Princes Trust Team Participants Play Part In City Walls Revamp
11 Princes Trust Team participants are working to revamp an area of Newcastle’s famous city walls.
As part of the Team programme, delivered by Newcastle United Foundation staff, students are able to get involved in community programmes to boost their skills and confidence.
Working alongside NE1 and Newcastle City Council, the cohort are improving a walkway along the city walls which has fallen into disrepair. Over the coming weeks our participants will clear the area of foliage, rubbish, and paint over graffiti to encourage more locals to enjoy the area.
Under the guidance of the council our hard working participants are also hoping to bring a local graffiti artist in to create a design featuring a positive message, to improve the look of the walkway.
The project has been assisted through a number of Foundation partners. Esh Group have donated paint and new wood to renew old benches, while NE1 have provided all the tools our participants needed to get the job done.
Lee Smith, Prince’s Trust Team Co-ordinator at Newcastle United Foundation, said: “Our students have been working incredibly hard on this project so to see it begin to come to fruition is really satisfying.
“Whilst working the students have been speaking to lots of tourists who use the route to see the famous bridges across the Tyne as well as locals who have been really impressed with our work.”
