Newcastle Rugby Foundation attends Gateshead RFC Summerfest

Tuesday 29 August 2023 Written by: Alan

Speaking to the local community about the work the foundation does, there was also a raffle, with the top prize being a family ticket to any Falcons game this season.

All funds raised help support the foundation and the programmes they provide in the community, such as HITZ.

The HITZ programme is Newcastle Rugby Foundation’s employability and enrichment programme which looks to support young people in the region in getting employment ready.

Newcastle Rugby Foundation works in partnership with Newcastle College delivering formal qualifications and a suite of sessions including self-esteem, money management, proper social media use, professional relationships and more.

We also want to thank all the CAST members who volunteered for this event, helping with the raffle and selling merchandise at our stall. They were all outstanding and on hand from the moment they arrived.

And thanks to Gateshead RFC for having us.

The winning number from the raffle was 857. If this is your ticket you can claim your prize by emailing .
