The Newcastle Rugby Foundation is a charity that makes rugby the positive difference in the lives of the community. Encompassing both Falcons Community and Thunder Community, it currently employs 14 staff who work across a wide variety of projects in both codes.

Commenting on his appointment as ambassador, Tony Underwood said: “I’ve been blown away by the work that the Foundation undertakes, and more so by the individuals that go out of their way every day making a massive change in people’s lives.

“They exemplify everything that their young charges could do with replicating to forge a future built on lasting character and values that resonate with everyone they come into contact with.

“The Foundation is not sitting still though and has done a huge amount of work bringing together its belief system in the form of Rugby+, a vision that crystallises just how much of a positive difference the core values of rugby can make.”
