NUF Awarded Grant By The Children’s Foundation

Newcastle United Foundation has been awarded a grant by The Children’s Foundation to support our Cerebral Palsy Football provision.

The Children’s Foundation, based in Newcastle, but working across the North East and Cumbria, raises money through a range of fundraising events and partnerships with organisations and companies in the region – and this money is used to improve the physical and mental health of children and young people in the region affected by Cerebral Palsy.

The £1000 donation to Newcastle United Foundation will support Football For All’s Cerebral Palsy Football sessions and will pay for venue hire, coach time, travel and equipment.

Reggie Dornan, from Newcastle United Foundation said: “This grant from The Children’s Foundation means we can sustain and continue our existing weekly Cerebral Palsy Football Club.

“Additionally it will help support a new Frame Football Club we have just started on Saturday morning for younger children with cerebral palsy. Many of the children in both groups get so much from the sessions – it’s a highlight of their week – and it’s so important they continue with it.”

Nicola Crawford, Director of Operations for The Children’s Foundation explains:  “Since the Regional Grants Panel was established in 1993, over £275,000 has been awarded to 327 community projects, impacting more than 51,000 children. Without the financial support of The Children’s Foundation, these groups would struggle to find the funding they need to meet the individual needs of disadvantaged or disabled young people in the North East and North Cumbria.”
