Heartwarming Letter In Response To Green Brigade NHS Hamper Drive

The Green Brigade Ultras have been raising money to assemble and distribute hampers to front line NHS staff over the last couple of weeks. The campaign started with members in Aberdeen and quickly covered hospitals in Glasgow and the surrounding areas.

So far the group has raised £4279.91 and has covered as many hospitals and NHS members of staff as possible. Their efforts, typical of the good charity work they have conducted over the last decade, has helped to provide a much needed morale boost to those facing the pandemic head on.

Today, the North Curve Celtic Twitter page uploaded a picture of a letter that the group received from workers in the mortuary:

Following feedback from the hospital staff they have delivered hampers to, the group are now expanding their efforts to supply personal protective equipment to NHS workers and toiletries to workers.

And in a bid to boost the campaign, the group has decided to sell previously member exclusive North Curve Celtic badges, as of tomorrow.
