The Shamrock is pleased to announce that after the success of our initial Celtic charity cards project last Christmas we now have cards to buy for the 2015 festive season. The Brother Walfrid-inspired design which proved so popular last year has been adopted again.
Almost £500 was raised least year split equally between our two nominated charities. This year our nominated charities are The Kano Foundation and the Society of St Vincent de Paul Scotland. The Kano Foundation barely needs any introduction as an inspiring supporter-led initiative which since 2009-10 has taken over 3,000 children from all backgrounds to matches at Celtic Park for free. When Brother Walfrid had the idea of establishing the Poor Dinner Children’s Table in the Sacred Heart parish in Bridgeton in the 1880s it was the laymen and women of the local conferences of the St. Vincent de Paul who ran the kitchens that prepared the food for the impoverished children. The Society continues to do vital work in communities in Glasgow and beyond today for the homeless, children with special needs and families facing poverty.
More information can be found about each charity here:
The cards are A5 size with a colour cover and plain text inside with a Brother Walfrid quote and the Celtic cross design from the club’s first jersey. The cards have been designed at no charge by our wonderful friends at Kinghorn Creative (https://kinghorncreative.wordpress.com).
The cards cost £1 each plus P&P and are available in batches of 5 and 10. As with last year £1 from the sale of each card will be split equally between the nominated charities. We are hopeful of beating the amount raised last year and initial interest has again been encouraging.
