Home Group Sponsor Foundation 10 Year Anniversary Celebration
Home Group joined the Premier League as sponsors for Newcastle United Foundation’s ’10 Year Anniversary Celebration Event’ at the House of Lords on Tuesday.
The event was hosted by Lord Beecham, with Jonathan Edwards performing the role of Master of Ceremonies.
A number of high profile guests were in attendance including representatives from the Premier League, Foundation Trustees, and Patrons Shola Ameobi and Bob Moncur.
They were joined by Foundation project participants Ally, Silke, and Chloe – who have been supported by our Community, Employability, and Disability programmes- who told their stories about how Newcastle United Foundation has positively affected their lives.
The event celebrated a decade since the Foundation began helping disadvantaged young people in the North East – raising more than £13.5 million in our 10 years.
Kate Bradley, Head of Newcastle United Foundation, said: ‘For the last ten years the Foundation have been using football as a means to touch the lives of thousands of participants who benefit from our projects.’
‘Last year alone more than 50,000 people were directly impacted by one of our programmes. This event is a celebration of how far we have come, but it’s also a chance to reflect on our plans for the future and how we can continue to help more people in our region.’
‘I’d also like to say a massive thank you to Home Group and the Premier League who’s support has made this celebration possible.’
Chief Executive of Home Group, Mark Henderson, added: ‘Home Group is a social enterprise and a charity and one of the UK’s largest providers of high quality housing and integrated housing, health and social care. The work we do is very complementary to that of the Newcastle United Foundation and that is why we are delighted to be associated with this special event.’
