SCOTTISH FOOTBALL FANS URGED TO THROW MONEY AT CHARITY THIS CHRISTMAS
3rd December 2018: Scottish football fans are being urged to throw money at a charity working towards ending homelessness this Christmas.
The Scottish Football Supporters Association (SFSA) has launched its ‘Don’t be a Tosser’ campaign in support of charity Social Bite’s ‘Sleep in the Park’ national campaign to help to see an end to homelessness in Scotland. It also acknowledges that the vast majority of football fans do not want to see bad behaviour at our grounds.
Paul Goodwin from the SFSA said: “This campaign is about encouraging every football fan to throw money to the great work being done by Social Bite at the festive period across the country. There have been some very concerning incidents involving a tiny minority of fans throwing coins during games recently and we know that the vast majority of fans were disgusted with that behaviour. We want to encourage fans to ‘toss’ their money towards the vital work that Social Bite does.”
The campaign was created by Gerry Farrell Ink and will run until the Big Sleep events are completed next weekend

The SFSA, which has nearly 71,000 members supporting clubs across Scotland, is Scotland’s fans’ representative in The Football Supporters Europe network (FSE), an independent, representative and democratically organised grass-roots network of football fans’ in Europe with members in currently 48 countries across the continent.
