Tom Boyd has led a team of cyclists through the birthplaces of the Lisbon Lions to raise funds for the Kano Foundation.

For over a decade the Kano Foundation has been providing a full day out at Celtic Park for schoolkids with activities before and after the match.

A very dedicated team look after all matters with fundraisers throughout the year that are well backed by the wider Celtic support.

One of the best known stories in Celtic’s history is how 10 local lads plus one far flung Bhoy from Ayrshire achieved greatness in Lisbon by lifting the European Cup. As the song says ‘it’s the first time it had been on British shores’.

It wasn’t quite Lisbon heat but it was unusually warm on Thursday as the Kano team set off from Saltcoats back towards the central belt to visit the Glasgow and Lanarkshire birthplaces of the Lions before ending their journey at the statue of Billy McNeill on the Celtic Way. Covering 91.4 miles in 10 hours is no mean achievement.
