Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) embraced the special atmosphere surrounding Champions League night at Celtic Park as they staged a Bucket Collection prior to kick-off.
Belgian club Anderlecht were the visitors to the East End of Glasgow where AoS volunteers turned out in force on the night to raise over £500 in less than two hours.
Among the volunteers, which included parish contacts from different parts of the city, were John Ogilvie High School, Hamilton, who gave up their time to offer their services as part of their Caritas Awards.
Pupil Kieran said; "It’s great to help Apostleship of the Sea and learn more about the tremendous work they do. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves helping such a good cause and would be happy to do so again."
Euan McArthur, AoS Scottish Development Officer, said, "We offer a sincere thank-you to everyone who helped to make this such a worthwhile occasion."
Celtic will play in the Europa League after Christmas and AoS hope to foster their burgeoning relationship with the club which was formed in 1888 on charitable purposes to help feed the poor in the East End of Glasgow.
