Celtic fan group The Green Brigade has now delivered over 200 morale-boosting hampers to NHS staff in hospitals around the country, backed by donations from the wider support.
As we discussed last week, the group had started to show exceptional support for frontline NHS workers helping fight the ongoing public health crisis, with the delivery of hampers in Aberdeen and Glasgow before asking people for donations.
Twitter account North Curve Celtic has now detailed the scale of their efforts after a weekend of exceptional effort, also revealing that over £3500 has been raised to help support the campaign.
Over the weekend, hampers were delivered to Glasgow Royal (Acute Assessment), RAH (ICU) and Gartnavel (Ambulances).
We have more batches ready to go to QEUH (Mortuary), Vicky and Wishaw which brings us to over 200 hampers to date.
£3618.10 has been raised so far.

The idea behind the drive came from one of the group members speaking to a nurse, who relayed that what wards and hospitals were facing up to right now.
Now, hampers fulls of essentials such as shower gels and deodorants, as well as taken for granted items such as tea and sweet treats are making their way to staff in Scotland showing immense bravery, in an effort to put a smile on their faces.
It’s through actions like these, as well as following government and expert advice, that society is going to get through everything that’s going on.
Kindness often shines through in times of struggle and it’s great to see a prominent supporters group such as the Green Brigade lead the way.
