Virtual Toy Drive

November 7, 2020 to November 21, 2020

Celtic FC Foundation are encouraging supporters to make a donation to cover the cost of a toy or gift for a sick or disadvantaged child, this Christmas.

Although the festive period is generally a happy and joyful time for most of us, many face financial hardship and the inability to meet the demands of Christmas. And the crippling effects of the pandemic have only added unbearably to the pressures, with more and more people experiencing bleak times.

As part of last year’s Appeal, we were able to pass on over 400 brand new toys and gifts which were donated by each attendee at our 2019 Ghirls for Good event, as well as via an allocation from St James’s Place Wealth Management, Glasgow. These were distributed by a host of wonderful partner organisations, who ensured that lots of Bhoys and Ghirls were the excited beneficiaries of a treasured Christmas gift.

Heartbreakingly, for some, it would be the only one they received.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will be unable to accept physical toy and gift donations this year. But we don’t want this to impact those children who desperately need our support.

Therefore, we are humbly requesting your assistance, via our Virtual Toy Drive, to help keep the magic of Christmas alive and ensure it’s a special one for so many deserving local children.

Supporters can donate whatever they can afford e.g. £10, £20, £30, etc. HERE and funds raised will be passed to our charity partners who provide support to sick and disadvantaged children. They will then carefully select specific toys and gifts for each child and these will be delivered before the sleigh bells ring on Christmas Eve.
