    Still time to join Celtic’s Zambia adventure 2020

    By: Newsroom Staff on 14 Feb, 2020 14:36

  • AS we look forward to returning to Zambia for a second consecutive year, there is still time to get involved.

    In June 2020, we will be returning with a group of Celtic FC Foundation volunteers to the Chipata region, to work in partnership with Mary's Meals, once again.

    The group will spend 10 days providing practical support on the ground. Their placement will involve the renovation/improvement of schools identified by Mary's Meals and assistance with their feeding programme. Mary's Meals provides life-changing meals to some of the world's poorest children every school day.

    Through funds raised from our #LionsLegacy campaign, the 67 Kitchens project has seen the building of 47 kitchens throughout Malawi, with the final 20 constructed in Zambia.

    This vital work to provide safe cooking and storage facilities within these schools is helping to ensure nutritious meals are being served to approximately 45,000 hungry children every day, across Malawi and Zambia.

    We asked last year’s volunteers to sum up their trip in three words and here is what they had to say.

    The party will depart on Tuesday, June 16, 2020 (arriving the following day) and return on Saturday, June 27, 2020 (arriving in Glasgow the following day). Participants must be aged 18 or over on the day of departure.

    Each volunteer will be tasked with raising £1,612 to cover the cost of the trip (with a £250 deposit required to confirm each place) and also a minimum of £1,000 as a charitable contribution to Celtic FC Foundation.

    This will support the development work the volunteers will undertake in Zambia, Celtic FC Foundation’s 67 Kitchens project (in partnership with Mary’s Meals) and also the Foundation’s projects supporting vulnerable children and adults at home.

    The trip will include:

    • Return coach travel between Glasgow and London Heathrow
    • Return flights between London Heathrow and Lilongwe, Malawi – via Addis Ababa - with Ethiopian Airways
    • Transport between Lilongwe, Malawi and Chipata, Zambia
    • Basic accommodation at Cross Roads Lodge on a single occupancy basis (including all meals)
    • Volunteer work placement provided by Celtic FC Foundation via Mary's Meals
    • Travel to and from your volunteer placement on a daily basis
    • Safari day trip

    The final two places on the 2020 trip are now available on a first come, first served basis. To register your interest, please contact us at [email protected] or call 0141 551 4321.
