Baroness Estelle Morris chats about the work of the charity.
Saturday's game at the Stadium of Light was designated Foundation matchday.
Each season the club's official charity, the Foundation of Light, chooses one game to showcase their programmes to give fans an insight into the work they do throughout the local community.
Every year they work with up to 45,000 young people and their families across the region, helping improve numeracy, literacy and well-being.
One of the Foundation's trustees, Baroness Estelle Morris speaks about how important the charity is and how vital it is to raise funds for such a worthy cause.
You can make a donation to the Foundation via justgiving.
