CHARITY (main page no longer maintained, 2015)
CATB have continued the Celtic tradition with their charity work. Here is some of our recent charity nights and fund raisers:



In no particular order or year. (page no longer maintained)


Dec 2015: CATB played in Viewpark to help a family of 7 who lost their father young. Sad time of the year and the bhoys in Viewpark have been good so we gladly helped the family out. Good turn out and very local so only a couple of hours of our time was nothing.


Dec 2015: Last gig of the year in Rutherglen - Cancer charity night. None of the above was mentioned on our website.


2010 - The band auctioned (1 of only 2 made) 20th Anniversary banners in 2010 through ebay/oxfam for the Haiti Earthquake Disaster. Paul Morrison of Condorrat, Cumbernauld won with a top bid of 255. Paul is now the only person outside the band to have this banner, the other one will always remain with CATB.


Also in 2010 the band done lots of charity nights, Feb with John Hartson and Neil Lennon in Glasgow. Two nights in Barrhead and a few in Ireland.


2009 - In September 2009 the band wrote a song on behalf of friends and family of the late Kevin McDaid who was killed in Coleraine. The song was placed on IndieStore as a download which saw CATB shoot to number 1 in the IndieStore charts. All proceeds were donated to the family.


In Jun & Dec 2008 and Jun & Dec 2009 CATB helped raise well over 1000 with the Barrhead Knights of St Columba Club in Glasgow for the TB Trust with Jonathan Burns present at a few of these night. The band have done a few gigs at the same venue for other charities. We also helped raise money for this cause (Tommy Burns Skin Cancer Trust) in Manchester Dec 2009. In September 2008 CATB were the first ever to donate to the "Tommy Burns Skin Cancer Trust" after our charity Barrowlands concert in memory of Celtic Football Club legend, Tommy Burns. A special thanks to all our fans who came along to help out. Again Scottish newspapers couldn't congratulate charity work by CATB. In June 2009 in Barrhead, Glasgow CATB handed over the 5 figure cheque from the Barrowlands night to Jonathan Burns with Billy McNeill present.


In November 2008 and September 2009 in St.Monan's, Fife we helped the CSC raise funds for the local wheelchair appeal along with Tommy Gemmell(2008) and Bertie Auld (2009).


In Elgin 2008 we helped to raise money for Leukaemia with the all the local Moray area CSCs.


With a few 10ks and a sky dive, all in all in 2008 CATB donated around 17000 to charity.


The band also helped some Celtic Supporters Clubs raise money for good causes, and also helped some CSCs stay afloat that had been loyal to the band by donating our time and donating a gig for them.


In New York in 2007 the band also helped the New York Bhoys raise $5000 whilst over playing for various NYCSCs which was donated to the Glasgow Cancer Hospice.


Never mentioned by us (until now) or by Celtic FC we were honoured back in 2004 to head over to Sligo and help raise money for the Brother Walfrid Statue. We also helped the James Connolly Johnstone CSC with gigs in Bothwell for the Jinky statue in Viewpark.


In 2011 we played for the Orkney Bhoys which helped raise 250 for their local charity, that same night we raised 112 for the Glasgow Cancer Hospice.


A wee mention to our roadie Mick. He put his vocals to our version of Grace which helped him raise over 3000 for the Glasgow Cancer Hospice & Breast Cancer UK, Mick done lots of other nights on his own in memory of his late wife Marie, thanks to everyone who also helped him.


In 2001 with The Brazen Head a night was arranged with a selected audience for Bobby Murdoch. Bobby was the first Lisbon Lion to sdaly pass away. The night with guests including Billy McNeill and Tony Roper to name a couple raised 12,000. An unbelievable and memorable night!


In 2013 the band have helped The Kevin Barry RFB raise funds for their trip to New York by doing a gig in Eastenders Bar for them. Also done a night in The Celtic Club, Parkhead to help Bairds Bar who were forced to close for a period of time.


In 2011 we done a couple of gigs for our very good friend Belfast Joe (Joe O'Neill) who was tragically killed outside a taxi rank in Belfast on his way home from work. We held these nights for his family in his hometown of Port Glasgow and then in the PD Club Andytown, Belfast. He will be very sadly missed.


Most of this has been documented and recorded on video including interviews with Lisbon Lions, ex players and charities speaking about each event. This will in time be released for all to see. ONE DAY!  HAIL HAIL
