Its that time of Year when we can give thanks for what we have, but of course, some folk out there have not.

The Celtic Charity Foundation are running a few events over Xmas including a special Ladies Lunch.

Details below, all contributions as always welcome:

CELTICS first-team players have got behind Celtic FC Foundation’s 2014 Christmas Appeal. Scott Brown, Craig Gordon and Adam Matthews thanked supporters for their incredible generosity to date and encouraged them to play their part in this year’s Appeal, which strives to honour our founding principles and help those in our community who need it most.

The Celtic Captain said: “Christmas should be a time of joy for all of us, but it can be difficult for many individuals and families, who face poverty, hardship and disadvantage.”

Craig Gordon commented: “Our target is to provide a proper Christmas meal for around 200 local families, who otherwise would go without, as well as giving gifts for the younger family members.

And Adam Matthews added: “If we don’t help them…there might not be a Christmas in those households. We are also aiming to support local charities who care for those experiencing the torment of homelessness or other disadvantage. 

“We have managed this in previous years but only because of your generosity. We urgently need the support of the Celtic Family to help us again this year.”

Celtic kicked off the Appeal recently with a wonderful £10,000 donation and we have already received further contributions totalling over £2,000. What a magnificent start.

The generosity and compassion of the Celtic Family is unique and unsurpassed, and Scott, Craig and Adam are requesting your support once again for an Appeal which epitomises the very essence of our Club and truly honours the founding principles of Brother Walfrid.

Please help us brighten up lives and reach our goal this Christmas.

Those individuals and charities we are looking to support through the 2014 Christmas Appeal are:

  • Around 200 local families (a Christmas meal and gifts for the children).
  • Glasgow East Women’s Aid (Gifts, toys and family outings gifts for those in the refuge).
  • Spirit Aid (Christmas hampers for those in need in the West of Scotland).
  • Glasgow Simon Community (we will host a Christmas lunch here at Celtic Park on Sunday, December 7).
  • Loaves and Fishes (a hot meal in the cold weather for the homeless and those living in poverty).
  • The Wayside Club Centre (a refuge and meal on Christmas day for the homeless).
  • Glasgow City Mission (support for their Older Men’s Club which provides food and companionship).
