Ladbrokes visit and why Newcastle must win Saturday for charity

I visited the Hexham branch of Ladbrokes on Tuesday to meet the local staff, hear about their apprenticeship scheme and discuss efforts to promote responsible gambling.
Kindly the store offered me a charity bet. As a a former steeplechase jockey and tipster I would normally bet on horses but I am not a huge fan of the flat so I picked this Saturdays football game and backed:
- Newcastle to beat Aston Villa at odds of 7-4
- Newcastle to win 2-1 at odds of 10-1
2 good charity causes riding on this so no pressure lads! The game is at 12.45.
