Bower Fold To host Stalybridge Celtic Juniors Charity Match In Aid Of Save The Children

Stalybridge Celtic's Bower Fold is set to host a football match in aid of the Ukraine crisis and Save the Children.

Taking place on Saturday, the game will be contested between Stalybridge Celtic Juniors and their coaches.

Doors open at 2pm and the game will kick-off at 3pm. 

The charity provides children and their caregivers affected by the conflict with community centres and mobile outreach teams where they can receive psychosocial support. 

They also run programmes to develop positive coping strategies, life-skills and resilience.

Entry is a minimum £5 donation, under 16s go free with a paying adult.

Match organiser and Celtic Juniors volunteer coach Mark Nolan said “Seeing such harrowing scenes unfold in Ukraine and watching families forced to flee their homes, even children being split up from their parents in order to escape, we couldn’t turn the other way. I’m a junior coach and imagining my players going through anything like this is heartbreaking. Since suggesting the fundraiser the support has been phenomenal from everyone connected to junior club. Please come and support us on the day, or if you can’t make it we have a justgiving page where you can donate.”
