Hi guys, I know times are tough for everyone at the moment, but if you got a few extra quid/dollars/euros/shekels
The Billy McNeill Commemoration Committee in Bellshill this week announced they are only £7500 off the £70,000 needed to erect a statue in memory of the Celtic legend.
With the #StatueForCesar campaign reaching its climax, the Official Celtic Opus will be raffled at a cost of £10 per ticket in the hope of reaching their target in the coming weeks. It was donated to the campaign by Celtic FC archivist Frank Hannaway of the Celtic Graves Society,
Signed by all surviving members of the Lisbon Lions, the giant volume tells the inside story of Celtic FC from its foundation in 1888, via Jock Stein’s heroes of 1967, to the modern-day successes of Martin O’Neill and Gordon Strachan.
Frank Devine of the Billy McNeill Commemoration Committee said: “This is no ordinary tome. Four years in the making, weighing 40kg, it is half-a-metre square and costs an eye-watering £1967. It is a monumental publication taking the viewer on a journey way beyond the scope of previous history books on the club.”
And the winner of the definitive history of the club will be announced following a live draw on Facebook on July 14.
Frank added: “The committee hope that as many people as possible purchase tickets for this unique work of art. By doing so, we ensure ownership of the McNeil statue in Bellshill is spread as far as is possible among the Celtic family, and by purchasing a ticket for the Official Celtic Opus fans will be playing their part in building a lasting memorial to the legendary Billy McNeill.”
