O’NIEN BECOMES AMBASSADOR TO BUILD A STRONGER BRITAIN

Sunderland AFC’s Luke O’Nien is showing his support by becoming a Player Ambassador for ‘Building a Stronger Britain Together’ programme which is delivered in partnership with The Home Office.

The Foundation of Light is one of 10 sports-based projects across the UK to receive funding and will be delivered to 9-19-year olds throughout the region.

The eight-week programme will be centred in schools around anti-discrimination, tolerance and racism awareness. Pupils will engage in projects such as creating a new fair play sport that is inclusive to all, creating posters and volunteering, with each young person aiming to challenge myths, attitudes and stereotypes, and break down barriers between communities.

It’s an honour to be an ambassador for the Building a Stronger Britain Together programme.  Football has the power to have a positive influence on our communities promoting the shared values that underpin our society; mutual respect, democracy, free speech, tolerance and opportunities for all.

Luke O’Nien, Sunderland AFC midfielder

Dave Jeffries, Foundation of Light Skills Lead added: “We work in the heart of the city and deliver in a range of communities.  By delivering programmes such as Building a Stronger Britain Together we hope to combat and tackle stigma and discrimination and bring communities closer together.”

In October, Foundation of Light hosted a Black History Month event at the Beacon of Light alongside Young Asian Voices and the BAME network in Sunderland. More than 500 people enjoyed activities such as football tournaments, djembe drumming African dancing, food workshops and a fashion show.

For information on how you can get involved in the programme contact dave.jeffries@foundationoflight.co.uk or call 0191 563 4756.
