The Foundation will also recognise a Foundation Champion and present the second Alder Sweeney Award, in memory of John Alder and Liam Sweeney; Magpies supporters who tragically lost their lives in the MH17 disaster, which recognises an outstanding contribution to grassroots football.

Head of Newcastle United Foundation, Kate Bradley, said: โ€œRafa has been a huge advocate of the Foundation since he became Manager at Newcastle United and weโ€™re delighted that he is joining us to celebrate some of our greatest success stories of the last 12 months.ย  We hugely appreciate Rafa and the teamโ€™s support and those businesses and sponsors that have already confirmed their attendance.ย  Weโ€™re looking forward to sharing some really special moments with our guests.โ€

Rafa Benitez added: โ€œThe work the Foundation does in the community is really important and Iโ€™m very happy to be supporting them at this event.ย  I have been really impressed by what I have seen and heard so far.ย  Iโ€™m looking forward to celebrating some very special people on the night.โ€
