Talk of TynesideFundraising in memory of Christian Atsu
Following the tragic passing of Christian Atsu in the 2023 Turkey-Syria earthquake, Newcastle United fan group Talk of Tyneside is hoping to raise money for Arms Around The Child, a charity that Christian worked as a Global Ambassador for.
Funds raised will help Arms Around The Child finish a school in Ghana that Christian started building, and support the children he loved so much.
Christian was a well-loved figure on Tyneside and this has been highlighted by the scale of tributes paid to him by Newcastle United Football club and its fans.
His experience of growing up in Ghana with very little meant he never forgot his roots or his people back home. Christian said: “Whenever I go home, I am happy. You never forget the person you were before you left. I survived but I don’t forget.”
His desire to help, care and support communities back in Ghana led him to the connection with Arms Around the Child and becoming the Global Ambassador for the charity.
We hope that fellow Toon fans will join us in donating what they can afford, to help a cause that was close to Christian's heart.
