THE doors at Celtic Park will open every week for people to enjoy a warm meal in a comfortable place as the cost-of-living crisis puts a strain on households. 

With rising costs continuing to affect people's budgets, the Celtic FC Foundation has decided to help alleviate pressures by opening the stadium lounge twice a week for those who need it.

Launching on January 30, the Paradise Pit Stop will be open every Monday and Thursday from 5pm to 7pm and will serve hot food and a range of hot and cold drinks.

Celtic FC Foundation’s chief executive, Tony Hamilton, said: “We recognise that many people are going through challenging times just now and that even being in employment doesn’t necessarily negate this. 

“For many, it’s a struggle to pay the household bills with anything left over, so we really hope that people in and out of work who could benefit from coming along take the opportunity to do so.”

Celtic chief executive Michael Nicholson added: “The club is delighted to support our foundation’s activities in this area, as we continue to try to find ways to support people in need, in line with the ethos and founding principles of the club.

“We hope that this project will make a positive difference in our community.”

The entrance to the Paradise Pit Stop is located at the North East entrance.
