Our thanks to Kingston Park Community Football Club, which is hosting a Family Fun Day in Newcastle and inviting families from across the region to attend.

It’s sure to be a fun-packed Bank Holiday event, ideal for children of all ages and adults can get involved too!

Our thanks to sponsors, Twin Farms, and everyone involved.

The Kingston Park Community Football Club Family Fun Day is taking place on Monday 28th August, between 12pm and 4pm at Kingston Park Open Spaces (next to Kingston Park Metro Station).

An adult’s ‘5 a side’ tournament will be held, followed by a BBQ at the local family pub, Twin Farms. At the tournament, there will also be a bouncy castle and some fairground rides to cater for families with younger children who are not involved in the matches.

Kevin Richardson, Club Secretary, says: “The day is going to full of activities perfect for a family day out. We decided to hold it following a similar event we recently did to show our support for one our young players who was sadly diagnosed with leukaemia.

“All proceeds made on the day will be donated to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, a charity that we are sponsoring both on and off the field as it is close to the hearts and minds to those involved with the Club.”

The tournament will consist of short matches, approximately 15 minutes each, and regardless of ability or fitness level, anyone can join in as long as they’re over 16! Those who want to play can enter teams of five to seven players. Groups will be organised for teams who want to play a little more competitively and for players who just want to play for the fun of it! Female teams and mixed teams are especially welcome.

Pauline Buglass, from the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, said: “We’re very grateful to everyone at Kingston Park Community Football Club for their hard work in staging this family fun day.

“We have no doubts it will be a huge success and it’s been organised so there really is something for all the family to enjoy.

“The money raised will help us continue the work that Sir Bobby began when he launched his charity, and will help find more effective ways to detect and treat cancer. Our thanks to all involved.”

Following the tournament, everyone will head off to Twin Farms pub for a relaxed and friendly BBQ where burgers, hot dogs and fries will be served up in the outside area free of charge for the adult participants and for junior players registered with the club.

Kevin adds: “We’ll also have a raffle and auctions going on so it’s expected to be a very busy and enjoyable day for all involved.

“We’re really looking forward to it and raising money for an excellent cause – finding better ways to detect and treat cancer.”

The event is free of charge to Club players and their siblings, but they will still need a ticket so that they receive free food at the BBQ.  An adult five a side ticket is £4.00 and an adult spectator ticket is £6.00 – both prices include the BBQ meal too.
