Signed Sunderland AFC memorabilia up for grabs in latest 'Heart on your Sleeve' prize draws
The latest round of ‘Heart on your Sleeve’ Crowdfunder prize draws have gone online, with some great Sunderland AFC prizes up for grabs.
Donations earn entry into our draws for a selection of money-can’t-buy prizes – including a Jack Clarke signed shirt and print bundle, a 2014-15 SAFC home shirt signed by John O’Shea and Wes Brown, and a pair of boots signed by Luke O’Nien.
‘Heart on your Sleeve’ is a campaign encouraging Sunderland AFC supporters to come together to help and inspire one another.
North East football fans are notorious for their passion and SAFC’s official charity hopes to channel that energy to help make a difference to lives across Wearside.
Recent studies have shown that health inequalities in the UK are getting worse, with the gap between the North East and the South of England worsening.
People in communities across our region are living shorter lives; spending most of them in poor health.
Foundation of Light works with up to 20,000 young people and families every year and aim to tackle these issues, encouraging parents and grandparents to stay both physically and mentally active to inspire the next generation to do the same.
Through various initiatives and programmes and links with Sunderland AFC, the Foundation gives families the opportunity to access sports and fitness sessions, mental health resources and experience the facilities at the Beacon of Light community hub.
The price to enter each draw is as follows:
- £5 for 1 entry
- £10 for 3 entries
- £20 for 7 entries
These donations will support the Foundation in the delivery of ‘Heart on your Sleeve’ during the 2023/24 season, and below is how your money can help:
- £5 would pay for a young person with a disability access to a sports session
- £8 pays for an older person to attend activities to stay socially active and improve physical and mental wellbeing
- £40 will pay for a young person to have access to sessions supporting their physical, mental, and emotional health
- £100 allows us to develop mental health resources to support up to five people

Foundation of Light and Alive and Kicking are bringing Sunderland AFC supporters the unique opportunity to design a football which will be produced and used at the Stadium of Light during our Foundation Matchday.
Penultimate month of 2023 culminates in Gala Awards Dinner, but there was plenty else happening at the Foundation of Light throughout November.
