Sting is putting something back into his hometown community with Wallsend Boys Club...

It was announced today Wallsend Boys Club have benefited to the tune of $10,000 donated by Sting through the annual Broadway Cares fundraiser in New York. The windfall comes as a direct result of Sting writing and performing his musical The Last Ship on Broadway, famously telling the story of life in the Wallsend shipyards which dominated the town when Sting was Noddy. The Last Ship was principally based on the Swan Hunter shipyard and significantly, what became the boys club began life as a facility for the apprentices of that company. Wallsend BC have launched a fundraising appeal to build a new youth club facility on their spanking new ground at Bigges Main. Such an ambitious programme will cost a whopping £1m, but it’s got off to a flying start with Sting’s donation...

Sting talks to fans about 'paying back his debt' to his Wallsend community...

Rock star Sting is on a mission which is seeing him "paying back his debt" to his Tyneside roots. On a return to the region, he tells Kate Proctor about childhood, fame and where he now calls home. Soaring over the heads of 600 fans and bouncing off the wooden window frames of a school hall, is Sting's voice. His distinctive soulful tone is still quite perfect - perhaps a little deeper now he is in his early sixties, but the audience know they are in on something remarkable...

From singing to 13,000 people in Dubai to a night playing in a North East school hall - superstar Sting said he was, in fact, more nervous to perform to a home crowd. The multi-Grammy award-winning singer arrived in South Shields on Saturday night from the Middle East to perform songs from his musical The Last Ship, as well as old favourites from his years in The Police.
