Well done to CQN’ers Eddie and Michael who answered the call from Glasgow, the Caring City, last week. They and a few others loaded 20 tons of clothes (and some soap products) onto the back of a truck, which arrived in Serbian on Monday. All clothes will be distributed to refugees before Christmas.
20 tons is a big truckload – enough to clothe 12,000 people. Getting practical help to people in crisis areas of the world is difficult for those of us sitting thousands of miles away, but Glasgow the Caring City make it possible for us to get involved. Warm weather clothing and personal hygiene products are a staple human right, but as you know, there many families are in flux this winter.
Absolutely delighted we have recalled Ryan Christie, from his loan at Inverness, where he has been since we signed him from them in August. Walking away from Celtic Park on Saturday, when we failed to create enough chances, thoughts immediately turned to Ryan, a creative mid. I wondered how long it would take for us to ‘recall’ him.
In the coming months he’ll need support as he managed the move away from home and into the metropolis, so give him 10 minutes before starting the online petitions!
