SCOTTISH FOOTBALL SUPPORTERS ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP WITH
SOCIAL BITE’S ‘SLEEP IN THE PARK’ EVENTS
NATIONAL FANS ORGANISATION BACKS SUPPORTERS OF ALL CLUBS TO HELP HOMELESSNESS CAMPAIGN
11th October 2018: A partnership has been announced between Social Bite and the Scottish Football Supporters Association (SFSA) designed to offer a grassroots football response to the national campaign to help to see an end to homelessness in Scotland.
The SFSA will campaign across the football landscape to ensure this important society issue is recognised and supported by football fans of all clubs.
Paul Goodwin of the SFSA said: “We know that homelessness is a blight on our society and we believe that many of our members will want to join in this campaign to highlight the issue and to help find a solution. Football is a key part of the fabric of our society and a very strong message would be sent out from our football family by our members wearing their club scarves as they participate in the ‘Sleep In The Park’ events in December.”
Josh Littlejohn, Founder of Social Bite said: “Social Bite believe a Scotland where everyone has a safe place to call home is possible. We are working very hard through our Sleep In The Park campaigns to see an end to homelessness in Scotland. This partnership with the SFSA is a great way for us to demonstrate that football fans across the whole of Scotland care about this issue. We look forward to seeing the colours of many teams at our events in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow on Saturday 8th December.”
