for Newcastle United Foundation’s Disability Football for All project, has retired after 36 years in her post as a PE teacher at Collingwood SEN School.
As a huge fan and supporter of Newcastle United, and as a strong believer in the role sport can play in developing young people’s skills and confidence, Moira was always the first to sign up her school to our Disability projects.
Moira is pictured above at her last Sports Day at Collingwood SEN with Foundation Project Co-ordinator Reggie Dornan and Mark Daglish, Area Development Officer for Northumberland, who presented her with a new NUFC training top.
Reggie Dornan said: “ Moira was a great support, not only to myself over the last 4 years, but to our Foundation’s Disability football project.
“So many children have benefitted not only from her own superb work and commitment in school, but also the extra effort she put in, actually driving them to all the events herself in the school mini bus, throughout the region. She will be greatly missed, and it will be very odd not to see her at our events in the future. We would like to wish her all the very best for her retirement.
