Beacon Building Boost!

tombola has a firm commitment, nay love, for Sunderland, and this has been further demonstrated by the company’s £500,000 donation to the new Beacon of Light building, currently being constructed next to the Stadium of Light. This fantastic initiative will provide education and training facilities with an indoor football pitch above. Here are some words from our CEO Phil Cronin to explain why tombola have got involved:


“The Foundation of Light has an enviable track record in delivering pioneering education and sport programmes across the region and I’ve always been inspired and impressed by the work they do in the region. “The powerful mix of sport, health and wellbeing, alongside education and training makes the Beacon a unique proposition, so I’m delighted we’re backing the Foundation to make a meaningful difference to even more people’s lives in the future. “It’s a really exciting time for tombola and the Beacon as we are both ambitious to do grow and expand – and will both open landmark new head offices close to one another in 2018.”
