A big well done to everyone who participated in the efforts to send Vanessa Riddle to Philadelphia for crucial medical treatment. The £500k required was raised yesterday.
Brogan Rogan’ brought the issue to the blog and Taggsybhoy arranged the CQN Music Quiz earlier this month, our first formal activity for Vanessa. Penfold gave us a signed Celtic top at the quiz which raised an incredible £5000 on eBay (plus gift aid) from a Celtic fan who, quite simply, gets what following this club is all about.
Not only did he pay £5000 but he told us to keep the shirt and use it again! We then raffled the shirt on eBay and raised almost £1400. You are all part of an incredible story by an incredible support.
The draw for the signed shirt took place at Uefa headquarters in Nyon, you can watch the video of below and find out if you won.
Our thanks again to Andrew in Belfast for his tireless help with the site this week. The new ‘whyte’ template is in place and we’ll continue to restore functionality.
