Good causes are a major part of The Celtic Network’s ethos, Like the club we believe in social responsibility and the endeavour too help those less fortunate. Please visit our Charity partners and donate if you can.
Who? You say. The Kano Foundation. A group of volunteers set up in June 2010 to do one thing
to help deserving and disadvantaged children by offering them a (free) match-day experience at Celtic Park ..
Our aim is simple – take as many kids as possible to Celtic games and allow them to experience what we do as Celtic Supporters.
Last season, we took 600 children to 17 league and 2 European games at Celtic Park.
They came from all over the UK, from as far afield as Aberdeen (for the 9-0 game) and Gloucester, from Renton to Linlithgow.
We took kids from children’s homes, from single-parent families, child-carers as well as football and GAA teams and after-care clubs.
The one thing they all had in common? They wanted to see Celtic play at Celtic Park. Oh, and they applied!

Lifecycle (For Neuroblastoma)
I’m trying to raise £100,000 before I retire in 2018, to aid children who suffer from Neuroblastoma.
Neuroblastoma is an aggressive childhood cancer that affects around a hundred children in the UK every year. Effective treatment is scarce in this country and the families of children who are forced to go abroad for treatment face huge costs. My aim is to aid and support those families.
The idea behind Life Cycle (formerly Pennies From Heaven) is very simple: I live in Stewarton in Ayrshire, and I work in Glasgow, 16 miles away with 800 feet of climbing each way. Using the power of social media, I’m asking my supporters to match my commute miles in pennies. Every single mile raises pennies that will ultimately save a life.
