Celtic sleep-out events set for Glasgow and London

CELTIC FC Foundation are delighted to announce details of our November Sleep Out events in Glasgow and London, both of which are integral elements of our 2018 Christmas Appeal.

The Glasgow event returns for a fourth consecutive year following the outstanding efforts of our supporters since 2015. Last year saw the introduction of our first ever London Sleep Out event and, following its great success, the event returns for a second year.

Participants at each event will spend the night – from 10.00pm until 6.00am – battling the elements outdoors, under the stars, all for a wonderful cause.

All we ask is that you commit to raising a minimum of £130 (after entry fee) for Celtic FC Foundation’s 2018 Christmas Appeal.

Places for both events are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The non-refundable registration fee is £30 per person.

Registration is now open for both Glasgow and London and the key details are:

Celtic Park is our home and the natural location for the Glasgow event but the London venue also holds huge historical and emotional significance for the Celtic Family.

In 1892, five years after his leading role in the formation of Celtic Football Club, the Marist Order moved Brother Walfrid from Glasgow to the Whitechapel area of London’s East End.

Over the next 15 years, as Head Teacher at St Anne’s Primary, Brother Walfrid transformed the school and also established local boys’ clubs and a project to provide meals to the poor in the local community.

Due to anticipated severe weather conditions, these events will be exceptionally challenging, both mentally and physically. Therefore, participants must be aged 18+ and be in an appropriate physical condition to take part.

Celtic FC Foundation will provide a ground mat and foil sheet/blanket but participants are required to bring the appropriate equipment and wear relevant clothing and footwear.

All funds raised from these events will support our 2018 Christmas Appeal, which reflects the very essence of why our club was set up back in 1887.

The Appeal will help local families and pensioners who face poverty and hardship and a number of charities who care for those experiencing the torment of homelessness or other disadvantage. So please follow in the footsteps of Brother Walfrid and help us make a difference to the most vulnerable in our community this Christmas.

Thank you so much for your wonderful support.
