Humanitarian aid for Ukraine collection point in Newcastle
A humanitarian aid for Ukraine collection point in Newcastle will be running from Monday to Friday 5pm to 7pm.
A member of the Ukrainian community is calling for help from the people of Newcastle to donate urgent supplies to refugees and those affected by the war in Ukraine.
They have urged anyone looking to do something positive to contribute to the collection.
Items will be taken down to London where volunteers will transport them onwards to Ukraine.
They said: “Ukrainians are fighting against aggression – one of the biggest armies in the world. It’s not just a war, it’s a genocide of Ukrainian people. Our country is on fire.
“But despite that life is going on for people who couldn’t leave or decided to stay to protect the freedom of our country. Kids are getting born in bunkers, they didn’t make that choice. None of us wanted it.
“We are standing up not only for our freedom, but a freedom and safety in whole Europe.
“Our Ukrainian community in North East is asking everyone for help to support our brave people, our families, our kids.”
Items which are desperately needed are:
– Camping mats
– Sleeping bags
– Protein bars / energy bars
– Painkillers such as ibuprofen
– Anti-flue medicine such as lemsips
– Wound dressing materials
– First aid kit
– Warm blankets
– Thermals/base layers
– Hot water bottles
– Insulated flasks
– Baby food
– Feminine sanitary products
– Power banks for charging phones
– Large and medium size backpacks
– Male socks
The collection point already has sufficient supply of clothing at this stage.
Any donations would be greatly appreciated and can be dropped off at:
North Tyne Industrial Estate

Raoul Moat Drama Coming Soon To ITV
It looks set to be one of ITV’s biggest dramas this year and The Hunt for Raoul Moat is being brought to screen by the same people responsible for smash hit shows Line of Duty, Bodyguard and Vigil.
It was confirmed last April that production on the series had commenced, nearly 12 years after Moat gunman shot ex girlfriend Samantha Stobbart and her new boyfriend Christopher Brown, with Brown dying from his injuries. After fleeing Samantha’s home in Birtley, Moat, who had been released from prison just days earlier, went on the run, shooting on duty policeman PC David Rathband in the face as he sat in a patrol car on the outskirts of Newcastle and leaving him blind.
From there, Moat headed for Northumberland, forcing the quiet village of Rothbury into a lockdown as police launched a frantic search for him. The hunt for Moat reached its conclusion with a tense stand-off between the killer and the police on a riverbank, with Moat eventually shooting himself and dying from his injuries as he was rushed to Newcastle General Hospital.
ITV announced three parter The Hunt for Raoul Moat almost a year ago, as filming got underway in Yorkshire, with a cast including ex Bodyguard star Matt Stokoe as Moat and Inspector George Gently actor Lee Ingeleby as police chief Neil Adamson.
ITV have yet to officially announce an release date for The Hunt for Raoul Moat, but is expected to be form part of the channel’s spring programming.
Newcastle United to Reveal New Shirt Sponsor?
footballinsider247 are reporting that the main shirt sponsor slot for Newcastle United is expected to be filled by airline SAUDI, who sponsored Newcastle’s mid-season tour of their owners’ homeland in December.
They state ‘This site revealed in February that there is frustration at St James’ Park that they have inherited a kit deal with Castore worth just £5m per year with no break clause and several seasons left to run.’
Newcastle’s recently appointed CEO Darren Eales has already previously expressed that the club at looking at all commercial opportunities and fans on Twitter were keen to mock up their expectation for the new shirts, see below and let us know your thoughts and also see our below video on how NUFC can increase commercial avenues..
Eddie Howe’s team are currently in a strong position to achieve a European slot which would increase revenue into the club allowing more spend whilst staying within Financial Fair Play which is something Howe has spoken about on several occasions as they look to stay within. If the club do reach a European slot it should help significantly with recruitment in the summer by making it a more attractive proposition to any incoming targets.
What do you think of the kits – let us know on our facebook page and join in on the conversation.
