Can you spot the ball?
22 October 2012
We've been nominated to be part of Weatherseal and SPL's first Charity Weekend - and you can help us by entering our Spot the Ball competition!
Weatherseal and the 12 Scottish Premier League (SPL) clubs today (Monday 22nd October) launched the league’s first official Charity Weekend.
We are delighted to be one of the charities chosen by the Scottish Premier League and Weatherseal to be involved in this exciting fundraising initiative
Graeme Brown, Director of Shelter Scotland
For the first time, supporters will have the opportunity to vote for their chosen charity that will benefit from activity at all league games on the weekend of 8th & 9th December, and Shelter Scotland has been shortlisted as one of the five charities for the voting process.
The chosen charity will benefit from collections at all fixtures. Weatherseal, the SPL’s official home improvement partner will also gift their marketing rights for that weekend. This includes advertising space and digital perimeter display boards.
Voting is now open via a dedicated website: www.weatherseal-charity.co.uk. The poll closes on 29th October.
Weatherseal managing director Tony Reilly said:
“Weatherseal is proud to be supporting this new initiative. This has been a season about supporters and I am sure they will help raise as much as possible for the chosen charity.”
SPL chief executive Neil Doncaster added:
"This is a great opportunity for supporters to have their say in this new project. I’d like to thank Weatherseal for generously supporting the weekend.”
Graeme Brown, director of Shelter Scotland, said:
“We are delighted to be one of the charities chosen by the Scottish Premier League and Weatherseal to be involved in this exciting fundraising initiative. You may not see Scotland’s homeless children on the street. Isolated and ignored, they’re hidden away in temporary accommodation. And every day our helpline hears more stories of cockroaches, health problems, bad landlords and bitter cold. It’s a disgrace. It’s an outrage. And we need your help to do something about it.”
For the voting week, we've created a special series of seven ‘spot-the-ball’ competitions to entertain voters and to introduce them to the charity’s work. Prizes for winners include commemorative Shelter Scotland merchandise. The spot-the-ball competition is available via the Shelter Scotland Facebook page.
