Caledonia Warriors Team Up With Us!

27 April 2023 Caledonia Gladiators

We are delighted to be chosen as the official charity partner of Caledonia Gladiators. 

Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity will become a sponsor of the club through the end of this season, and all the 2023/24 BBL & WBBL campaigns.

We will sponsor Fahro Alihodzic’s jersey from the BBL side, and Erin McGarrachan’s jersey from the WBBL side for the rest of this campaign.  

Club owners, Steve, and Alison Timoney are huge advocates for the charity.

Throughout the years, they, their businesses, and family charity foundation have donated money, equipment and more to help the hospital-based charity which is held extremely close to their hearts. 

“The children and young people we support are all gladiators in our eyes, so we couldn’t think of a more fitting partner than the Caledonia Gladiators. We have been incredibly fortunate to benefit from a long-standing partnership with the club, which has helped to raise vital funds and awareness for Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity."

Kirsten Watson, CEO of Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity

“Gladiators truly are an organisation rooted in their community, and we’d like to express our heartfelt gratitude to everyone involved for their support through the years. Looking ahead, we are so excited to see what we can achieve together with our renewed partnership.”

“This charity is one that is close to our heart; the outstanding work they do in support of young people and children aligns fully with the core values within Caledonia Gladiators, which makes this announcement particularly special. Together, we are committed to making a difference.”

Last week, Fraser Malcolm, Téa Adams, and Chantelle Handy visited the charity’s base in the Royal Hospital for Children.

The trio met some of the children who the charity supports, they were all excited to meet their basketball idols.

“It was amazing to visit the hospital last week and spend some time with the children. The hospital is doing a great job with these children, making their experiences more comfortable and as fun as possible. As players and an organisation if we can put a smile on their faces and spend some time with them to help with their recovery, it would be our pleasure.” 

Chantelle Handy, WBBL player/assistant coach

We are so excited about the future of the partnership and can’t wait to work together on a variety of projects, raising vital funds to help young patients in Scotland.
