    Funded on Sunday, 25th December 2016

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    £500 has been raised in our first JustGiving push, many thanks for all your lovely messages and kind donations, copied below. So just £500 to go!

    Rob is tramping 1000 miles from Carlisle to London then up the Thames Path to Oxford..
    The scheme will cost just over £20K. We have £4K so far. Your donation will make a difference!
    You can follow his progress on the club website www.newcastlecc.org.uk
    Rob calls it his Proclaimers tour! "I will walk 500 miles ... and I will walk 500 more!" He aims to finish in September.

    * In 2012 the club raised £130K to make the entrance and pavilion ground floor accessible.
    * In 2013 a verandah make an accessible area for the terrace.
    But the first floor and balcony remain a no-go area - these include the popular Meeting Room and the wonderful heritage pictures with information about the 125 year history of the Jesmond Ground.
