I know we are in the middle of a storm with the prospect of the San Siro, not to mention St Johnstone ahead. I also know the only thing you want to read or write about is how we are going to resolve our problems, but there is more to Celtic than football, specifically the Foundation.
The history poverty is clear, the poor suffer more from an economic crisis than anyone. 2020 has been a terrible year to be poor and many more people are now poor than a year ago. Your Foundation stepped in early in the crisis and continues to work on our behalf. There has been practically no fundraising this year: no badge day, no bucket collection or Ghirls for Good.
The Sleep Out, which takes place each winter, goes ahead on Friday night as Stay Up for the Champions. You can participate from your home, details here. If that is not possible, you can help in other ways here.
We are so much more than just a football club, the Foundation is evidence of that.
We’re launching Celtic: Fifty Flags Plus One, an anthology of how Celtic won each of their league titles today. Starting with our first title in 1893, it details how Willie Maley brought consistent glory, then the sparse successes over four decades before Jock Stein arrived in 1965 and the more contemporary wins since.
It will rekindle memories you had forgotten and give insight into how the leagues were won.
