Teaming up with the Foundation of Light
It gives us great pleasure to announce that we have made a further donation of £10,000 to Sunderland’s Foundation of Light.
Our donations, which now total more than £20,000, support the Tackle It and Making Moves programmes offered by the charity, which specialise in delivering disability sports coaching as well as social education sessions, covering everything from racism and bullying to substance abuse.
The contributions we have made so far have given an additional 400 young people access to sport through the charity’s programmes. A number of ScS employees were able to witness first-hand the impact that we have been able to make, at Portland Academy in Sunderland.
A presentation took place on Saturday, with David Haughan of ScS handing over a cheque to Philip King, Head of Commecial and former player and the foundation’s ambassador, Jimmy Montgomery, representing our support.
David said: ‘Whilst our employees are really passionate about sofas and carpets, they’re also passionate about supporting others. The Foundation of Light’s mission and the passionate and dedicated people who help deliver it, are a perfect match with the core values and culture at ScS.’
In addition to our donations, employees at our Head Office in Sunderland have been able to raise more funds through dress-down days, in aid of the Foundation of Light.
