Club sponsors show support to foundation Christmas appeal

With our Christmas Appeal now in full swing, we would like to thank Club sponsors Dafabet, Magners and Intelligent Car Leasing, for the wonderful support shown to this year’s Appeal.

It kicked off on Saturday, November 5 with a £10K donation from the Club and, thanks to the tremendous backing of both Dafabet and Magners, the Celtic first team sported our Appeal logo and Football for Good branding on their shirts for the cinch Premiership 4-2 victory over Dundee United.

In addition, Dafabet kindly provided a VIP matchday experience for 10 people in their private suite, for this year’s Christmas Appeal Prize Draw. Through the Prize Draw, we’re offering the chance for the winner and nine lucky guests to take in Celtic’s cinch Premiership encounter with Heart of Midlothian on Saturday, February 25, 2023 (fixture date subject to change) in the comfort of the Dafabet Suite. You can find out more and purchase your ticket for the Draw HERE.

Intelligent Car Leasing have also generously got behind our activities across the season, having gifted their LED advertising space at Celtic Park, as they have done in previous years. During the festive period, this gives us a fantastic opportunity to promote the Christmas Appeal. They also made a financial contribution to the Appeal and raised further funds through the donation of a fantastic matchday experience for four in the Walfrid Restaurant for the UEFA Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk back in October, which was auctioned through our eBay charity account.

Tony Hamilton, Celtic FC Foundation Chief Executive said: “This year’s Christmas Appeal has been more challenging than ever but, yet again, the Club sponsors have shown outstanding support of our efforts, making a number of invaluable contributions.

“Dafabet, Magners and Intelligent Car Leasing all provide wonderful backing to the Foundation all year round in a variety of ways and by stepping up again to help over the festive period, it makes a huge difference to the lives of others. We’re truly humbled by their continued and invaluable support.”

Through our Appeal, we want to give hundreds of families in our communities the Christmas they deserve, making sure there’s food on the table and gifts under the tree.

We also aim to help pensioners, women and children in refuge, the homeless community and refugees – as well as a whole host of others facing poverty and hardship.

The generosity and compassion of the Celtic support is truly unsurpassed and we simply cannot make a difference to the lives of so many without you.

Together, we can Share the Magic this Christmas.
