Get involved with Christmas Appeal supporter fundraising

CELTIC FC Foundation are calling on the Celtic Family to get creative this Christmas.

We launched our 2014 Christmas Appeal last month and our target is to provide a proper Christmas meal for around 200 local families and ;gifts for the younger family members, who otherwise would go without. If we don�€™t help them, there might not be a Christmas in those households.

We are also looking to support local charities who care for those experiencing the torment of homelessness or other disadvantage.

We know the Celtic support ;is second to none and has a unique reputation when it comes to honouring Brother Walfrid�€™s founding principles and helping those in need.

So we are asking you to get creative and come up with your own fundraising ideas to support the Appeal! Can you think of a sponsored activity you could arrange or take part in? Or maybe an event to be hosted in your home, local church, social club or anywhere else you can think of?

If so, please get in touch by email ;[email protected] ;or phone 0141 551 4321 and we will provide you with a fundraising pack, including summary of our Appeal and either a sponsor form or letter confirming your support. ; We will also note your initiative on our website.

Please help us brighten up lives and reach our goal this Christmas.

Those individuals and charities we are looking to support through the 2014 Christmas Appeal are:

  • Around 200 local families (a Christmas meal and gifts for the children)
  • Glasgow East Women�€™s Aid (Gifts, toys and family outings gifts for those in the refuge)
