Rangers FC Virtual Visit & 10K Donation
Rangers FC's men's first squad pay young patients a Virtual Visit
We virtually welcomed our friends from Rangers Charity Foundation, the charitable arm of Rangers Football Club, for their annual visit with the men's first squad.
The virtual visit formed part of the Rangers Charity Foundation’s long-standing partnership with the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and follows on from a special Christmas Jumper Day held by the Club’s Academy and Women’s squads earlier this month.
As well as delighting young fans on their virtual visit, thanks to joint donations from the First Team, Women and Academy players, as well as the Foundation, over £10,000 was donated to Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity. The donation will help to fund iPads to help keep patients connected with their families during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as sponsoring our Christmas Tree in the hospital Atrium, some Christmas decorations and more.
Shona Cardle, CEO, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity said: “It was an absolute pleasure to virtually welcome the Rangers players and the Rangers Charity Foundation to the hospital.
“The visit is always one of the highlights of the Christmas calendar, and the players certainly brought lots of smiles to the wards, even though they couldn’t physically be there due to the restrictions."
“We are extremely grateful to the Club, the Foundation and the players for their generous and continued support of Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.”
