ON Friday, May 25, the 51st anniversary of Celtic’s greatest ever triumph in Lisbon in 1967, Celtic FC Foundation are asking the Celtic family to commemorate the occasion by wearing something green and donating £5 to continue the Lions’ Legacy.
Fans can participate in Celtic FC Foundation’s Green Day by texting CELT07 to 70070 followed by £5 to donate and then tweeting a photo wearing any green item of clothing to @FoundationCFC.
The initiative follows on from the huge success of last year’s Lions’ Legacy campaign, which saw over £2million raised to support projects across the UK and beyond, through a series of events marking the 50th anniversary of the Lisbon triumph.
Proceeds from the Lions’ Legacy campaign are now supporting multiple community based initiatives. These include Dementia Care with several partners who are experts in this field, the building of 67 school kitchens in the developing world in partnership with Mary’s Meals, the development of our Ability Counts project for children, young people and adults with Down’s Syndrome and Autism, delivery of our Breaking Barriers project in East London and provision of support to The Forgotten Irish campaign, in partnership with the Ireland Fund of Great Britain.
Please get behind Celtic FC Foundation’s Green Day on Friday, May 25 and help ensure the continuation and development of these wonderful initiatives, in honour of Jock Stein and his Lisbon Lions.
