Christmas Appeal promoted on screens throughout Glasgow

As the Christmas Appeal phase of our Football for Good Fund (FFGF) continues, Celtic FC Foundation are honoured to have received incredible support once again from out-of-home digital media provider, Ocean Scotland. The wonderfully generous donation of advertising space on their screens across Glasgow will help promote the Appeal far and wide.

Ocean Scotland operate some of the UK’s most prestigious out-of-home advertising locations and have been a tremendous supporter of Celtic FC Foundation over a number of years. Back in July, they showed outstanding generously by providing advertising space to highlight our FFGF.

Once again, they have provided their magnificent backing, with complimentary advertising space for our Christmas Appeal at 23 different locations throughout the city, as of today.

Speaking of the support provided, Celtic FC Foundation Chief Executive, Tony Hamilton, said: “I would like to extend our gratitude to Ocean Scotland, who have yet again shown phenomenal support of Celtic FC Foundation.

“Their donation of advertising space in July to promote our FFGF, was absolutely crucial in helping us to share the message of the impact made until that point. Their support on this occasion will be just as important, as we aim to encourage as many of our supporters as possible – who are in a position to do so – to get involved in our Christmas Appeal.

“A huge thank you to Chris Trainer, Marc Keenan and the team at Ocean Scotland for all of their support.”

Through the Appeal, we want to help hundreds of local families, giving them the kind of Christmas most of us take for granted. With lots of food on the table and gifts for the kids. Making sure Santa pays a visit on Christmas Eve, despite COVID-19.

We also want to support pensioners on our doorstep, by lending a hand at a difficult time of year. Local charities need our help too. 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 Christmas Appeal phase of the FFGF.

We are a Club like no other, and together, we can continue to bring comfort to those who need it most.
