Back at the beginning of 2018 we were contacted by Gerry Glyde. Gerry had lived in the area for many years and was interested in making a donation to the Club to support our young athletes. He had recently received news about his health and had decided to distribute some funds to local charities, one being for young athletes.
Gerry came to visit us on a club training night where he met a few of the volunteers and coaches and watched our training sessions in progress and how we operated. He was very kind to provide the club with a generous donation which was used to support young athletes to participate in training and competition.
We were very sad to hear of Gerry’s passing in 2019 but are truly delighted to have received a further gifted donation of funds from his estate. The funds will be used to support young athletes from the Gateshead area to help them to achieve their ambitions.
We would like to extend our best wishes to the Executors of Gerry’s estate and to Gerry’s memory. He really has made a difference to the lives of several young athletes.
