Celtic FC Foundation raises £1.3 million to support vulnerable and at risk groups…

For more than a year, Celtic FC Foundation have provided support to the most vulnerable, at-risk groups affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, under the banner, ‘Football for Good Fund’ (FFGF), and have now reached £1.3million through the Fund, including Celtic’s 2020 Christmas Appeal.

Back in March 2020, Celtic FC Foundation were forced to pause the traditional project delivery and fundraising activities, with the entire focus of the Foundation being redirected to alleviating the evolving complications of the COVID-19 crisis in our communities.

Celtic FC Foundation have worked with 82 partner charities, schools and community organisations to supply urgent and vital food and essentials, assistance to challenge fuel poverty, and mental health support to those who need it most in Scotland, Ireland, the wider UK, and overseas. Read more on the official Celtic FC website.
