CELTIC FC Foundation are delighted to unveil the eagerly-anticipated badge design for this year’s matchday collection on Sunday, May 24.
The badge, which captures Celtic manager Ronny Deila’s trademark ‘Ronny Roar’, will be available outside the ground for a minimum donation of £2 from Celtic FC Foundation’s volunteers, ahead of the final home game of the season against Inverness Caley Thistle (KO: 12.30pm).
Forming an integral part of SPFL league trophy presentation day, the badge is a fitting tribute to the success of Ronny Deila – in his first season at Celtic Park – and his team, and represents the celebratory mood after a successful season for the club and Celtic FC Foundation alike.
Over the years, the club’s charitable arm has honoured the initial aims of our Founding Fathers and Brother Walfrid around alleviating poverty and supporting those who need it most.
In doing so, we concentrate on four key areas – Health, Equality, Learning and Poverty. Think HELP. Our ethos is to create opportunities and promote wellbeing for the most marginalised and disadvantaged people within our communities and we have a strong track record of delivering successful community-based projects across our four key areas.
Celtic FC Foundation will continue this drive to challenge issues around Health, Equality, Learning and Poverty, particularly on our own doorstep.
Speaking about the badge, Celtic manager, Ronny Deila, said: “Although I knew about some of the history of our great club before I became manager, I have been exceptionally proud to learn of the magnificent charitable work which continues to this day.
“It has been a pleasure to learn about the great efforts of Celtic FC Foundation in our communities and the impact of the projects being delivered across the four key areas of Health, Equality, Learning and Poverty.
“I’m delighted to lend my support to this year’s charity badge event on Sunday, May 24. It’s shaping up to be a wonderful day of celebration, culminating in Celtic being officially crowned SPFL Champions for the fourth season in a row.
“It’s only right that such a monumental day for the club and the supporters includes a charitable element and I have every faith the Celtic Family, as always, will get right behind this initiative. Thank you for your wonderful support.”
