If you’ve not been following the work being done in your name in Malawi this week, do so here. 20 people arrived from Scotland early this week on behalf of the Celtic Foundation to renovate six centres which feed children ages five and under. They are also building a latrine (pretty sure this is a toilet) at one of the centres.
It’s another remarkable testament to the ethos of Celtic 127 years after the project started.
The Foundation are in Malawi with Mary’s Meals, the remarkable Scottish charity which is feeding hundreds of thousands of the world’s poorest children each day. By careful management of costs, utilisation of volunteers and ‘vocational’ staff, a remarkably high 93% of their revenue reaches those in need on the ground.
Really good to read Callum McGregor speaking to Celtic media. Not that he had anything particularly illuminating to say, but he was speaking after putting in a training session, confirming his return to fitness.
With the injury to James Forrest, Callum was one of the few bright lights in our early season form, opening the scoring in three consecutive European away games. He even shone in the inept Murryfield performance against Legia.
At the Hearts game last month I overheard someone suggest Callum needed a rest. His form had definitely dipped, which is not uncommon after young players sparkly when first breaking into the team. If he stayed fit there’s little chance he would have been rested for any of the recent games, such has been the form of those around him, so maybe his recent illness came at the right time.[calameo code=0003901718cdc4362fa2e? lang=en page=122 hidelinks=1 width=100% height=500]
