Early 2013: Volunteering Overseas
Reinforcing Celtic Charity Fund’s commitment to supporting the famine relief efforts in East Africa, a magnificent 21 volunteers traveled to Kenya on Monday 31st October 2011, to spend 10 days working in local schools.
This was Celtic Charity Fund’s inaugural trip to Africa and the participants not only lent practical and emotional support in Kenya but, as ambassadors of the Fund and Celtic Football Club, also spread the word on our unique charitable roots and heritage.
The day-to-day work ranged from teaching support to cooking to laying new floors to plastering to painting, including much Celtic-inspired artistic input! One or 2 Celtic songs could also be heard on many occasions! We also got used to chants of ‘Mzungu!’, which is an affectionate term for white people. The trip culminated in a visit to Kibera Celtic FC.
The initiative obviously involved a fundraising element and the group raised an incredible total of almost £20,000 for Celtic Charity Fund.
As a result of the success of the trip, Celtic Charity Fund is now considering another overseas trip at the start of 2013. To register your interest, contact Jane Maguire on 0141 551 4262 or email email@example.com
