And the club has announced the players will wear special warm-up T-shirts and playing shirts carrying the Foundation of Light logo.
Craig Shields, Great Annual Savings Group’s operations director said: “We are a business which closely monitors our impact and we launched our own foundation in 2021, which works towards similar goals as the Foundation of Light for the better of communities in Sunderland and County Durham.

Alex Neil said: “Give a Quid is a fantastic campaign to support our communities and make sure that those who need help get it.
“The Foundation do amazing work in the community and if each fan in the Stadium donated £1, we could hit our target and collectively make a real difference to local lives.”
Lesley Spuhler, chief executive of the Foundation of Light, added: “As a Foundation at the heart of our communities, we are here to help and make sure that the most vulnerable get the support they desperately need.
“Whether it’s delivering food parcels, teaching families how to cook healthy meals on a budget, telephone befriending or providing free access to IT equipment, we are working with partners to provide critical services and interventions to thousands across Sunderland, South Tyneside and County Durham.”
The special edition shirts will be signed and auctioned after the match to raise vital funds for the campaign.
The club’s last meeting at The Stadium of Light was a dramatic one. Aiden McGeady had given Sunderland an early lead thanks to a deflected shot from 20 yards. However, Alex MacDonald equalised just before the half-hour mark as his volley from the edge of the area found the bottom corner.

That lead lasted 15 minutes after Robbie Cundy was judged to have fouled McGeady.
Grant Leadbitter saw his spot-kick initially saved, but the rebound sat perfectly for him to head home on the goal line. Gills battled the entirety of the second half to find a leveller, and they found it in the dying moments of the game.
Vadaine Oliver managed to flick the ball into the path of Jordan Graham, who rounded Lee Burge before blasting his effort into the roof of the net.
