EARLIER this week, Scottish tennis star Andy Murray visited Celtic Park with his Davis Cup team-mates, for a special Crossbar Challenge.
Currently ranked No.3 in the world, Andy Murray is the British No.1, 2012 US Open Champion, 2013 Wimbledon Champion and reigning Olympic Singles Champion.
With 35 career titles, Andy is Britain’s most successful tennis player of the Open era, the first Briton to reach 500 ATP match wins and his maiden grand slam title ended Great Britain’s 76-year wait for a male grand slam champion.
In support of the work of Celtic FC Foundation, Andy very generously signed a hoops shirt, complete with ‘Murray 1’ on the reverse. This completely unique piece of sporting memorabilia is now up for grabs at http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/-/291565185164
The auction will close at approximately 7pm on Sunday, September 20, 2015.
All funds raised will be devoted to assisting those affected by the current refugee crisis through Celtic FC Foundation’s partnership with the British Red Cross in Glasgow and, in particular, its Europe Refugee Crisis Appeal.
Desperate families have no choice but to risk their lives to flee war and persecution. They urgently need food, water and medical care.
The Europe Refugee Crisis Appeal will support refugees and communities affected by the crisis across Europe, in neighbouring countries and the UK.
The Aegon GB David Cup Team have a semi-final encounter with Australia at the Emirates Arena from Friday, September 18 through to Sunday, September 20. Celtic FC Foundation would like to thank Andy Murray for his wonderful support and wish the GB Team every success against Australia this weekend.
