FOUNDATION OF LIGHT SUPPORTS SUNDERLAND FOODBANK

As the nation gets used to life in lock-down, Sunderland AFCโ€™s official charity, the Foundation of Light continues its work to protect the most vulnerable across Sunderland, South Tyneside and County Durham.

This week, as part of a co-ordinated effort to support a number of areas in need throughout the region, Foundation staff have been lending their support to the Sunderland Foodbank, helping to package up and deliver vital food parcels and answer the phones.

Jamie Wright, Foundation of Lightโ€™s Managing Director said: โ€œFollowing the governmentโ€™s decision to close all schools to prevent the spread of COVID-19, many parents have been left in the challenging position of having to keep children entertained and happy for long periods of time, within the boundaries of their own home.

โ€œFor some people in our community, who already struggle to provide food for the family, removing the lifeline of free school meals has made these already stressful times even more worrying and challenging.

As a charity rooted in the heart of our community, our role at times like these is to help and support our partners to protect those most in need. When we asked our staff if they could help, there was no hesitation โ€“ they want to get involved, show their support and make a difference

โ€œIf we, alongside the Sunderland Foodbank, can help someone, put a smile on their face and let them know we are here for them, then thatโ€™s what matters to us.โ€

The Foundation of Lightโ€™s has a long-standing relationship with the Sunderland Foodbank, with the charityโ€™s home – the Beacon of Light – acting as a donation drop-off point for SAFC fans heading to matches. Members of the Foundationโ€™s post-16 scholarship programme have also collected and donated food, as part of social action projects.

Last season alone, in partnership with Sunderland AFC, over two tonnes of food were donated.

How to Get Involved

#FoLfightsBack

Working at the Foodbank this week is part of the Foundationโ€™s #FoLFightsBack campaign, which showcases the award-winning charityโ€™s work to support communities as the nation fights COVID-19.

A key part of the campaign is a range of daily and weekly sport, exercise and creative challenges via its social media channels to keep people active, mentally and physically, during the lockdown period.

If youย  would like to get involved and receive top tips on keeping busy, healthy wellbeing or home-schooling visit Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.

Thank You for Making a Difference

The Foundation matters to our communities now more than ever before and we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has, and continues to, support us.

Sadly, the North East has one of the highest deprivation rates in the country, with a number of communities in the Sunderland, South Tyneside and County Durham living in the top 10% most-deprived areas in the UK.

For those communities, COVID-19 could spell disaster. For so many we are a vital lifeline, helping thousands to improve their lives.

Together we are making a difference. Thank you.
