The Green Brigade have stepped up their efforts to support Scotland’s true heroes- NHS staff.
After delivering special hampers to four hospitals from their existing funds the Celtic Ultra group received a number of requests from fans wanting to make donations.
Yesterday on their North Curve twitter account the scheme was expanded with fans invited to make donations through Paypal with hampers being delivered to hospitals across the country.
We’ve had a lot of requests re the NHS Hampder Drive so have decided to take donations to allow more people to get involved, more hospitals to be reached and more staff to receive. Thank you to all who have supported this so far and as always thank you to the NHS. pic.twitter.com/EEvXpQqeRN

The hampers consist mainly of toiletries but also include a few luxury items such as chocolate bars to ease the strain on front line staff operating in unprecedented times.
With extended shifts and restrictions in place at supermarkets the delivery of hampers ensures that NHS staff are stocked up on essential items.
Down the years the Green Brigade has arranged a number of charitable events with the most visible being Food Bank collections which has seen areas around Celtic Park swamped with carrier bags with groceries to be distributed to local charities.
