CELTIC stars yesterday made a special visit to Glasgow’s Royal Children’s Hospital to deliver a special Christmas gift of £10,000 on behalf of Celtic FC Foundation.

The donation will fund enhanced equipment and services to ensure all the young patients receive the best possible care.

The charity funds aim to enhance the care of the 168,000 babies, children and young people treated each year at the hospital.

Hoops skipper Scott Brown said: “We are delighted to once again visit the hospital and see the fantastic work being carried out by such great staff, in looking after so many children.

“This goes on all-year round and the hospital and its staff deserve huge praise for their tireless work and commitment to helping children in need.

“We realise, too, that it can be so difficult for the kids and their families around the hospital at this time of year, so if our visit can in any way lift their spirits, then we are delighted to have helped in some way.”


Chief Executive Peter Lawwell added: “Everyone at Celtic is passionate about the connection we have with the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and we have joined forces for many years now, in working to help children who are most deserving of our support.

“The hospital and its work has been synonymous with the Club’s charitable vision for decades and we are delighted that our fundraising efforts have had such a positive impact.

“We hope our continued support will also raise awareness of the level of care needed by children and their families – not only at Christmas but throughout the year.”
