Member News 7th December 2018
St Mirren FC Community Trust in conjunction with SPFL Trust and Salvation Army are delighted to announce they will be hosting a Festive Friends event within the stadium on Christmas Day.
Festive Friends is a wonderful community program created to accommodate elderly people, and those in need, who will be isolated and alone on Christmas Day. The event has been very positively received by other partner organisations within Renfrewshire such as RAMH, Active Communities, Shelter, ROAR, Renfrewshire Foodbank and Star Project who are all keen to nominate men & women they feel will greatly benefit from experiencing the day.
Our good friends at the Salvation Army have kindly offered to partner on the day and provide the wonderful hearty festive meal for all of our special guests and the great team at SPFL Trust have agreed to award funding towards some of the costings.
This very fun filled Christmas Day will commence at 12 noon where all of our senior Buddies will be shown into the 1877 lounge, we will have live music, games & entertainment, some special legends dropping by to share funny stories and great memories of St Mirren’s history, the provision of a delicious three course Christmas dinner from the Salvation army and a visit from father Christmas and the elves to provide a small festive gift.
The Salvation Army and all of St Mirren FC Women’s Team have kindly offered to volunteer on the day as we will require helpers in the lounge and more importantly volunteer driver’s to ensure the safe pick up and drop home of our Festive Friends.
St Mirren FC Community Trust wish to invite all of the fans, local community, business partners and friends to nominate individuals they wish to attend the event and nominations are now open, simply email email@example.com to enter.
To add to the magic and ensure the success of the day we will require small Christmas gifts to be donated and also additional funds to be raised. The more funds we raise and the more gifts we receive the more nominations we can accept. Should you wish to donate a gift please email firstname.lastname@example.org and to make a Festive Friends financial donation please use our Just Giving page details as given below.
Thank you for all of your support.
