Beacon of Light gets set to welcome hundreds of children and families

The Beacon of Light is ready to welcome hundreds of children and families as the ever-popular Summer at the Beacon programme returns to Wearside for the six-weeks holidays.

As well as a comprehensive range of football and multi-sport holiday courses, Summer at the Beacon features various new and exciting activities including:

  • Girls only Football - Exactly what it says on the tin!
  • Inspires Changemakers - For girls to develop their leadership skills and take part in exciting challenges.
  • Toddler Tastes - Join us in the kitchen with your little ones for some cooking fun.

Speaking about the Summer at the Beacon campaign, Foundation of Light Managing Director, Jamie Wright said: "Summer at the Beacon is an incredibly popular event in Sunderland and we’re super excited to welcome hundreds of people through the doors at the Beacon of Light.

“We have loads going on, numerous activities on offer to people of all ages as well as a variation of activities to suit a wide-range of interests.

“This is a very important event to us here at the Foundation and we are determined to make it an unforgettable experience to everyone who attends."

Over the last 20 years, Foundation of Light have supported over half a million people to live happier and healthier lives. By taking part in activities at the Beacon, you’re supporting your local community – proceeds from the Beacon are passed to the Foundation to improve local lives throughout the community.

The Beacon of Light will also be hosting a FREE ‘FoL Community Fun Day’ on 11 August, from 10am – 3pm. Once again, various activities will be on offer meaning families will be entertained at the ultimate community hub. All you have to do is turn up and have fun.
