Foundation supporters invited to documentary screening

Tue 10th October 2017

Simon Community Scotland is inviting Rangers Charity Foundation supporters to a special screening of a documentary in Glasgow city centre.

Our Community Charity Partner will be showing the Channel 4 documentary 'Would you take in a stranger' which examines its Nightstop project on Thursday evening from 5.30pm until 7.30pm in the Virgin Money Lounge at 145-147 Queen Street.

The documentary features the personal stories of young people who are experiencing homelessness and volunteer host families who provide a few nights of accommodation to help young people get back on their feet.

Last season, the Rangers Charity Foundation donated £17,000 to Simon Community Scotland to fund the Nightstop project in Scotland after over 200 fans slept out overnight in Ibrox Stadium as part of the Big Ibrox Sleep Outs.

Nightstop targets 16 to 25 year olds who are in danger of sleeping rough and offers the help and advice this vulnerable group needs to move forward in a positive direction. 

The Nightstop service provides immediate support with 3 – 5 night’s emergency accommodation in the home of an approved Nightstop volunteer.  

Nightstop volunteers also provide a young person with a warm welcome, evening meal, breakfast and someone trusted they can talk to.

All supporters interested in how their donations have made a difference to Simon Community Scotland and those interested in becoming a Nightstop volunteer are invited to turn up at the Virgin Money Lounge on Thursday at 5.30pm. Following the screening guests are invited to join a short discussion and ask any questions they may have.
