Almost three years ago now a few disgruntled minds threw together a fresh website to help accommodate what would later be referred to as a new breed of Celtic supporter. However there was nothing new about our recent charity initiative, its an old habit for the world famous Celtic support and hopefully a permanent one.
It hasn’t been easy being a Celtic fan recently, a divided club with a fanbase just desperate to get back doing what they do best, support their beloved team. But theres always one thing we can all unite behind, and thats helping those in need as embodied by our You’ll Never Walk Alone slogan.
The past European Championships was highly entertaining with a never to be forgotten ending, and offered the perfect opportunity for action starved fan to reconnect with the game again.
It also offered us all an excellent sweepstakes opportunity, and on that front congratulations St.Tams and McCaff for nabbing the eventual winner in the draw, although charity was the big winner.
Im delighted to tell you we raised $1000 over the course of the Championships, which has now gone to two different charities in need. As originally intended Marys Meals received the bulk of our donation with $900 bucks, but upon finding out one winner St.Tams had another organisation close to his heart we felt it was only correct to send a hundred bucks that way, with a wee message of support which can be viewed via the Justgiving link below.
Im sure I speak also for those involved behind the scenes when I offer a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you. Im very proud and humbled to be among you as always. It hasnt always been easy but such acts fully make being involved with the site worthwhile.
We dont know where our club is going, we dont know how this blog will end up and who will jump on or off this train, but we do know theres always someone needs help, and now we have a benchmark figure to beat.
Onwards and Upwards my friends in Celtic.
