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.

We had a fantastic time at the St Thomas More RC Academy 25th Anniversary Ball last Friday evening! We are also very proud to have been a main sponsor of the school’s Lourdes benefit, a very worthy cause. Here are some of the team enjoying themselves, don’t they look great!
Here’s an article that appeared in the local press – a wonderful accolade for First Class Supply!

SPRING came early for students in North Shields as they celebrated their school’s 25th anniversary by raising thousands of pounds for charity.
St Thomas More’s Spring Ball, which took place at the Assembly Rooms in Newcastle, was attended by staff, parents, supporters of the school and students past and present.
The event raised more than £4,000 for the Handicapped Pilgrimage Trust, an organisation which takes young people who are ill or have a disability to Lourdes in France, every Easter with the help and support of the school’s sixth form students.
The funds were raised through an auction and a raffle, with prizes being donated from various local businesses and celebrity Declan Donnelly.
Whitley Bay-based agency First Class Supply and Training donated £750 and a case of champagne for the raffle. Barclays matched this with another £750.
Headteacher Diane Donkin said: “The spring fundraising ball was a most enjoyable evening, bringing together representatives from all sections of our school community.
“Everyone was very generous towards this worthy cause, which our young people have found to be truly life changing whether they take part as a guest or a helper.
“I am especially grateful to teachers Mr and Mrs Merchant for their inspiration and commitment to now what is a regular feature in the school’s calendar, to Mrs Breen for her superb organisation of the event and to First Class Supply and Training for not only being a first class provider but also their amazing generosity.”
