Sleep Out Challenge
Cliftonville Football Club are pleased to endorse the upcoming Sleep Out organised by MACS.
The charity, which supports children and young people, have challenged members of the public to join them overnight at Victoria Park on Thursday, November 14 (7pm-7am).
A similar event last year raised £28,000, which was spent on much-needed front line housing and support services for those experiencing or facing homelessness.
Registration for next month’s Sleep Out costs £20 and is available online, with participants are asked to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship.
Reds captain Chris Curran, who will join record goalscorer Joe Gormley and a number of other Irish League stars in attending the occasion, said: “Sleep Out is a great way for people to stop and think what it must be like to face the prospect of sleeping outside. I’d urge everyone to try it and raise some funds for MACS, who really help young people escape the downward spiral of homelessness and to achieve brighter futures.”
Gormley reflected: “On the pitch, there’s a lot of rivalry between our teams but today has been a great opportunity to set all that aside and get together to support MACS in the great work they do to fight youth homelessness.”
