YOUNGSTERS, FAMILIES AND PLAYERS CELEBRATE EFL DAY OF ACTION

Players from Sunderland AFC under 23s got the opportunity to meet pupils and families engaged by SAFC charity Foundation of Light, as part of the EFL’s Day of Action recently.

Jacob Young, Alex Storey and Jack Connolly joined in with activities held at the Beacon of Light, with almost 150 schoolchildren and parents taking part in various sessions.

Celebrating the EFL’s Day of Action (Tuesday 19th March), Championship, League One and League Two clubs each hosted events designed to showcase the very best of their work, tackling a range of issues and enhancing the lives of millions of people around the country.

Foundation of Light activities on the day included: youngsters from West Rainton Primary School taking part in football in the 4G rooftop barn and a multi-sports carousel in the indoor arena; pupils and their parents from St. Aloysius taking part in a Family Learning class which addressed issues such as self-esteem, confidence and mental health, with the players taking part in a special Q&A based on these themes; pupils and their parents from St Oswalds taking part in a Family Learning session where they got a taste of how to cook healthy meals in the Jamie Oliver Ministry of Food kitchen; and finally pupils from the Beacon of Light School taking part in an engineering session in the Nissan Engineering Zone.

“The EFL Day of Action was a great success and is a fantastic platform to showcase what we deliver and have nearly 150 people here at the Beacon.  I would like to thank Jacob, Alex and Jack for coming along today and celebrating the day with us.”

Jamie Wright, Director of Programmes at the Foundation of Light
