Newcastle-based wealth and fund management experts, Tier One Capital has continued its support for grass roots sport in the region, this time sponsoring Sport Newcastle's Unsung Hero awards and annual charity golf day.

Tier One Capital's long running corporate sponsorship partnership with Sport Newcastle helps the charity deliver its ongoing quest to support the dreams of sporting talent and grassroots sport organisations in the region.

The Unsung Hero awards were held at the Newcastle Falcons’ Kingston Park and the golf day held at Ponteland Golf Club and raised further vital funds for local athletes, sports organisations and grassroots sports participation in the region.

The annual golf day was attended by a wide range of local like-minded businesses and was again supported by SOS Group, which is also a long-time supporter of Sport Newcastle fundraising events. 

Teams taking part in the day included Ward Hadaway, Northumbria University, City of Newcastle Gymnastics Academy, Better GLL, Footprint PR, Trusted Red, Root Cause Consultancy and Pardoe Wray. Unite Group ran out the eventual winners on the day.

Tier One Capital's support for both events further underlines the company’s commitment to contributing to the local community and encouraging involvement in sport at all levels.   

Chief Executive, Ian McElroy said: "As a business deeply rooted in the North East, and with a team of active sports enthusiasts, we are thrilled to continue our long running support of Sport Newcastle. 

"The Unsung Hero awards typify what Sport Newcastle stands for and the awards really show cases what grassroots sport and the many dedicated people who give up their time to help young sports people achieve their dreams. We were especially proud to present the awards to the deserving winners on the night.”

Mike Booth, Vice Chair of Sport Newcastle, said: "The Unsung Hero awards recognised a wide range of sporting success stories and people from sports organisations around the region and our annual Golf Day, played at one of the North East finest golf courses, was a tremendous success this year raising over £6,500.

“The support we receive from local businesses is crucial to our long-standing charity's efforts in promoting and nurturing young sporting talent in the region. 

"We are immensely grateful for the continued support from Tier One Capital, a generous sponsor who shares our values and enables emerging sports talents to realise their full potential." he added.
