Your Foundation has today committed £400k to help those in fuel crisis in Scotland. £49 fuel vouchers will go to around 6,200 households, reaching 17,000 people. A further 500 people will receive a winter care pack worth £100.
None of us really know what the world is in for this winter, but fuel bills have pushed so many on low or no incomes over the brink. Families are choosing between heating and food, and forgoing the use of things life stairlifts for the disabled in an effort to hold their lives together.
Everyone who has put money in a Celtic FC Foundation bucket collection, bought a badge or contributed in any way, should be very proud of what they have achieved here. Winter always brings a surge in demand for the Foundation’s work. This project, in partnership with the Fuel Bank Foundation, is only a part of what will be done in your name in the months ahead.
What started in 1888 remains a very live and active part of being Celtic. Well done to all.
