CELTIC FC Foundation’s share of the proceeds from this weekend’s duo of Jock Stein 30th Anniversary events will be devoted to assisting those affected by the current refugee crisis.
Our international aid charity partner is the Glasgow branch of the British Red Cross and, in particular, their Europe Refugee Crisis Appeal.
The Appeal will support refugees and communities affected by the crisis across Europe and in neighbouring countries. Families on a terrifying journey in search of safety desperately need food, water and medical care and the British Red Cross are responding on the ground.
There will be cash turnstiles for both sets of fans at East End Park today and tickets are priced at £12 for adults and £6 for concessions. Supporters are encouraged to get along early to avoid the queues.
The backing of the Celtic Family for both the match and the dinner, in tribute to our greatest ever manager, has been fantastic as always.
However, for supporters unable to attend the duo of events this weekend, there’s still an opportunity to get behind this crucial fundraising initiative. Donate HERE
Thank you for your wonderful support for those who need it most.
