Tony Hamilton, Celtic FC Foundation chief executive, said: “The NHS are keeping the country together at the moment and we’re honoured to be able to help some of the frontline staff at Glasgow Royal Infirmary through this initiative.

“We’re fortunate enough to have teamed up with Cathedral House hotel right next door to the hospital and hopefully this will ease the burden for some of the many NHSGGC staff who are working through severe pressure at the moment.

“Our thanks go to everyone who has made this possible, including those people and organisations who have made donations, and many of the Foundation's and the Club’s suppliers who have contributed with food and other supplies. I hope that we can continue this programme for as long as it’s needed."
