Support The Green Brigade’s Wonderful Gesture For NHS Staff

Like them or loathe them, the Green Brigade Ultras do a hell of lot to uphold the traditions of Celtic Football Club. Whether it’s using their platform to promote inclusivity, highlighting the plight of the oppressed or organising huge fundraising events for charity – the group are always active.

Celtic recently donated £175,000 to local charities working on the front line during this coronavirus pandemic, and this week the Green Brigade, or more specifically the North Curve members, have been putting together hampers for NHS workers.

The campaign appears to have began in Aberdeen:

Members of the group then began dispersing tokens of appreciation to Glasgow and surrounding areas:

The gifts provide a welcome morale boost to those working to save lives at this horrific time.

As ever, the wider Celtic support are always willing to step up to the mark in keeping with the roots of our club. Just as the case with many charitable campaigns launched by the Green Brigade in the past, the wider Celtic support is needed once more.

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic as a young child during the Martin O'Neill era. Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. At the age of 19, I published my first Celtic book (Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support). Then, last year, I published my second book (Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events), which is sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores.
