What is Walfrid's Wish

Since Celtic Football Club was formed in 1887, charity has paved the Celtic Way as our supporters continually celebrate and participate in the charitable traditions of the Club. Today, this core founding principle, is upheld and developed by Celtic FC Foundation.

Via our regular giving initiative, Walfrid’s Wish, we invite supporters to continue the legacy of Brother Walfrid by becoming a Champion of Celtic FC Foundation, and making a monthly contribution towards the continuation and development of our work challenging poverty, particularly in relation to food and fuel.

‘A football club will be formed for the maintenance of dinner tables for the children and the unemployed.’
(Brother Walfrid, November 1887)

To mirror the charitable vision of our Founding Father, monies raised through Walfrid’s Wish are devoted to supporting those, primarily on our doorstep but also further afield, who are facing poverty, via a number of initiatives.

Examples include: our Brother Walfrid community lunches, where we open our doors to welcome friends from the homeless community to Celtic Park; our School Games project which, on the surface, is an activity programme during the holidays but it also has an underlying purpose to feed and look after the most at-risk and vulnerable children within our communities, when school is closed.

“Walfrid’s Wish is very important to me and my family. My son and I were lucky enough to be a part of the Foundation’s Holiday Home Project. This allowed us to go on a well needed break, which without their help, would not have been possible. Through monthly giving I am able to continue supporting Celtic FC Foundation and the excellent work that I know they carry out.”

Daniel Haggerty

“One of the benefits of being a Walfrid’s Wish donor meant I was able to attend the recent Showcasing Event. When l listened to the speakers from various different projects, l felt so proud to be part of it, albeit in a very small way. I can’t praise the Foundation and all their volunteers enough. It is because of this larger collective effort that they are able to continue to do so much for those in need.”

Ronnie McCrear

“I believe that the work Celtic FC Foundation carries out is extremely important. The Foundation are addressing a number of societal issues via a variety of projects. Through Walfrid’s Wish, I’m able to contribute in a way that suits me best. The Foundation is an integral part of Celtic Football Club, which exists today due to Brother Walfrid’s determination to help others, and it is imperative that through the Foundation, this legacy lives on.”
