Tony Hamilton, CEO of Celtic FC Foundation, said: “This will be a wonderful event and one that I have every faith will demonstrate and honour the core essence of our Club.
“Lisa has supported us on a number of occasions and we are delighted to be working with her again to benefit local children and young people through our projects and individuals and families via the wonderful care provided by Marie Curie.”
Lisa, fiancee of Celtic star Kris Commons, has committed to raising a phenomenal total of £30,000 for the Marie Curie in Glasgow, during her 30th birthday year. Marie Curie offer expert care, guidance and support to people living with any terminal illness. This is provided via the hospice in Glasgow and also through around the clock care in people’s homes from a host of Marie Curie nurses.
Lisa Hague said: “Since we moved to Glasgow, I have been totally overwhelmed by the support and compassion of the Celtic Family. It is completely unique and like nothing I have ever experienced before.
“The charitable heritage of the Club is what sets it apart and it’s been an honour and a privilege to get involved with the work of Celtic FC Foundation and the fantastic support they provide to those who need it most in our local communities.
“To celebrate my 30th birthday, I committed to raising £30k for Marie Curie, an exceptional charity which provides end of life care and support in our city. I’m so proud to be one of their ambassadors.
“I am continually inspired by both Celtic FC Foundation and Marie Curie and I hope the Celtic Family can pull together to get behind this event. After all, we have a lot to celebrate this season!”
Marie Curie Fundraising Manager, Murray Easton, added: “Lisa is a true star; kind-hearted and full of energy and ideas that are making a hugely positive difference to Marie Curie and other charities in Glasgow.
“Lisa is set to raise at least £30,000 for Marie Curie within three months – a phenomenal achievement that will allow us to provide up to 2,000 hours of end of life care and support to people and their families in Glasgow.
“This party at Celtic Park will be an opportunity to say thanks, celebrate Lisa’s birthday and her marvellous fundraising achievements.”
