A community organisation in Glasgow has praised Celtic as the club for donating a four-figure donation to their group.
Royston Youth Action posted on Twitter that the group had received £2500 from the Celtic Foundation Football for Good Fund, which will be used for food and fuel payments for those that most need it during the current crisis we live in.

The Celtic Foundation Fund will no doubt be donating to a number of good causes during the time that football is in lockdown.
Club will be focusing on good causes
That should be the current focus of Celtic at the moment. With no football on the horizon, it should be about focusing on good causes, which is what the Fund will be doing, as it provides money to those that need it in these uncertain times.
It is unlikely that Celtic will publicise these donations, the club would probably rather it was kept quiet. However, there is nothing wrong with groups giving praise to the Foundation for the aid they have received.
Charity Fund sits at six figures
Celtic announced on Wednesday that the Fund to support good causes currently sits at £175,000, and it is good to see that the money is already being put to good use.
Hopefully that will continue even when football returns to Celtic Park. For now though, all the focus at the club will be about helping those that are vulnerable and in need of support during these complicated times that we live in.
Celtic were of course founded to bring support to those that were in need of it in the East End of Glasgow, and it is good to see that charity still plays a big part in what the club is all about.
