Foundation, Amazon and the shifting crisis

314

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……

    You can be 100% sure that there will be NO MENTION of the time during a game when Cooper THREW a Coin ( while playing for Rangers ) , back into the home support ( Falkirk or St Johnstone), that had been thrown onto the pitch and how that coin hit and injured a young Boy in the crowd.

     

    if memory serves me right Cooper was made to apologise to the Boy and his Father afterwards as the Boy needed Medical treatment for a Gash and lump on his forehead ?

  7. Because I do locum work I am self employed and so file a tax return, on time may I add. Last night I got an email from HMRC regarding support for the self employed – apparently you can start claiming from the beginning of June.

     

    So no urgency on the Government’s part. I’m lucky I don’t employ anyone and I’m not reliant on that income because of my pension but how can any small self employed business wait until June?

    “you can start claiming from the beginning of June”

     

     

    Are you sure? My understanding was that you could claim right away but payments would not be paid till June. por cierto

    Morning Stevie, how are things over there?

     

    That wee village of yours back home is growing apace, huge new housing development on the outskirts

     

    at the garage and beyond towards Linlithgow. I drive through it in a morning on way home from my Nightshift in Kirkliston

  16. From my HMRC email

     

     

    ‘Self-employed people do not need to get in touch with HMRC as the scheme isn’t yet open for applications. HMRC will contact eligible customers by the beginning of June, inviting them to apply.

     

     

    Unfortunately, we are aware of an increase in scam emails, calls and texts. If someone gets in touch claiming to be from HMRC, saying that financial help can be claimed or that a tax refund is owed, and asks you to click on a link or to give information such as your name, credit card or bank details, please do not respond.’

    Quick heads up for folk in the Greater Celtic Park area:

     

     

    There are a few small firms providing a home delivery service, which will continue provided there is demand for them.

     

     

    Urban Grocer has seen their restaurant trade evaporate, and are now offering home deliveries in the Glasgow area of fruit, veg and eggs. Stock varies according to what’s in the market each morning.

     

     

    See: https://www.urbangrocer.co.uk/grocer-s-box

     

     

    For meat, McIntyre Butchers on Dukes Rd offer home delivery in the Rutherglen/Cambuslang area. Just give them a call, place your order and pay over the phone: 0141 647 1410 (quality sliced sausage btw)

     

     

    Feel free to add to the list if you know of other firms doing similarly.

    Local volunteer group got grocery shopping for us.

     

    Community showing its strength.

     

    Bless em!

  24. Morning all from (a quite) sunny Dumfries & Galloway. All fine here, so far. Youngest daughter (My Lisbon Ghirl) has returned home as the film industry has shut down and being self employed she is skint. Son in law has also moved in as middle daughter is still working as a nurse in Dumfries. Now we know how the sheep felt during foot and mouth! Only get out once a week to collect hay & straw for the donkeys and ponies. All 19 donx are doing fine as are the 5 miniature shetlands, 2 standard shetlands and 3 ponies, including Big Jimmy our friendly, big, mischievous cob. Remind you of anyone? We took in a wee abandoned pet lamb the day before the lockdown so she’s been keeping everyone, especially the dogs, amused these last 12 days. Since Friesdorfer & B’s visit we’ve also added 3 Toulouse geese (including Jullien) and some Transylvanian Naked Necks to the menagerie. If the weather keeps improving we should be able to get the tortoises out soon.

     

    Oh, and just been in touch with CRC, so I’ll add Marc’s name by proxy. As usual he’s up to some good. HH

  25. Bankiebhoy, beware handling asitka spruce, its needles are stiff and sharp and will give you a nasty jag.. Norway spruce is the traditional christmas tree. its needles are softer and blunt.
