Christmas Appeal 2020
We are delighted to launch the Christmas Appeal phase of the Football for Good Fund (FFGF) and once again, the Club has kicked off the campaign with a wonderful donation of £10,000.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 has been a horrendous year for so many of us.
The Foundation’s response was to launch the FFGF in March, which is edging towards £1m and has helped provide food and essentials to thousands of those who are most in need within our communities.
The Christmas Appeal phase started on November, 6, exactly 133 years since the formation of Celtic Football Club, in St Mary’s Church Hall in East Rose Street, in the Calton.
The crippling effects of the pandemic have added unbearably to the pressures already associated with the festive period, with more and more people experiencing bleak times.
Through the Appeal, we want to help hundreds of local families facing poverty, by giving them the kind of Christmas most of us take for granted.
We also want to support pensioners on our doorstep and help out local charities. We can make a massive difference to the lives of children, the homeless, refugees and those living in refuge or facing other challenges.
The generosity and compassion of the Celtic Family is truly unrivalled and once again, we are looking for your support, to get behind this year’s Christmas Appeal.
We are a Club like no other, and together, we can continue to bring comfort to those who need it most.
