North East leisure specialists The Malhotra Group has lent its support to the Magpie's charity Newcastle United Foundation as a joint sponsor of its popular match day lottery, Foundation Fortoons.
The group, which has Scalini's, New Northumbria Hotel, Osbornes and The Three Mile Inn as part of our leisure portfolio and Prestwick Care in its Care portfolio has signed up to promote its key businesses on the back of the lottery tickets for every game during the 2012/13 season.
Managing Director Atul Malhotra and his wife are special guests of the Foundation at the game against Manchester City and will step onto the hallowed turf to draw out the winning number at half time.
Atul Malhotra said:
'The Malhotra Group is delighted to be working with Newcastle United's official charity. By sponsoring this initiative, not only are we able to offer our customers fantastic deals at restaurants like Scalini's, it also ensures that every penny raised through the lottery benefits the disadvantaged children that really need it.
Fundraising Manager, Sarah Medcalf said:
"We would like to thank The Malhotra Group for their support this season. This means we can raise even more funds for our charity to benefit disadvantaged local children and young people."
Foundation Fortoons tickets are now on sale around the ground at every home game before kick-off. Each ticket will be entered into the half-time draw on the pitch, and at every match one lucky fan will walk away with £1,000.
Look out for agents in yellow around the concourse, in the bars and executive boxes and suites. Tickets are just £2 and all proceeds go to the Newcastle United Foundation (registered charity no 1124896).
