Celtic FC Foundation and Mary’s Meals are delighted to confirm there are still a limited number of places available on their brand new fundraising initiative, Miles for Meals, which will take place from June 9-11, 2022.
The event will involve a three-day trek, starting from where it all began for Mary’s Meals – ‘The Shed’ in Dalmally, Argyll and Bute – and ending at Paradise, the home of Celtic FC. Along the way, participants will join a large section of the West Highland Way, making this a wonderful scenic trek of around 60 miles.
Celtic FC Foundation and Mary’s Meals have a long-standing partnership which involved the building of 67 kitchens throughout Malawi and Zambia, helping to ensure nutritious meals are served to almost 45,000 hungry children every day.
Celtic FC Foundation and Mary’s Meals have also worked closely in recent years as Foundation volunteers provided vital assistance at schools in Malawi and Zambia, as part of our overseas volunteer trips.
Funds raised from this new initiative will be shared equally, with net proceeds devoted to supporting the work of both organisations in alleviating food poverty, locally and internationally.
Miles for Meals participants will depart on the morning of Thursday, June 9, 2022, setting off by coach from Celtic Park to ‘The Shed’ in Dalmally, where they will officially begin the trek. Leaving from there, they will spend three days walking through Scotland’s scenic hills and trails, joining the West Highland Way and arriving back at Celtic Park on foot on the evening of Saturday, June 11, 2022.
To participate in the Miles for Meals trek, participants must commit to raising a minimum of £500 (after entry fee) in support of the work of Celtic FC Foundation and Mary’s Meals. Upon registration we will provide a sponsorship pack and all participants will receive a Miles for Meals fundraising T-shirt.
Registration is now open HERE and the non-refundable registration fee is £50 per person. Participants must be aged 18 or over on the day of departure. Please ensure you read the TERMS AND CONDITIONS thoroughly, before registering.
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, upon confirmation of your registration and receipt of your registration fee.
The trip will include:
- One-way coach travel from Glasgow to Dalmally
- Shared allocated accommodation (twin, double, triple or quadruple rooms) on Days 1 and 2 (please note, we will endeavour to place those who sign up in pairs/groups together where possible but cannot guarantee this)
