Hi my name is Benthe and I hope to be your next Athletic Union Officer.
We are better when we work together so I strive to foster more inter club connections to make Team Newcastle more united, accessible and inclusive. Secondly, I want to work on mental health as it deserves more attention and awareness. Last but not least I strive to provide coaching courses for interested club members which could benefit many clubs. Thank you.

And thirdly I would like to work with the Sports Centre to introduce a new payment plan and options to ensure gym memberships are affordable and increase participation at Newcastle. Remember to vote for Chris.
