CELTIC FC Foundation are delighted to confirm that our inaugural ‘Zip Slide in Paradise’ fundraising event is now sold out.

The event will take place on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at Celtic Park, as a magnificent 180 participants ‘Zip ‘n’ Slide’ from West to East, leaving from the Jock Stein Stand and enjoying the exhilarating 190m ride all the way across to the Lisbon Lions Stand, taking in the glorious site of the hallowed turf below.

Celtic FC Foundation’s four priorities are to improve Health, promote Equality, encourage Learning and tackle Poverty.

The net proceeds of this event will assist development of our work providing opportunities for local disadvantaged children and young people to take part in positive, healthy activities.

Examples of our current work in this area include:

Urban Stars
This youth diversionary project is now in its fourth year. It provides access to safe and positive activities for young people in our local communities, at hot spot times and in hot spot locations for crime. We currently deliver weekly on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings in Camlachie and Celtic Park. Activities include dance, football, arts & crafts and music.

Summer Games
This project provides safe, fun activities – including football, dance and fun inflatables – and a healthy meal for vulnerable children and young people during the school summer break. It also includes a variety of workshops to build confidence and self-esteem. The initiative is ring-fenced one day per week for children with Down’s Syndrome and their siblings.
