Have I just read that headline right is what you are thinking. Have you ever fancied sleeping at Valley Parade? Do you think it would actually be possible to sleep at Valley Parade, one of the most famous grounds outside the Premiership? Would you jump at the chance if an opportunity arises to spend a night at the ground, soak up the atmosphere of the large capacity stadium on a none match day, ever wondered what it may be like to see the sun rise at your favourite stadium.
Well, if you have answered yes to any of those, your dreams may come true. With Xmas around the corner or if someone’s birthday is around this time of year, this may just be a birthday gift experience with a difference, well it possibly may be a once in a lifetime opportunity to actually spend a night and sleep at Valley Parade.
Want a unique experience?
There will be a range of entertainment throughout the evening and for those that are a bit peckish, a hot dinner will be provided also and refreshments. After a once in a lifetime night’s sleep at Valley Parade breakfast will be provided all thanks to a charity organisation called Centrepoint.
Sleep Out Bradford
Sleep out Bradford is a charity event organised by Centrepoint helping young homeless people between 16-25 years old, the charity provides them accommodation, teaches them life skills and learn how to live independently. But where does Bradford City come into this? After receiving another newsletter with a pic of Ian Ormondroyd promoting the event, I actually thought, this is a great cause. Less people on the streets is only a good thing for everyone especially the ones living it day in day out.
