A group of Celtic supporters ‘Kenyan Volunteers’, who volunteered to work with some of the most impoverished communities in Kenya, reunite at Celtic Park this afternoon after returning from Africa earlier this month. Volunteer, Robert Bogan, asked me to pass on a thank you from the group to all Celtic supporters who made the trip possible.
It’s difficult to comprehend the utter deprivation some people live with until you hear a first-hand experience. Robert and the others worked in a community with 20% HIV infection rates, 40% unemployment and where the average wage was around £1 per day. You can read more about the trip by visiting Robert’s EveryClick page.
Please also give your support to the Kano Foundation for a charity fundraiser at the Celtic Supporters Club on London Road tonight, where a group of hairy men are having their legs waxed. You can donate by Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org, at the gates at the east end of Janefield St before 14:15 today or later at the club.
