2021 is a very special year for the Foundation of Light.
Its marks the 20th year of using the power of football to involve, educate and inspire thousands of people across the North East to live happier and heathier lives.
Since becoming a charity in 2001, we have grown from a handful of staff to become one of the biggest football charities in the county and its very own state-of-the-art sports and education facility, the Beacon of Light.
To celebrate our 20th birthday, we’ve a series of events and celebrations throughout the year to showcase the impact of our work, from the launch, featuring our Royal Patron HRH The Countess of Wessex, to Top Scorer Awards, Samson’s Big Sports Day and Gala Dinner to name a few.
2021 marks 20 years of making a real difference. Play your part and help us achieve our target of £50,000 to support critical mental health and employability projects.
