Capstone Foster Care was delighted to help a local junior football team by sponsoring their team’s kit ‘Beacon Rangers Junior Football Club’.

Beacon is Southowram’s local football club, which values teamwork, sportsmanship, and positive encouragement. The club has limited resources, and the donation made by Capstone will make a genuine difference for the players.

We have received a lovely letter re the kit sponsorship from Nigel Freeman, Chairman of the Beacon Rangers Junior Football Club;

“This is to formally thank Capstone Foster Care for the sponsorship of Beacon Rangers Junior Football Club for the 2016/2017 season .Thank you once again. Capstone’s sponsorship is genuinely helping children in the local area”

If you wish to follow and support this local team you can find them through their new website and Facebook page:

As requested by the carers and the children, we had a change this year from our usual festivities and arranged a party for the children, greatly enjoyed by them all, plus the staff and carers! We had lots of activities – face painting, cake decorating, Christmas tree decoration making, placemat colouring, disco and karaoke plus a visit from Santa in his grotto! After all the fun, the children were re-energised with tasty pizzas. Many thanks to foster carers, Sharon and Steve for organising the hall and the DJ and to their daughter for doing the face painting. Also a massive thanks to Santa and to all the staff and their friends and family for helping and contributing to the success of the day– a great example of teamwork!



Saddleworth Sonics are a basketball team based in the North West, they’ve played together for a number of years but unfortunately team funds haven’t managed to stretch far enough to update their kit. Capstone Foster Care has a keen interest in this team due to family involvements and decided to surprise the team by sponsoring a brand new kit to make them feel special, this was handed to them last Friday.Read what the parents had to say…

“The parents of Saddleworth Sonics basketball team have said: Thank you to Capstone Foster Care for sponsoring the kit, they played in it on Friday evening (lost the game!) but they are 15-16 yr olds playing in an under 18s league so doing ok. It was nice to see them in a matching kit.”

Catherine Lockett, Regional Director (North) at Capstone said it was a pleasure to hand the team their new kit, the team beamed with pride to wear the kit and spirits where high throughout the night.
