Celtic supports Concern
Promoting Concern’s work
For the first time ever, the Scottish giants will wear a strip featuring our logo to encourage support for our charity. The highly anticipated game will take place in Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, and will be played as part of the 2012 World Football Challenge event.
Celtic charity fund
Peter Lawwell, chief executive of Celtic Football Club said:
Celtic Charity Fund was established in 1995 to use our strong charitable heritage as a catalyst for positive change in the world. We are delighted to now support the work of Concern who have an unprecedented reputation in transforming the lives of the world’s poorest people and who last year reached 27 million people with their programmes.
The Celtic family around the world is notoriously generous and we look forward to the club and our fans uniting in their support of this great organisation.
Text your support
People viewing the game at home and in attendance on the day will be asked to give what they can to us via text message. Funds raised will go directly to our life-saving work in the world’s poorest countries.
A fantastic opportunity
Rose Caldwell, executive director of Concern Worldwide in the UK said:
We are delighted to be involved in such a huge event in the football calendar and are grateful to Celtic Charity Fund for such a great opportunity to share the importance of our work with so many football fans.
Each night, one in seven people in the world go to bed hungry and in a plentiful world this is not acceptable. We need funds to continue our work to tackle this problem and this match is a fantastic occasion for us to highlight the difference that Celtic supporters can make to the lives of some of the world’s poorest people.
