CELTIC FC Foundation are delighted to have been selected as a beneficiary of club sponsor Eden Mill’s fantastic new initiative – their ‘buy one give one’ hand sanitiser donation scheme.
In response to the current COVID-19 crisis, Eden Mill have altered their manufacturing process to create their first batch of hand sanitiser. Customers can buy a 250ml bottle online at £5 and, in doing so, they cover the cost of a bottle to be donated to a local hospice or other charity.
The first batch of 1,000 bottles to be donated will be shared between charities and hospices who all work in frontline support, including The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, CHAS Scotland and five different charities supported by Celtic FC Foundation; The Salvation Army (Parkhead), Spirit Aid, FARE Scotland, The Wayside Club and Glasgow’s Golden Generation
This scheme allows Eden Mill to continue the production of hand sanitiser for the public to buy affordably and to give bottles to charities for free, for as long as it is required throughout the current coronavirus crisis.
Celtic FC Foundation Chief Executive, Tony Hamilton, said: “This is an incredible initiative from Eden Mill, providing a vital product to those who are vulnerable during this crisis.
“Eden Mill have been a wonderful supporter of the Foundation on a regular basis and we are so grateful they have chosen to get behind our Football for Good Fund by delivering supplies of the new Eden Mill Hand Sanitiser to some of our partner charities.
“The Salvation Army (Parkhead), Spirit Aid, FARE Scotland, The Wayside Club and Glasgow’s Golden Generation are all providing critical food and essentials packages to the most vulnerable in our communities – families, pensioners, individuals who have suffered financially and the homeless.
“This magnificent donation of Eden Mill Hand Sanitiser will protect staff, volunteers and the beneficiaries of their selfless efforts. Thank you so much to Tony, Paul, Chiara and everyone else at Eden Mill for making such a difference in these unprecedented times.”
Eden Mill CEO Tony Kelly added: “When we realised that we could help the battle against this virus by making hand sanitiser, we knew it was something we absolutely had to do.
“We know how difficult it has been for the public to buy hand sanitiser, so we wanted to give them the opportunity to protect themselves and the people around them, while supporting local charities.
“We’re selling the bottles at the cost value of two hand sanitiser bottles, so that we can continue to produce more sanitiser and donate it to frontline care workers and charities offering crucial services, for as long as is needed during this critical time. There’s no limitations to the amount we’ll be able to make and donate.”
