Gentoo Group strikes new partnership with local professional football club
Sunderland housing association Gentoo has become the official community partner of Sunderland AFC and Foundation of Light after signing a year-long partnership deal.
The partnership will bring together three of the city’s key anchor organisations to provide a range of exclusive events, activities and content for Gentoo tenants.
Nigel Wilson, Gentoo Group’s chief executive officer, said: “Sunderland AFC is an institution and we know how much the club means to our tenants, colleagues and people across the city.
“We’re excited to be working with the club to give our tenants the chance to watch their team win at home, and to access some exclusive content from their favourite players.
“Our work with Foundation of Light also means we can help our tenants to develop the skills they need for employment and to live healthy, active lives.”
In conjunction with Foundation of Light, the registered charity of Sunderland AFC, Gentoo will deliver activities aimed at helping its tenants build their skills for employment and facilitating engagement with young people.
Tony Davison, managing director of Sunderland AFC, added: “This is an exciting opportunity for us to work at the heart of the Sunderland community.
“Gentoo is a hugely important organisation to our city and we are delighted to be working alongside them and our Foundation to help them reach their goals.”
