    Foundation’s 67 Kitchens are on course

    By: Newsroom Staff on 02 Feb, 2018 10:28

  • LAST year we announced how funding from the #LionsLegacy campaign will see Celtic fans support the building of 67 school kitchens for children in the developing world.

    A host of Celtic supporters’ clubs are also fundraising to each sponsor one of the 67 kitchens, with each Mary’s Meals school then displaying the naming banner of its founding CSC.

    We are delighted to report that construction of kitchen facilities at the first 47 schools in the project is progressing well, and is due to be completed in spring 2018.

    Pictured above and below are photos displaying building progress at three of the schools situated in Malawi; in the villages of Chiwambo, Mpale and Nogwe.

    In November, Celtic FC Foundation Chief Executive, Tony Hamilton, travelled to Malawi to witness the progress of construction at these sites. The below video tells the story of the trip and of the incredible difference that the 67 Kitchens will make to local communities:

    Each supporters’ club fundraising for one of the 67 Kitchens will receive regular updates on how the facilities are progressing, as well as their CSC name painted on a banner on the kitchen wall.

    The banner will serve as a daily reminder to the children at each school that the Celtic support are behind them in building a prosperous future for their community.

    As construction continues, each month we will highlight some of the CSCs involved in the project. 

    If you or your supporters’ club would like further information on sponsoring one of the 67 Kitchens, please contact [email protected] or call +44 141 551 4262.
