More Than Football – Community Clean Up This Weekend

Wed 4th April 2018

The Rangers Charity Foundation is appealing for supporters to join us this Sunday (8 April) to take part in a community clean-up of the Ibrox area.

Starting from 11am, we will be going out as a team to pick up litter from the streets around the Stadium in a show of community spirit.

Duties on the day will include litter picking around local streets and helping identify areas that may require a little bit of extra care and attention.  These voluntary events are suitable for people of all ages and all equipment will be provided by Community Safety Glasgow.

This will be our third community clean-up event and so far we have collected over 60 bags of rubbish from the local streets during these events. 

The Foundation has arranged the latest clean-up to mark the end of the More Than Football Action Weeks. The #Morethanfootball Action Weeks, organised by the European Football for Development Network (EFDN), are part of a campaign for the European football community to showcase the impact of their investment in community and social responsibility activities and programmes.

The Rangers Charity Foundation prides itself on being an active member of the community and we are always striving to be the best neighbour we can be. In order to have as big an impact as possible, we need as many people as possible to get behind this initiative.

Anyone who comes along to help out will get the chance to meet a First Team player in the future by becoming a part of the Foundation’s True Blue Hero programme.

Each person who volunteers 25 hours of their time or more to any of the Foundation’s designated projects will be invited along to an exclusive reception at Ibrox to be presented with a True Blue Hero medal and pin badge by a First Team player!

This Sunday, volunteers are asked to meet at the Argyle House Reception at the Stadium for a pre-clean team talk, and everyone will then head out for an hour or so before heading back to the Stadium for some well-deserved refreshments.

No previous experience is required to become a volunteer as all training will be provided.  Anyone under the age of 16 who volunteers will need to be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18.

To sign up or for further information on volunteering opportunities with the Rangers Charity Foundation email the Foundation at rangerscharity@rangers.co.uk or call 0141 580 8775.
