One of Celtic legend Tommy Burns’ favourite charities is facing financial melt down over its innocent links to a killer.
Loaves and Fishes provide 4500 meals a year to the homeless and poor.
Burns was so inspired by their work he persuaded Celtic to donate £2000 a year and even helped hand out soup and food.
But the Glasgow-based charity have been forced to cut services.
Donations began to dry up after it was revealed a killer – who is now in jail and cannot be named for legal reasons – worked for them.
Chairman Denis Curran said: “People have turned their back on the charity because of the murder factor.
“We never had any problem getting funding until this emerged. Tommy Burns would be really disappointed if he knew how people have turned from us.”
Loaves and Fishes spend £28,000 each year feeding the homeless from Renfield St Stephen’s Church in the city centre.
But the charity now have just £1000 left in their coffers.
