FOUNDATION OF LIGHT
REGISTERED CHARITY OF SUNDERLAND AFC
Established in 2001 by former Sunderland AFC chairman Sir Bob Murray CBE, our mission is simple: to improve lives through the power of football.
We have grown to become one of the most pioneering sports charities in the world, winning multiple awards for our ground-breaking sports, health, community and education programmes.
The cross section of people we work with is unparalleled within our community; those we work with vary in age from 18 months to 80 years plus. We truly do offer something for everyone, with programmes impacting health, behaviour, attitude, skills, knowledge and more.
Our passionate, dedicated and highly skilled team includes professional teachers, health workers, coaches, family learning officers, youth workers and support staff based at offices and classrooms within the Beacon of Light and outreach centres throughout Sunderland, South Tyneside and County Durham.
Whilst we are linked to SAFC, we are structurally and financially independent of the football club. This means we are responsible for fundraising £4 million every year to run our life-changing programmes.
Celebrating the rich cultural heritage of the City of Sunderland, granted city status in 1992 this drawing depicts iconic Wearside landmarks and acknowledges Mackem pride for their city and football club. Magnificent black panthers, of Sunderland Association FC also known as the Black Cats, assemble on the Wearmouth Bridge. Layered elements include the Penshaw Monument and the launch of cargo ship Victoria City, symbolising the legacy of Sunderland's eminent shipbuilding industry. The name Mackem is mostly thought to have derived from the phrase mackem and tackem, which refers to making ships in Sunderland shipyards and taking them down the river Wear to sea. Striding across the bridge is a representation of a black cat caricature from a 1930’s football card. Homage to the city's prestigious glassmakers is paid through the glass like appearance of sections of the Wearmouth Bridge, the sparkling eyes of the panthers and glass tug boats sailing down the river Wear. The ghost like presentation of the little boats suggests the demise of the region’s shipyards. Sitting on top of the bridge next to the large panther’s paw, is an effigy of what some historians believe to be the original black cat, a stray that lived at SAFC’s legendary Roker Park Stadium during the early 1900s. An illuminated twilight setting emphasises the city’s monumental landmarks in this deconstruction of the city of Sunderland coat of arms.
