Scores of families have been able to make the most of the Beacon of Light as a safe space to play during this past half-term.
Thanks to funding from BBC Children in Need, the Foundation of Light has been able to welcome families with youngsters who have special educational needs and disabilities throughout the school break.
Restrictions during lockdown and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic have made it difficult for children to enjoy playtime and the home of SAFC’s official charity provides a perfect venue.
The outdoor pitches at the Beacon of Light were made available to use, as well as equipment to enjoy, providing children a safe environment to play.
Children in Need have been a long-term partner of the Foundation and it’s thanks to their funding that it was possible offer the sessions.
Kevin Darke, Foundation of Light Inclusion Coordinator, said: “It was great to see so many families making the most of the space and enjoying the Beacon again.
“This was the first time we trialled this type activity and we had a great response; it was a fantastic experience and something which we are hoping to run again.”
