Celtic FC Foundation Badge Day success at Paradise

Tuesday 15th May 2018

AS the curtain came down on another wonderful league campaign for the Magnificen7 champions, Celtic FC Foundation’s Annual Badge Day was once again a huge success, raising a net total in the region of £20,000.

The party atmosphere was in full flow ahead of kick-off as fans gathered to watch on the first team arrive for a welcome procession up the Celtic Way, led by Club Ambassadors Tom Boyd and Roy Aitken, carrying the SPFL trophy.

Organised in collaboration with our Supporters’ Committee and the Tommy Burns Skin Cancer Trust, Badge Day saw over 100 volunteers situated around the stadium, who had kindly donated their time to sell our latest pin badge.

Fans responded in their thousands once again, as they were eager to get their hands on this year’s badge which paid tribute to one of the Club’s most loved and cherished figures, Tommy Burns, marking the anniversary of his sad passing which was ten years ago today.

The badges are shaped in the number 10, which was so famously worn by Tommy, and feature the logos of both Celtic FC Foundation and the Tommy Burns Skin Cancer Trust. Net proceeds from Badge Day 2018 will be shared equally between the two charities.

Celtic FC Foundation Chief Executive, Tony Hamilton spoke of another hugely successful Badge Day, saying: “I must thank all of the wonderful Celtic FC Foundation and Tommy Burns Skin Cancer Trust volunteers, whose efforts ensured that this year’s Badge Day was such a great success.

“I’d also like to extend our thanks to our Supporters’ Committee who, as always, have played an integral part in the organisation of the event. Their efforts in the lead up to the event and on the day were incredible.

“Finally, I must say a huge thank you to all of the fans who bought and proudly wore their badges on Sunday. Tommy Burns had an incredible affinity with the Celtic support and their backing of Badge Day 2018 has been a tremendous tribute his memory. Thank you for your wonderful support.”

If you are interested in purchasing Celtic FC Foundation’s latest badge, priced at £2 each, there are a limited amount still available at the Celtic Superstore or they can be purchased online from our eBay account HERE
