  • Light up the Clover in memory of a loved one this Christmas

    Light up the Clover in memory of a loved one this Christmas

    By: Newsroom Staff on 20 Nov, 2019 11:32

  • CELTIC FC Foundation’s Light up the Clover fundraising event is almost upon us. It will take place on Thursday, November 28 prior to Celtic’s UEFA Europa League clash with Stade Rennais (KO: 8pm).

    The event will once again see the Kerrydale Clover - adjacent to The Celtic Way - illuminated by LED candles placed in memory of loved ones, with the first being placed in honour of our Founding Father, Brother Walfrid.

    For a minimum donation of £2, candles will be available to purchase between 6pm-8pm on the night from our volunteers, who’ll be located at the Clover, on The Celtic Way and at other key entry points around the stadium, so please look out for them on your way to the match.

    We are still looking for a number of volunteers to assist with this event. If you would like to help please contact [email protected] or 0141 551 4321.

    For those not attending the match, or unable to get to the Clover on the night, candles can be bought HERE via our eBay site up until 5pm on Thursday, November 28. These will be placed on the Clover by our volunteers on your behalf.

    Adding to the festive spirit on the Clover, we will be joined by a Piper from 6:30pm and then graced with Christmas carols, performed by St. Anne’s Primary School Choir from 7pm.

    With just over one week to go, we are asking supporters to plan ahead and make sure they arrive at the stadium in plenty of time to enjoy the festivities.

    Proceeds raised at the event will support our 2019 Christmas Appeal, which aims to honour the founding principles set out when the Club was formed back in 1887, by continuing to help those in our community who are most in need.

    We want to help hundreds of local families facing poverty by giving them the kind of Christmas we all take for granted.

    We also want to support pensioners on our doorstep and help local charities. We can make a massive difference to the lives of children, the homeless, refugees and those living in refuge or facing other challenges.

    Christmas is a time to give and share. And the Glasgow Celtic will be there.
