Big Hearted Bears Day!
Tue 20th September 2016
We know our fans have huge hearts when it comes to supporting the Rangers Charity Foundation and their generosity has inspired us to create a new Foundation matchday event – Big Hearted Bears Day!
Big Hearted Bears Day will take place on Saturday 1 October at the game against Partick Thistle at Ibrox where we’ll have loads going on to celebrate the work of your Foundation and raise vital funds.
We’ll be selling limited edition Big Hearted Bears pin badges for just £1 at the turnstiles and we’ll have information hubs in the concourses where you can chat to staff and volunteers about the work of the Foundation and our charity partners, play our spot the ball competition and sign up to our mailing list to enter a free prize draw.
In the Family Stand, craft and face painting activities for the kids will have a Big Hearted Bears Day theme, plus there’s a Big Hearted Bears colouring competition.
Our Merchandise Stall is back too, so make sure you come along and see us outside the megastore in the run up to kick-off and grab yourself a bargain. We’ll be selling signed items, memorabilia, pictures, programmes and other goodies from the Foundation’s store cupboard.
Plus, we have a special ‘charity’ pie on sale from the Fast Food outlets, with 10% from each pie sold going to the Foundation. So if you ever needed an excuse to tuck into a matchday pie, this is it!
On the pitch we’ve got a special penalty shoot-out at half-time that you could be part of! If you’ve ever dreamed of stepping out onto the Ibrox pitch and taking a penalty before the home crowd then now’s your chance. We’ve 7 places up for grabs at just £125 each for this once in a lifetime opportunity to step up and pitch your skills against one of our youth team goalkeepers*. If you’re interested give us a call now on 0141 580 8775 or e-mail email@example.com.
Watch out too for our article in the matchday programme, video messages on the big screens throughout the day and information about our charity partners! Plus, there’s also an opportunity to text to donate for Big Hearted Bears Day – just text RBHB16 £5 to 70070 to donate £5 to the Foundation and make a difference.
Of course, Big Hearted Bears Day would not be possible without the support of our amazing volunteers, so if you can spare a few hours before kick-off to help out please get in touch on 0141 580 8775 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re looking for 60 Big Hearted Bears to support us on the day by selling pin badges or helping at one of our stalls. Bring your energy and enthusiasm and help a great cause!
*Penalties will be taken in training goals on the pitch.
