Ladies and gentlemen, welcome.
As most of you will know, every season at Maley's Bhoys we select a charity (or charities as was the case last year) to raise money for in keeping with the charitable nature of our website and, more importantly, with the charitable ethos of Celtic Football Club and its supporters.
Having previously raised money for The Good Child Foundation (Thailand - £375), The Kano Foundation (£1,100), Motor Neurone Disease Scotland (£1,300), The Wayside Club and Feed Glasgow (£765 each), I am proud to say all of our previous appeals have been very successful in nature, thanks entirely to the generosity of you, the Celtic support.
This season, 2014-15, we have chosen to support Alzheimer Scotland, with a significant portion of the money raised going directly to their Football Memories programme, which helps individuals suffering with dementia by rekindling cherished sporting memories, regardless of which team they support.
This is a truly excellent endeavor, and one which I hope we can back convincingly by breaking the £1,000 mark for what would be the fourth season running.
Details of future fundraising events etc, as well as more information reagrding our chosen charity and their Football Memories project will be available on our website (www.maleysbhoys.com), as well as on Twitter (@MaleysBhoys).
Should any of you wish to donate via "Just Giving", information as to how to do this is provided. If you would like to donate via an alternative method (e.g. cheque), please contact myself via the aforementioned website or on Twitter for details.
