Newcastle United Foundation Celebrates International Women’s Day

Newcastle United Foundation celebrated International Women’s Day by donning purple and heading out for a lunchtime walk in Leazes Park. 

On International Women’s Day itself (Sunday 9 March), Health and Wellbeing Project Manager Charlotte Dodson attended the ‘Newcastle Girls Can’ launch event at the Civic Centre to celebrate Sport England and Active Newcastle’s campaign to encourage more women and girls to participate in sport and physical activity. 

In a bid to raise awareness of International Women’s Day, the ‘This Girl Can’ campaign is to encourage incorporating regular physical activity into their working day, Foundation staff were invited to wear the cause colour, purple, and to participate in a health walk around Leazes Park on Monday lunchtime. 

Charlotte recently joined the Foundation to increase the remit of Health and Wellbeing Projects within the city, focusing on reducing obesity and reducing stigma around men’s health and mental health.

The Foundation works with many schools in and around the city, spreading health messages to the young people of Newcastle and now future projects will be encouraging adults to follow the lead set out by the city’s youngsters. 

Charlotte said:

“It’s been great to raise awareness of three initiatives that complement one another so well. 

“Celebrating International Women’s Day with Sport England and Active Newcastle on Sunday highlighted the importance of women engaging in physical activity so today it was great to go out for a walk with colleagues, male and female, to highlight the cause.”
