City staff are calling for supporters to join them and ‘sleep out’ at the Northern Commercials Stadium, later this month.
On Thursday November 22, the club will host its second Sleep Out to raise money for Centrepoint, a charity which support 150 homeless young people aged 16-25 in Bradford every single day.
The charity helps by providing 16-25 year olds with accommodation and support to help people turn their lives around by gaining essential life skills, such as tackling physical and mental health issues and moving into education and or employment.
All funds raised at the event will be used to introduce the Centrepoint Sport Training Centre Programme in Bradford.
Centrepoint Sport is a programme which uses Street Football to improve the emotional wellbeing, resilience, motivation and self-confidence of young people who are homeless or at risk and turn their lives around.
Registration is just £20 - and the fundraising target is £200.
City’s head of operations Paula Watson said: “Last year, the event was a huge success and raised over £30,000 for Centrepoint.
“We are delighted to continue our support and host our second Sleep Out.
“Centrepoint provide life-changing support for those who are less fortunate than ourselves and we are looking forward to doing our bit to help raise awareness and funding for what is a growing issue in this day and age.
“There is more to the club than what happens on the pitch. Behind the scenes, we do our best to engage with the community and show our support.
“This is a great opportunity for us to meet with others in the community and celebrate the work Centrepoint do.
“We are encouraging supporters to take part in this great event and help us make a difference in the city.”
On the evening, various activities will take place within the Northern Commercial Stadium’s concourse - including live music.
Food and drink will be available for those taking part, in addition to mats being provided to sleep on.
As part of signing up for the event, Paula Watson and Isabel Pitts - members of City’s off-field team - have created an online donation page which goes straight to the charity.
