Concept, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Xerox, has chosen us to be the beneficiary of this year’s football fund-raising.

Since 2014 prominent businesses in the region have taken part in the Concept Cup – a five-a-side tournament – and raised thousands of pounds through entry fees, raffles, auctions and collections.

This year’s event is on Friday September 14 at Goals Gosforth and 18 teams have already signed up, including a promising squad from Children North East itself, captained by Wallsend Boys Club Ladies player, Rebecca George.  Rebecca works as a Project Co-ordinator for our YouthLink Project.

Rebecca has high hopes of her squad in the Concept Cup, which is made up of fellow Children North East employees, Mark Lowdon, who plays for the LGBT-inclusive team, Newcastle Panthers, as well as Kate Sandberg; Ricky Murray; Rachel Leslie; Alana Dutton and Naomi Hope.
