Celebrating Our Partnership With Bowel Cancer UK
Thu 13th April 2023
The Foundation has been working with Bowel Cancer UK as its National Charity Partner throughout the season, and at this weekend’s match we are celebrating that partnership with a range of activities including a can collection outside the Stadium, information and videos on the Jumbotrons and an extra special mascot leading out the team.
All season, the Foundation has been helping to spread the word about the signs and symptoms of bowel cancer and the importance of taking part in bowel cancer screening to the Rangers family and beyond.
The club and charity arranged for bowel cancer symptoms posters to be displayed in washrooms around the Stadium and this initiative has spread across Scottish football thanks to support from the SPFL Trust, with six other clubs joining the campaign and displaying posters in their washrooms.
Rangers fans have also come forward to share their experience of bowel cancer on a special Rangers Wall on Bowel Cancer UK’s website, urging others to be aware of the symptoms and take up their screening test when invited.
Bowel Cancer UK’s research shows that nearly 4 in 10 people (38%) in Scotland can’t name a single symptom of the disease – Scotland’s second biggest cancer killer – but thanks to partnerships like this one, awareness of the disease and its symptoms is improving.
Please look out for our volunteers before the game on Saturday if you are attending the match, and watch out for information in the matchday programme and on the Stadium screens.
