Rangers Bring Christmas Cheer to Children's Hospital

Mon 3rd December 2018

The Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow received some festive cheer on Friday 30 November, thanks to Rangers Charity Foundation staff and volunteers and the Rangers’ Reserves and Women’s squads. 

The group enjoyed hanging Christmas decorations throughout the hospital which were funded by the Rangers Charity Foundation as part of the charity’s £10,000 pledge this season to Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.

The Foundation is paying for decorations to bring some magic to the wards at this special time of year and is also supporting a project to purchase adapted car seats for children with specialist plaster casts. 

Rangers Reserves Coaches Graeme Murty and Peter Lovenkrands were delighted to bring the players along to take part in the activity, which has become a tradition for the Foundation and Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and is part of a wider Christmas programme of initiatives for the festive period, which will also include a visit to the wards by the First Team squad in December.

Connal Cochrane, Rangers Charity Foundation Director, said: “Decorating the Children’s Hospital is something we look forward to each year, and we’re delighted to have come along again today.

“The Foundation is proud to have a close and long-standing relationship with Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity – one which really comes into life at Christmas time, when we aim to bring smiles to the faces of as many patients as possible.”
