SAFC launch campaign to tackle mental health

Sunderland AFC and its official charity, Foundation of Light, have launched a special match day campaign dedicated to improving mental health in the North East.

Sunderland AFC take on Doncaster on 19th April at the Stadium of Light and the match is being dedicated to the clubโ€™s charity, to raise awareness and funds for the award-winning community organisation.

The Foundation of Light uses the power of football to involve, educate and inspire young people and their families through award winning sport, education, employability, health and wellbeing programmes.

The โ€˜Give a Quidโ€™ campaign hopes to raise ยฃ30,000 to support the charityโ€™s work across the North East to improve peopleโ€™s mental health, through its programmes.

Fans and businesses can get involved and make difference to their communities, by holding their own fundraising events in the build-up to the day, by supporting the bucket collections in the Stadium and purchasing the charityโ€™s โ€˜Grand in Your Handโ€™ lottery tickets at the match or by donating online through JustGiving.

A fundraising pack is available on the Foundation of Light website for businesses or community organisations who want to get involved, with businesses who support the campaign set to receive visits from the Black Catsโ€™ mascots Samson and Delilah, and Foundation of Light social media team.

Talking about the Give a Quid campaign and the dedicated matchday, Lesley Spuhler OBE, Foundation of Light Chief Executive commented: โ€œResearch shows one in 10 people in the North East will be diagnosed with depression and one in 10 children aged between five and 16 have a diagnosable mental health problem.

The problem is very real. We frequently hear stories of how bullying and other pressures in life have made people we support consider suicide, or how they had become so anxious that they wouldnโ€™t leave the house.

โ€œOur sport and education programmes are making a real difference to those affected by mental health issues, giving them a new and positive outlook on life. ยฃ30,000 will go a long way to helping us support more people as well further enhance a number of programmes to create a strong bedrock on which to build positive mental health for future generations.โ€

Sunderland AFC Managing Director Tony Davison added: โ€œWorking with and supporting our local community is something that is at the heart of who we are as a football club.

โ€œWe know Sunderland fans are passionate and proud, and we know from initiatives such as our seat change and Gift of Football campaigns that we can do something amazing when we pull together.

โ€œThe Foundation Matchday is a fantastic way for supporters to get actively involved with the clubโ€™s charity and to raise vital funds for mental health, something that will affect so many within our community.

โ€œI would urge as many people as possible to support us and help us get to our ยฃ30,000 target.

How to get involved

Thereโ€™s lots of ways to get involved. Why not organise a red and white day at work? Or get out of the office at lunch time and enjoy a โ€œwellbeing walkโ€. Or maybe get together to chat over lunch with friends and colleagues.

Donations can be made in person at the Beacon of Light, or online via foundationoflight.co.uk.

If you are a business and would like to get involved, contact clare.wilson@foundationoflight.co.uk or call Clare on 0191 563 4777 to find out more.
