    This year’s annual Green Brigade food drive will take place before the match at home to Kilmarnock on Saturday 28th October. This will be the 5th consecutive year we have organised a collection at Celtic Park, and the food donations have made a massive difference to the people of Glasgow and beyond at what is always a difficult time of the year for so many.

    We have invited a total of 8 food banks from different parts of Glasgow to bring vans on the day, and we will be raising money to be distributed to others across Scotland in the hope that we can help as many families as possible in the run up to Christmas.

    Suggested items include coffee, tea, sugar, biscuits, UHT milk, tinned soup as well as male and female toiletries. There will be various buckets at each collection point for any monetary donations.

    We will once again be looking to donate some of the money raised to Scottish Action for Refugees (SAFR) who continue to support ‘Hand in Hand for Syria’, and are again running a winter clothes appeal. Funding will help to send a shipment of warm clothes to displaced people in Syria who need them most. Whilst the refugee crisis has less media coverage than ever, there are still thousands of innocent people facing another winter in extreme conditions. Please donate what you can.

    We as a support have proved time and again how much of a positive impact we can make to the lives of those who need a little help, and since our inception in 1888, have refused sit by and let our communities go hungry. This initiative has become an important part of that and we are always grateful for any donations received, no matter how big or small.

    “A football club will be formed for the maintenance of dinner tables for the children and the unemployed.”

    Good to see the Celtic website give this a shout







    THIS Saturday, October 28 at Celtic Park ahead of the game against Kilmarnock (KO: 3pm), the Green Brigade are holding their annual foodbank collection outside the stadium.

    There are a number of collection points around the stadium – on The Celtic Way, at Janefield Street (Lisbon Lions Stand end), at the coach & car park, and also at Gallowgate & Holywell Street (see image above).

    And supporters are asked to support the foodbank collection with their usual generosity.

    The most wanted items are: Cereal, pasta, rice, pasta sauce, tinned meat, tinned vegetables, tea/coffee, sugar, biscuits, UHT milk, toiletries, and other long shelf-life products. Cash donations also welcome.

    Apparently more than 10 vans full of food donations yesterday.

    Great effort again from the fans of this club.

    Money donated - £13,744.41
    Food donated - estimated 19 tonnes.

    Money is beginning to be split between another 20-25 Foodbank’s that never got food donations from us, Scottish Action for Refugees will receive a sizeable donation too.
