Thank you for your fundraising request. Newcastle Rugby Ltd supports chosen affiliate charities via a variety of means including signed merchandise, player visits, charity collections.
In addition, Newcastle Rugby Limited supports the Newcastle Rugby Foundation, the club’s own charity who aim to make Rugby+ the positive difference that changes lives for good. Using rugby as a hook, our programmes boost wellbeing, grow skills, build belonging and raise involvement for thousands of people across the North east and Cumbria, in some of the most disadvantaged communities.
We receive hundreds of charity requests every week and unfortunately it is not possible for us to support every charity to the same level. Over past seasons Newcastle Rugby Ltd have assisted in raising considerable sums for MY NAME’5 DODDIE foundation, Help for Heroes and The Poppy Appeal – through our Falcons Forces programme – as well as numerous local charities through bucket collections, ticket sales, and auction lots.
We regularly invite charities on-site for match-day activations and fundraising opportunities and frequently support a whole host of organisations through our digital marketing efforts.
