Football clubs to host Xmas dinners
Sunday Mail 29
Football clubs are to offer festive cheer for elderly folk in their communities.
Dundee United, Hearts, Hibs, Montrose, Partick Thistle and St Mirren will host Christmas Day dinner.
More than 30 other teams, including Celtic, Rangers, Aberdeen, Arbroath and Elgin City, are hosting similar events on other days.
Most of the dinners are supported by SPFL Trust’s Festive Friends initiative.
Nicky Reid, CEO of the SPFL Trust, said:“To be able to offer a memorable day to older people who will likely spend Christmas Day alone is a special thing for us.”
