Newcastle United Foundation shortlisted for Charity of the Year at North East Charity Awards 2021

Newcastle United Foundation have been named as Charity of the Year finalists at the prestigious North East Charity Awards 2021.

The official charity arm of Newcastle United has been shortlisted for the top accolade following a year like no other for the Foundation that annually supports up to 66,000 people across the region.

The Foundation currently delivers 43 individual community, employability, educational and health and wellbeing projects in schools and community venues from Berwick to County Durham, as well as support from within the charity’s base at St. James’ Park.

Over the past 12 months, the Foundation has adapted its operations to continue to connect, motivate, and inspire North East communities at a critical time for many.

This work has included the delivery of 15,000 food parcels to combat holiday hunger and children missing out on free school meals, 1,421 young people taking part in free football through Kicks to reduce anti-social behaviour and 1,000 phone calls made to elderly and vulnerable Foundation participants during lockdown.

Hosted annually, the North East Charity Awards 2021 serve to recognise the hard work and innovative thinking by the region’s charities and fundraisers, increasing awareness of their causes and celebrating their commitment to others.

Their stories are amplified by award hosts, ChronicleLive, TeessideLive, The Gazette and The Journal – regional print and digital media serving the County Durham, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, and the Tees Valley areas.

A judging panel made up of key representations from the North East’s corporate and voluntary sectors will agree on award winners across 11 categories.

Newcastle United Foundation are in the running to be named Charity of the Year during a ceremony to be held at Ramside Hall Hotel on October 20, 2021. The full North East Charity Awards 2021 shortlist can be found here.
