Blue Flames is in trouble and needs your help to survive! We are a not for profit sport and leisure organisation who deliver quality facilities to the community at affordable prices. Before this crisis we provided this important community service to around 200,000 people from Newcastle and North Tyneside and we achieved this by raising funds from functions and use that income to subsidise all the activities that take place at Whitley Park. Like many other businesses we are closed due to the coronavirus crisis and while our income has disappeared we still have lots of outgoings (bank loan, utilities, etc.) and are rapidly running out of money. Unfortunately, due to our large rateable value we have so far been unable to secure any grants or loans put in place by the government or the council. Critically, the banks are requiring an intensive vetting process before even considering a loan and our funds will run out before this is available. This is why we are asking for help as we need funds to keep going while we apply for loans. If we don’t get help we will go out of business and this brilliant facility will be gone forever. So to all Blue Flames friends and users please donate what you can to this local appeal.

If you wish to make a donation but dont feel comfortable with on line banking you can send a personal cheque made payable to Blue Flames Sports Club and post it direct to Blue Flames.
