NO CHANCE OF MARY THROWING TOWEL IN

Mary Egglestone is hooked on the Foundation of Light’s Extra Time Hub initiative after it has given her the opportunity to try so many new things!

As an avid Sunderland fan, Mary was delighted to spend her spare time with like-minded people and have the chance to enjoy regular activities.

In partnership with the EFL Trust, the Extra Time Hub aims to make a positive difference to the lives of retired and semi-retired people.

Mary joined a session at the Beacon of Light when it was first launched 12 months ago, hoping to meet new people and socialise โ€“ and by her own admission, itโ€™s opened up so many more opportunities for her:

โ€œIโ€™ve made new friends and had the chance to try things Iโ€™d never have imagined. Weโ€™ve done keep fit, football, quizzes, bingo and even boxing! Iโ€™ve even had a go at playing the ukulele!

โ€œA couple of times some of the players have called in to visit us, which is nice. Tom Flanagan and Lee Burge came to find out more about the programme and Kevin Ball and Gary Bennett joined in our cooking demo session โ€“ youโ€™re never too old to learn!โ€™

Mary was also impressed with how inclusive the Extra Time Hub sessions were, with one member who uses a mobility scooter managing to take part in the football games as he kept goal!

As the initiative approaches its one-year anniversary, it has continued to play such a vital role during lockdown.

WhatsApp groups were set up to keep all 74 members in touch and continue to support one another, with SAFC director David Jones also calling for a chat!

Virtual coffee mornings were arranged and members were kept busy with special activity packs that included puzzles, recipes and exercises to try while staying safe at home.

The EFL, Sport England and Lottery, introduced Extra Time Hubs to 12 EFL clubs, the scheme is designed to engage with those aged over-55 to combat loneliness and inactivity, bringing people together and offer a range of activities to benefit physical as well as mental health.
