Following the announcement by Celtic that it was going to give vouchers to last year’s season ticket holders by way of ‘added value’ we enquired with them as to whether we could collect these and donate them to causes close to the hearts of Celtic supporters. We have gauged the numbers who would be willing to donate the vouchers and have liaised with a number of local charities working with children and young people to see if they would be able to use them. We are now in a position to explain the arrangements. We have been in touch with 5 local groups (two youth clubs in the south and the east end of the city, a gaelic sports club, an east end primary school and a charity which helps refugees). We are very happy to consider other groups if enough vouchers are collected. All vouchers will be distributed to the groups and to others if possible. We will give a full account at the end of the process of how many vouchers were distributed.
This is a great opportunity to turn what many Celtic supporters felt was a very disappointing decision by the Celtic Board into a very positive outcome for some young people in our city who might not otherwise be able to afford the items these vouchers can buy.
Please send any unwanted Vouchers to: The Celtic Trust, Box 502, 103 Byres Road, Glasgow G11 5HW
Celtic Trust reps will be at the bottom of the Celtic Way on Saturday 19th June between 12 and 1 (and subsequent dates to be arranged if necessary).
