Staff from across the group took to the pitch of St James’ Park to support the work of the Newcastle United Foundation.

They joined twenty teams from organisations across the region to compete in the five-a-side Foundation Cup, part of the Play on the Pitch fundraising day.

Reece Group Team 3 (pictured in white) faced Ward Hadaway in the Foundation Plate final, claiming a 2-1 victory to take home the silverware.

Sarah Medcalf, development manager at Newcastle United Foundation, said: “We would like to thank every single person that supported our Play on the Pitch fundraising day – we have raised well over £20,000 for the Foundation, which will support projects that will help the most disadvantaged people in our community.”
