First Class Supply –

First Class Community Support

Here at First Class Supply, we are really proud of the difference we make to our local community, especially our local schools.

Our ethos is simple – it’s important to us to ‘give something back’ and we’re delighted to have made a real difference in our partner schools. Not as ‘one offs’, but consistently in recognition of the relationships we have formed.

Our exclusive partnerships with the well-respected Newcastle United Foundation, the Newcastle Falcons Community Foundation and Seven Stories, the National Centre for Children’s Books, has enabled us to ensure thousands of local school children have enjoyed interactive workshops, events and unique sporting experiences and training at no cost to our schools.

Check our pages regularly to see how we could make a difference to your school!
