Celtic and Scotland Legend Danny McGrain takes up post of Football Aid's first Vice-Patron

Former Quality Street Kid, Scottish Player of the Year and lifelong sufferer of Diabetes accepts offer of Vice-Patron of UK Football’s favourite charity, diabetes fund raising Football Aid.

Craig Paterson, Football Aid Chairman, was delighted to announce today that Danny McGrain is to become Football Aid UK’s first Vice Patron, having been involved with Football Aid since its inception in 2000. With a personal vested interest in the quest to fund a cure for diabetes, the 54 year old will be as determined as he was in a defensive position to ensure success can be achieved for the diabetes cause alongside all the other charities that receive funding from Football Aid (all of which are nominated for funding by Football Aid partner Clubs).

Danny explained “I have been a huge supporter of Football Aid since it started working with clubs over three years ago. The fact that proceeds from these games go to diabetes research is particularly important to me, as one who has learned to live with the condition over many years.”

Sir Bobby Robson, Football Aid’s Patron, added, “As someone who’s support and loyalty to the beautiful game and to Football Aid in particular, has shown no apparent end, appointing Danny was an obvious choice.”
