Supporters to vote as Weatherseal and SPL launch first charity weekend
Posted 22 October, 2012
Weatherseal and the 12 Scottish Premier League (SPL) clubs today launched the league’s first official Charity Weekend. And for the first time, supporters 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.
Football Memories as part of Alzheimer 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, Weatherseal Charity Weekend. 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.”
Michael White Alzheimer Scotland Football Memories project manager said:
“Thousands of people with dementia love their football and Football Memories harnesses that passion for the game to improve their lives. We are therefore delighted to have the chance to take part in a charity weekend launched by the Scottish Premier League and Weatherseal.”
