Youngsters win with partnership

Youngsters enjoy four days of football fun with Foundation of Light coaches and Shildon AFC players.

Every day children took part in various games and activities which included healthy breakfasts donated by Greggs and Shildon Alive with lunches provided by Salvos restaurant, in Shildon.

Jamie Wright, Director of Programmes at the Foundation of Light said: “It was great to welcome the youngsters to the Beacon to enjoy football on our rooftop pitch and a fantastic treat courtesy of livin, Shildon FC and Hays Travel.

Whilst the Beacon of Light is a fantastic facility our strength is always in supporting our communities out in their neighbourhoods which we’re able to do with the help of organisations like livin

Thanks to the new partnership between Hays Travel and Shildon AFC, youngsters also travelled to the Foundation’s state-of-the-art sports and education facility, the Beacon of Light where they enjoyed football training and small sided games on the rooftop 4G pitch.

Alan Boddy, Executive Director of Housing and Operations at livin said: “We are all very proud to be able to offer the improved free activities club in the heart of one of our communities. Through our growing partnership network, we can offer opportunities such as these to our tenants and target areas. Feedback from parents at Easter was overwhelmingly positive which was mirrored in the sell-out bookings for the summer club”

John Hays, Chief Executive of Hays Travel said: “We are delighted to support Shildon AFC in delivering projects such as these to the community. The holiday clubs are a great opportunity for the children to access new opportunities such as the visit to the Beacon.”

Funding received from housing provider livin allowed these activities to take place.

For further information about activities in the Shildon and South Durham area contact michael.colclough@foundationoflight.co.uk or call 01388 317 007.
