Sir James Knott Trust Awards Grant to Project Pitchside
Newcastle United Foundation has received a grant of £150,000 from the Sir James Knott Trust. The grant is in support of Project Pitchside, the Foundation’s project to build a new centre for sport, education and wellbeing on the site of Murray House, a community centre in the West End of Newcastle.
The cheque was presented to Kate Bradley, Head of Newcastle United Foundation, by Trust Secretary Vivien Stapley.
The Sir James Knott Trust is an independent charitable trust. It aims to help improve the living and working conditions of people living in the North East of England by supporting community projects in Tyne and Wear, Northumberland and County Durham.
Kate Bradley, Head of Newcastle United Foundation, said:
“I am delighted to accept this grant from the Sir James Knott Trust to support our vision for Project Pitchside. We are very grateful their support at this early stage of our project.
“Our Foundation is now working with record numbers of children, young people and families across the region and so Project Pitchside is the next chapter in our ten year history.”
Vivien Stapely added:
“The Sir James Knott Trustees are proud to be able to support this exciting, initiative which will be of huge benefit to all communities across the region.”
