In keeping with the Taverners’ creed to give the young and disadvantaged a sporting chance, the Newcastle branch has financially assisted a range of athletes since its inception.
Up until 2005 the awards were called Junior Taverners scholarships, exclusively awarded to cricketers. From 2006 these became the Keith Lewis Memorial Awards. Additional awards have also been initiated:
- Hunter Academy of Sport –(sponsored by Newcastle Lord’s Taverners)
- Newcastle Lord’s Taverners
- Athlete With a Disability
