THE Celtic FC Foundation has donated £5,000 to the Comic Relief charity.
Hoops defender Kolo Toure promoted the charity’s Red Nose Day appeal as part of the club’s long-time support to this great cause.

The Celtic crest also featured in a film of musical star Ed Sheeran as he visited Liberia as part of the appeal.

The singer/songwriter was broken-hearted at the appalling conditions he witnessed in the West African country. In one scene, he spoke to a 12-year-old girl called Peaches whose father had died from Ebola, preventing her from going to school.

When Peaches sang a song to him that reminded her of her father, she started to cry. Painted on the wall behind her was the Celtic crest, and it was a moment that moved everyone at Celtic Football Club.

Celtic FC Foundation already support many projects in Africa, and a percentage of the funds from the Legends’ charity match in May will go towards building 67 kitchens in developing countries where food insecurity and extreme poverty are claiming lives prematurely every single day.

The charity will have a particular focus on Africa and helping Syrian refugees. The 67 Kitchens initiative will see Celtic FC Foundation join up with Mary’s Meals, the charity which attracts impoverished children to the classroom through nutritious daily meals in schools and a long-time partner of Celtic FC Foundation.

The 67 Kitchens initiative gives all Celtic fans the opportunity to come together to support some of the world’s poorest, most vulnerable people.
