Greggs help Falcons Bring the Noise

Friday 14 November 2014 Written by: Adam

Newcastle Falcons are pleased to announce that Newcastle-based national bakery chain Greggs are the latest business to confirm that they will be Bring the Noise at the club’s game against Gloucester on Friday 21st November.

To celebrate the partnership Andy Saull, Warren Fury and Adam Powell visited Greggs’ Gosforth headquarters yesterday to meet staff and help them Bring the Noise!

That match will see representatives from Greggs run a bucket collection for the Greggs Foundation, a registered charity aimed at making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged people within our local communities.

The game will also involve a half time mascot race which will see Newcastle Falcons’ own Flash the Falcons line up alongside Children in Need’s Pudsey Bear and Greggs Mascot Hope the Bear as well as other mascots.

Greggs’ involvement with the match comes as the business announces its first ever partnership with Newcastle Falcons Community Foundation.
The two organisations will be working together on the Greggs Tackle Health programme which will see a range of coaching, educational and engagement measures implemented through 15 Greggs Breakfast Club Schools across the North East and Cumbria.

The programme will culminate with a tag festival to be held at Kingston Park later this season, with the final of that festival held on the main pitch of Kingston Park at half time during one of the Falcons’ upcoming Aviva Premiership games.

Greggs have also worked with participants of the Falcons’ Hitz programme, providing them with a factory tour to give a behind the scenes glimpse at one of the biggest and most successful businesses in the North East, helping them to see just how much enterprise within the North East can achieve.

Melanie Magee, Head of Marketing and Community at Newcastle Falcons said: “We are very excited to be working with such a well-known and respected brand as Greggs.
“The company is a North East institution which works incredibly hard to improve the lives of people across the region and we are thrilled that they have chosen the Falcons Community Foundation as a partner to deliver the Tackling Health programme.

“We are delighted to be raising money for the Greggs Foundation at the game against Gloucester to help support their pioneering breakfast club initiative, and look forward to hearing Greggs and their supporters Bring the Noise at this huge Aviva Premiership game.”

Tickets for the game against Gloucester are available to buy now online or from the club’s 24 hour Ticket Hotline on 0871 226 6060.
