These presentations were followed by Steve and Neil from Sunderland FC who spoke inspiringly about the Programme of Light, the outreach programme employing 153 people in training, workshops, health campaigns, children's visits....... in an area still considerably affected by economic adversity. These programmes reach out to people in need of them. The commitment and dedication to this work was impressive. FOGS would like to wish the Stadium of Light continued success with these many and varied schemes! Two other fans of football, one for Sunderland and one for Manchester United spoke of the health benefits of being passionate supporters!
FOGS thanks Richard for this platform to speak and to share community experiences. A full report and photos should appear in the Glossop Chronicle!
