We used that strap-line (We Will Rebuild) 5 years ago on our 2007 Dinner Programme after we (Wallsend Boys’ Club) had been granted the funding to develop our own pitches and changing rooms at Bigges Main. The Club thought that this line from Jimmy Nail’s song, ‘Big River’, was a statement of defiance to set against the continuing economic decline of Wallsend as a town after the loss of its Shipbuilding and Coal Mining industries in previous years. http://www.themag.co.uk/the-mag-articles/we-will-rebuild/

This activity was organised as a fundraising event for our young people involved in our NCS project in conjunction with ASDA Wallsend. 12 of our young people spent 4 hours helping local shoppers to pack their shopping bags and welcome them into the store. The team raised a very presentable total of £134 not at all bad for a smaller branch.
ASDA Wallsend were kind enough to let us join their local appeal. We battled it out with two other local organisations and people pledged their little green tokens they were given for shopping at the store in to the slot they saw fit to support. It was clear from the out set that the local people felt the Boys Club was a worth while cause and worthy of their tokens as our levels rose and rose. By the time the competition came to a close the Boys club was a clear favourite with the tokens almost at the top. We... Read More
