Enchanted Forest and Friends join Ghirls for Good

CELTIC FC Foundation are delighted to announce Enchanted Forest and Friends as sponsor of this year’s Ghirls for Good ladies lunch, a key event within out 2015 Christmas Appeal.

Enchanted Forest and Friends is a new and refreshing children’s brand, whose ethos is adventure, creativity, exploring, learning, getting out and having fun.

They offer limited edition ranges for boys and girls to wear, as they set off to create and enjoy new adventures of their own!

Having spent their energies, building the award-winning Enchanted Forest Early Learning Nurseries, Bernie and Mariessa Devlin’s world changed on June 14, 2012 with the arrival of their beautiful daughter Roisin, a sister for her brothers.

Over time, a particular soft toy, a bunny, became Roisin’s comforter and companion. ‘Bun Bun’ travelled everywhere with her and they had adventures aplenty.

This, coupled with the idea of what could be behind the Enchanted Forest door in the established nurseries logo, was the inspiration behind Enchanted Forest and Friends.

Tony Hamilton, CEO of Celtic FC Foundation said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Enchanted Forest and Friends on board and I would like to thank Bernie and Mariessa Devlin for their wonderful support of Celtic FC Foundation over a number of years.

“As the primary essence of our Christmas Appeal is to help children and their families, I believe our relationship with Enchanted Forest and Friends is a perfect match for our Ghirls for Good event.”

Bernie Devlin added: “We are delighted to sponsor this event and continue our positive relationship with the Foundation.

“Our life’s work has been around supporting, developing and educating babies, toddlers and young children.

“Enchanted Forest and Friends is a new journey where we want to bring happiness, adventure and creativity through our fashion and accessories brand to young children as they themselves can identify with our characters.”

Ghirls for Good – an afternoon of fabulous festive fun, fizz and frolics – will take place in the Kerrydale Suite at Celtic Park on Saturday, December 12. Kick-off time is 11.30am for 12noon.

The event will include a glass of fizz on arrival, delicious Christmas lunch, auction, raffle, entertainment, a festive DJ, an opportunity for some last minute Christmas shopping and of course, a visit from the main man himself, Santa Claus.

We will also ask each gorgeous Ghirl to bring along a gift for a local child and these will be distributed to those who are sick or disadvantaged before the sleigh bells ring on Christmas Eve.

So dig out your party kit Ghirls and join us for what is sure to be a magical, heart-warming afternoon to celebrate all that is wonderful about the Celtic Family.

The cost for a table of 10 is £450 or places can be purchased on an individual basis at £45pp.

To make a reservation, please call 0141 551 4262 or email [email protected]

All funds raised will support our 2015 Christmas Appeal, which reflects the very essence of why our club was set up back in 1887.

The appeal will help local families who face poverty and hardship and a number of charities who care for those experiencing the torment of homelessness or other disadvantage.

Please help us brighten up lives and reach our goal this Christmas. Thank you so much for your wonderful support!
