The Falcons players enjoyed an impromptu game of touch rugby alongside the DFDS Seaways cruise ferry Princess of Norway, before boarding the vessel for brunch.
The leading cruise ferry operator’s partnership with the Community Foundation has provided the funding for Newcastle Falcons Community Foundation to enable community activity for young people across the region
Melanie Magee at Newcastle Falcons commented: “The Community Foundation is an important part of the club’s annual work.
"We believe that involvement in our community is vital to the future of the club, and the players themselves are keen to give back to the community too. DFDS Seaways' partnership will enable us to significantly expand our programme, with a new cheerleading and dance project.”
John Crummie, UK Managing Director of DFDS Seaways added: “DFDS Seaways takes its corporate social responsibility very seriously, and we recognise the need to support the community in which we operate.
"As an organisation we chose to become involved with Newcastle Falcons' Community Foundation, recognising the very real benefits it makes to the region. We believe that the project that we are helping to fund is a great opportunity for the young people of the region to develop their skills, and of course have fun.
"With our help, the Community Foundation will make the most of our region’s talent."
