The EFL Day of Action highlights the work undertaken to tackle some of society's biggest issues, showcasing the work to tackle a diverse range of social issues, from homelessness and mental health, to community cohesion and the battle against plastic pollution.

Recently, the Boro squad were out and about across the local area visiting different community events, hosted by the MFC Foundation, as part of the charity's Week of Action.

Ashley Fletcher, Jonny Howson and Ryan Shotton joined in with over 30 adults from local day care centres for an afternoon of football with MFC Foundation coaches at the Herlingshaw Centre in South Bank.

Britt Assombalonga and Darren Randolph got creative with pupils from Thornaby Academy who were taking part in the Raise Your Game programme at the Riverside Stadium. 

Dani Ayala and George Friend surprised a class of pupils with learning difficulties from Abbey Hill School during their #iWill session with the Foundation.

Stewart Downing was over at John Emmerson Batty Primary School in Redcar to join a Premier League Primary Stars session and Mo Besic, John Obi Mikel, George Saville, and Lewis Wing, together with first team coach Curtis Fleming, welcomed 13 members of the Foundation’s Club Together programme for refugees and asylum seekers to Rockliffe Park.
