Bob Moncur, the Newcastle United legend, is telephoning elderly and vulnerable supporters who are in self-isolation during the coronavirus outbreak.

Club ambassador Moncur and club colleagues, who are all home based during the lockdown, are calling around 1,900 season ticket holders aged 70 and above, as well as other vulnerable groups, to chat about football and combat loneliness.



Phone calls are being prioritised to season ticket holders aged over 70, as well as some younger Memory Café participants who have given the club previous permission to contact them.



It keeps us all younger!” As well as receiving phone calls, Memory Café participants have also received special Memory Bundle packs from the club.

The phone calls are an extension of the club’s Memory Café, which usually meets monthly at St. James’ Park, helping those who feel lonely or isolated can meet and reminisce over a cup of tea or coffee.

“We have seen just how much of a positive impact the Memory Café has had on some of our older supporters over the last year, and the phone calls allow us to continue to reach them and to alleviate isolation and loneliness at a time when it is needed most.

The Memory Café was launched in March 2019 and has been visited on several occasions by former players including Moncur, Malcolm Macdonald, Steve Harper and Shola Ameobi, who have all shared their favourite Magpies moments in person.
