It has been revealed that the Reuben family have been regular contributors to the NUFC West End foodbank throughout the entire coronavirus pandemic.

The news came from the food bank itself, who thanked the family for their consistent donations while the now failed takeover was looming in the background.

It is well-documented that the Reuben’s have an invested interest in the city even prior to the takeover attempt, owning property throughout Newcastle including Gosforth racecourse.

Here is what the foodbank put on Twitter in the aftermath of Wednesday’s devastating takeover news, which encouraged a response from Jamie Reuben himself, who would have been placed on our board had the Premier League given the green light.

No need to thank me!- you guys are the ones providing invaluable support to those most at need during these difficult times – we will always support the local community in the great city of Newcastle

— Jamie Reuben (@jamiereuben) August 1, 2020

As a resident of Newcastle’s west end myself, this charity is close to home and it is bittersweet to see that the would-be stakeholders had already been contributing to the cause behind the scenes.

News like this reinforces the belief that the consortium were willing to invest in not just the club, but the community as well – something that was echoed by Staveley to The Athletic on Wednesday.

A brilliant donation, yet a reminder of what could have been for our club and city.
