TESTIMONIALS

I have been so impressed by the scale and impact of the work Newcastle United Foundation does in the community. Their vision for the future, building Project Pitchside just around the corner from St. James’ Park, is really inspiring and will enable them to help even more people.  It makes me really proud to be a Toon fan.

Gabby Logan

Patron

I congratulate Newcastle United Foundation on their 10 year anniversary. Although the return on investment figures in the recent EY report are certainly impressive, the real value of their support to local people is priceless.

Chi Onwurah

Newcastle Central MP

It has been fantastic to see how Kicks is inspiring young people across the North East.

As a Force, we are committed to working with partners to support younger members of our communities.

We want to see everyone given opportunities to reach their full potential and I commend platforms like this for helping people achieve their goals.

Newcastle United Foundation is a key partner for the City Council in delivery of a range of wellbeing and health initiatives, building upon its iconic brand and influence – reaching out to individuals and communities who might not otherwise engage with public health programmes based upon physical activity and fitness.

Eugene Milne

Director of Public Health, Newcastle City Council

It’s critical for Atom that we’re nurturing the right skills and talent in the region and it’s great to be able to contribute to this. I’ve been involved with the Foundation for a number of years and feel really passionate about what they do for the local community.
