The club and its official charity recently announced a special fundraising campaign to help improve people’s mental health through the Foundation’s award-winning programmes.
One in 10 people in the North East will be diagnosed with depression and one in 10 children aged between 5-16 have a diagnosable mental health problem.
The Give a Quid campaign hopes to raise £30,000 to support work across the North East to improve mental health.
Donating by text is a quick and easy way to support the campaign with Foundation of Light receiving 95% of all money raised.
To make a £1 donation, text FOLQUID to 70085.
This will cost £1 plus a standard rate message depending on your service provider.
You must have the bill payer’s permission to use this service. If you are under 16 years old, you must have your parent or guardian’s permission.
Alternatively you can donate in person at the Beacon of Light or online at https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/FoLGiveaQuid
