Rangers donated 700 Tickets To Good Causes
Veterans, carers, the homeless and young people are just some of the groups who have benefitted from the Rangers Charity Foundation’s donation of over 700 match tickets for pre-season friendly games at Ibrox.
Organisations such as Barnardos, Help For Heroes, Glasgow Women’s Aid and the Salvation Army were delighted to receive briefs for pre-season matches at Ibrox to give their service users an enjoyable day out they would otherwise have been unable to experience.
Thanks to the generosity of the Club, the Rangers Charity Foundation was able to offer this opportunity to so many individuals, community groups and good causes.
Lauren Quinn from Harmeny Education Trust said: “I just wanted to thank you so much for the tickets. I have spoken to a few of the children who attended and they are still buzzing about it!” Other organisations which benefitted included Turning Point Scotland, the Beatson, Touched By Suicide, Quarriers and Glasgow City Mission.
