CELTIC FC Foundation have made a £5,000 donation to the Australian Red Cross to help towards addressing the crisis caused by months of devastating bushfires across the country.

This is the first donation by any football club and will help in the aftermath of the disaster, which has affected entire communities and millions of wildlife and plants in Eastern Australia.

This follows up on a donation which the club made in 2011, after the bushfires in the Australian state of Victoria.

Celtic’s Chief Executive, Peter Lawwell, said: “We are delighted that we can make a contribution to the ongoing recovery works taking place in Australia.

“It’s been devastating to watch people’s lives being turned upside down in recent months and we hope that the people affected by this disaster can get back on their feet very soon.”
