Newcastle United Foundation’s Zip Slide Across St. James’ Park – Sign Up!


We are big supporters of the Newcastle United Foundation.

And we want to help get the word out of a Zip Slide across St. James’ Park which will take place on Saturday 17th March 2018 – St. Patrick’s Day.

This is an event for the adrenaline junkies and a great team building experience for everybody involved!

You can Zip slide from Level 7 across St. James’ Park and take in the views (maybe) before touching down (safely) at the Gallowgate end.

Rafa Benitez is a huge supporter of the Newcastle United Foundation

Here is an example of people who are helped by the Newcastle United Foundation – watch Jack’s story.

Registration is £35 per person or £350 for a team of 10, and the organizer goes free!

One criterion is that each person aims to raise £150 in sponsorship – there is no minimum age although those taking part must weigh between 6 and 17 stones (84 lbs to 238 lbs).

You can book online here.

If you have any questions, then please direct them to laura.sharman@nufc.co.uk

See if you can help the Newcastle United Foundation in the great charity work they are doing in the name of Newcastle United Football Club.

Rafa is a huge supporter of the Foundation.

Thanks.

    I reckon the weight limit rules out Akinfenwa from making a spectacular entrance when we sign him.

    Not been on for a few days but been following the Jorgensen rumours. Guy probably isn’t worth 20m (I’m sure it’s euros not pounds so around £16-17m) but I saw feyenoord a couple times last season. Not seen them this season. Guy is a good striker, those criticising him based on YouTube without seeing him are just as bad as those who go mad for players from YouTube… Dennis Wise the lot you 😉

    Doesn’t have a lot of pace but would that be necessary with players like kenedy, atsu, Murphy and even Perez behind you and hopefully running beyond as to suit target men? And how is criticising his pace fair when others ask for dost?

    For what it’s worth, technically, the player is very good. He’s big, strong and can finish. So what if they are tap ins or not worldies, he links up play and gets in the box on the end of things. What more do you want? Hes got intelligent movement and creates space for midfield. I can see him doing well for us but not if the pressure is on him as fans were expecting a ‘big name’. It’s a joke that he’s lost the fans support when he hasn’t even joined yet. Not that he will lol, don’t see us getting anyone in.

    I said in the summer, aboubakar for £10m which we heavily linked with was great and should have been done without hesitation. Guy is so good and well rounded as a striker. I remember there were a few here who hadn’t seen him and judged him on 1/2 appearances at confederations cup where he didnt play great. I often wonder what posters actually look for in a striker or do most just like to complain for the sake of it.

    Now if Ashley were any kind of owner, he’d take the first ride on the zip wire and if perchance it got stuck over the centre circle….. There’d be a full house there to have their day with the selfish, greedy bustard!

    So Sanchez makes his debut at Yeovil tonight. With the money he’s on he could buy their whole club. Possibly the town.

    Jib ….

    Just wondering ….

    What’s your obsession with childish name calling and attacks on Geordie Two ?

    I can’t understand you constantly doing it as Geordie Two is a great entertaining Writer and is brilliant as regards his creativity..really..

    Seriously Jib ..why do you attack him ..I think it’s a damn shame that you constantly at him with derogatory comments made towards him ..Can’t you apologise or something and be friendly towards him ? …just a thought.

    Everyone can see what you do to him. It’s Nasty.

    Reality check on the Jorgensen signing.
    1. Rafa wants him to fit his teams style.
    2. Rafa is God
    3. Trust in Rafa
    4. Stop the whinging until after 31st Jan
    5. Jorgensen looks miles better than what Rafa is currently playing.

    Personally would say the kid has a look of Eider Gudjohnsson, not pacey but clever, technical and can put the ball in the bag.

    Hope he comes and doesn’t suffer prejudice before he kicks a ball. Some Toon supporters revel in criticism…ballbags

    ronaldo,
    Of course he’s not worth 20M, if he was going to another Dutch club he’d be worth 10M max. But they don’t have to sell and we’re desperate, plus he’ll be the only striker on the planet bought for 20M who’ll be on only 50K a week.

    Glad to see Ashley’s raid on the Brixton market has fallen through. If only he could find £300m from somewhere… but where?

    Jail, that’s a fair point. I can’t understand how the guy has rocketed given that he us in a fairly feeble league but of course this wudnt have happened if Ashley had got his arse in gear in the summer. Unpalatable as it is, I would take relegation to get rid of Ashley and get a proper owner in.

    As a wee boy growing up In Glasgow in the 50’s (before moving to the NE in ’61), I learned the phrase ‘dry boak’ and, indeed, endured such an incident. This is the unfortunate experience of very nearly vomiting, where a small amount of hideously bitter stomach acid is unexpectedly regurgitated into the mouth – often as an autonomic response to shock or revulsion – and quickly swallowed again. It is not as bad as vomiting but is quite unpleasant.

    I hadn’t had a dry boak for well over half a century until I read the posts on here submitted by an obnoxious individual at the end of 2017.

    His evangelical threats – ‘try posting again in six hours’ and all the ‘do it again and I’m going to get you blackballed’, ‘I will clean up this blog’, ‘I’m going to tell Dr. Harrison on you’ posts – made me wince and may even have loosened my bowels a little. But the sanctimonious, smug, self-aggrandising pomposity of his subsequent claims of vigilante blog-cleansing triumph did elicit a dry boak. Not nice.

    Should he find himself short of a bob or two, I believe that he should hire himself out as a walking, talking emetic. To listen to that awful drivel AND to simultaneously see the smug, holier-than-thou face that will inevitably accompany it would be a sure-fire stomach emptying experience for anyone who should require such for medical reasons.

    It was a £30 million deal and was to be made through a Sports Direct vehicle, rather than by Chief Executive Ashley personally.
    One of the selling agents confirmed that the party did not comply with the agreed timescales.
    The market is now under offer to another unnamed party.
