THERE was a special guest at the Lennoxtown Training Centre last Friday as X-Factor sensation, Gamu Nhengu, helped launch Celtic Charity Fund's 2011 Club Couture.
And joining the singer to publicise the fashion extravaganza were Celtic's very own Welsh choir in the shape of Joe Ledley and Adam Matthews.
The event, which is being sponsored by Scotshield Fire & Security, will raise money for Breast Cancer Care Scotland, and takes place at Celtic Park on October 15, 2011.
The evening will include a catwalk show featuring first-team players, a stunning set from Gamu Nhengu, a charity auction and raffle and three-course meal.
Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said: "This event is proving more and more popular every year. While the show is great fun, there is a real serious message to the event and we hope it will again raise substantial funds and more and more awareness of the issues concerning breast cancer in Scotland.
"Celtic has always been much more than a football club and we are proud that we continue to try and make a difference to the lives of so many through our important charitable work."
A spokesperson for Breast Cancer Care Scotland added: “We are absolutely delighted to be the main beneficiary of Celtic Charity Fund’s 2011 Club Couture Fashion Show.
"The evening itself is a glittering spectacular which highlights the latest trends and is not to be missed. But, more importantly, the funds raised from this fantastic event will allow Breast Cancer Care Scotland to support more people across the country who are facing a diagnosis of breast cancer.
"We would like to thank Celtic Charity Fund, their sponsor – Scotshield Fire & Security – and the supporters for their continued backing.”
Tickets for the Club Couture event are available by contacting 0141-551 4262 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The clothing and accessories on the night will be provided by House of Fraser.
Celtic Charity Fund, the charitable arm of Celtic Football Club, has now raised around £3.5million for a wide range of worthy local, national and international causes since its inception in 1995.
