CELTIC’S first-team players took time out to show their support for Celtic FC Foundation’s 2015 Christmas Appeal.
In a special video, Stuart Armstrong, Dedryck Boyata, Craig Gordon and Charlie Mulgrew outlined the aims of this year’s Appeal, which strives to honour our founding principles and help those in our community who need it most, and asked supporters to give it their backing.
You can watch the players’ message here…
Celtic kicked off the Appeal last week with a wonderful £10,000 donation and we are already well on track to raising a further £10,000 through our inaugural Celtic Sleep Out event. What a magnificent start.
The Celtic supporters are famous for charitable giving and have responded to appeals to help those who need it most in the past.
Once again we are looking for your help. Everyone at the Club and the Foundation is asking you to back our Appeal, which epitomises the very essence of our Club and truly honours the founding principles of Brother Walfrid.
Please follow the Celtic Way to help us give back this Christmas.
