Foundation, Amazon and the shifting crisis


A quick and easy win: Amazon are one of the few outlets still open and many of us are likely to use them in the weeks ahead.  If you select Celtic FC Foundation as your chosen AmazonSmile charity, they will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price to the Foundation.

With tens of thousands of Celtic fans mostly restricted to online shopping, that quickly aggregates up.  The Foundation is needed more today than at any point since its formation, anything we can do to fill the coffers will help.

Yesterday, Foundation chief executive, Tony Hamilton, said, “The situation for many of our neighbours has worsened in the past few days as this crisis has shifted. People are losing income, and with it their ability to feed themselves and their families.

“Our top priority is assisting with that in the communities where we have relationships with existing partner organisations.”

“Thanks to everyone who has made this possible for us. Even in such uncertain and difficult times, the consistency has been the selflessness of the Celtic support who have stepped up to offer assistance when it’s needed.”

The money pledged for our Covid-19 response now stands at £175k.  There are difficult and uncertain times for everyone, but no club in Britain has responded as comprehensively.

And remember: AmazonSmile, it costs you nothing……

  1. Good morning friends and a Big Stay Safe and Happy Friday from a grey and drizzly East Kilbride. Great to see the trickle of former contributors returning to the Blog. Long may that continue. Maybe, just to know who’s still safe and sound we should start a list, a morning roll call if you will. So, if you’re out there looking in, let the CQN community know you’re safe.

    Stupidity is what stupidity does, hundreds on St Kilda beach today


    because of the good autumn weather, Police had to clear the whole


    Peninsula shores.


    Judging by television pictures most of the idiots were between the


    18 to 30’s age groups.


    Feckin madness, Don’t give a feck attitude on display.


    I dispair.

  6. MM – total madness



    Same here in the UK, people flocking to beauty spots or going for walks with different pals each night. Hopefully now the Polis will stop ask for ID if they don’t have it fine them, if they have ID and 1 is a different address from the other fine them. No disrespect but £60 fine (as is being muted) will not do it, make it £500 and I bet they will fuckin listen.



    Only my opinion of course



    Stay safe

  10. I’m busier working from home than I am at work! Less chatting, less tea, less craic. Hence i haven’t been on here too often except to read the article when i take a break. I hope everyone is doing ok.

    Now reading ..A bhoy called Bertie.. what a man, what a


    player, little things coming out now as regards Big Jock being


    single minded about the team and how the players should


    put the club first and financial matters second.


    Amazing how so many world class players were prepared to


    stick with us despite all the money being earned elsewhere.


    Only our club could manage this and i put it down to the


    Celtic family.

    I have been using Tesco home delivery for around 18 months, and I see THIS MORNING Online that they finally have Booking Slots available for next week, but you cant order more than 80 items.


    In the last few days Tesco have been urging folk with transport to go to their bigger stores and/or use their Click and Collect scheme.


    It appears that some folk are following that advice, as I was happily surprised to be be able to Book a delivery slot for this Monday morning, as recently there was no booking slots available for 3 weeks or so.



    This is now my 8th Day of Self Isolation ( I think ?)……Does anyone know where I can get a GIRL FRIDAY ?


    Stay safe everyone.



  17. Morning BT, cheers


    Hope you the girls and extended family and friends are safe and well. 👍



    Jobo I hope my post to Lazy dynamite gave you the list idea💡.



    Hope you and the family are well too.


    Keep up the good work, 👍

    All about timing my Fhriend…


    You and everyone else stay safe…


    Until we meet again…


    Keep the Faith!


    Hail Hail!




    I would like to believe that EVERY Celtic player at this time can afford to RENT/BUY Gym equipment to set up in their homes ?


    Treadmills, Weights etc…and maybe our Celtic Bhoys will be able to keep up a fair bit of Fitness ahead of other Clubs ?


    Maybe Celtic FC could BULK Rent/BUY from these fitness companies in these worrying times , so that every Celtic player will be largely responsible for their own fitness ?

    Just make sure your girl Friday doesn’t come till Monday lol.

  21. Good evening Bhoys and Ghirls, a wee update on TET’s (Keith) funding, the story is best put by his wife:



    My son Niall Emslie booked his wedding at the Carmelite in Aberdeen for the 4th of Aug. Due to a change is circumstances- Mainly myself being terminally ill and the societal side-effects of this Corona virus. They wanted to cancel the wedding and get married quickly in the registry office



    The bride, Sharon, as from Monday will possibly have to stay at home to look after 3 children. Niall is self-employed in construction, so he gets nothing when the building sites close.



    I have now been informed the Carmelite is now sold (research to Concordia Hospitality a very large company) and they will not be refunded. The reply from the Carmelite was – they should have read the papers!



    Leonard Curtis Business Rescue – Recovery who are the administrators should have informed the ‘little people their deposits and cash were not safe. At no time were they informed about change of hands.



    I do not have the luxury of a postponed wedding as I am terminally ill (medical notes can be provided) and they need their money refunded to survive. The Carmelite have been no help whatsoever and they have now lost the 1700 deposit. Even though a payment was taken two days prior to the hotel going into administration.



    I write his as the grooms mum. I don’t haven’t the luxury of waiting till next year. With an inoperable aneurysm my time is limited. Dying doesn’t frighten me, my only wish is to know that Niall and Sharon are married. Niall has worked on these past two weeks with a shattered finger against medical advise to pay for this wedding. These kids have done nothing wrong but have been emotionally and financially destroyed.



    I know it is a trying time for all. If we could raise the money the LOST. They could get married and still have a little financial backup for the children.



    Thank you Jan Emslie.



    TET has been a fantastic contributor to LMS from its inception and indeed gave some of his winnings to charity.


    Difficult times ghuys for us all but I am confident you will step up to the plate.

    I posted on SC yesterday that I would repost Jan and Keith’s story today, but no need as you have done so.



    Take care and God bless.

  23. I once had a mate who had a very small lake and Palm Trees on his head……


    I asked him…” What is that on your head” ?


    He replied…”Its a Beauty Spot ” !








    Very good my friend, that made me chuckle.




    HERALD today going with davie cooper.



    Do you ever stop to imagine being a hun.

  25. Dogs walked and fed…………..



    A wee run beckons perhaps in glorious Corcaigh on a bright, clear,blue-skied day…..?



    We transplanted a sitka spruce yesterday, in the hope that Christmas leaves this crisis a distant memory.



    A thought occurred to me as were showing our appreciation for the care workers yesterday…..


    On top of the good work of the Celtic Foundation – perhaps the Club might consider showing it’s support annually to the doctors nurses and carers in our society?


    I think that would fit better with Our Story.



    Also, as a counterpoint to the Huns, para-sending Paras in the annual Armed Farces spektakular, beluv’d of the Oranj Odour acolytes – it would underline our values in a more fitting manner………..



    A Healthier CSC………
