Foundation hosts Festive Friends Christmas lunch!

Tue 10th December 2019

Older people from community groups in Govan enjoyed a special Christmas celebration at Ibrox this week, thanks to the Rangers Charity Foundation and the SPFL’s Festive Friends initiative.

Around 80 guests from local care homes, sheltered housing and other organisations were invited along for a festive drink and meal, as well as entertainment from the choir at St Paul’s school.

Former Rangers Legends Ally Dawson, Derek Johnstone and Mark Hateley also spent time with the special guests, taking photos and enjoying a chat.

Derek Johnstone commented: “What a wonderful afternoon!

“Myself, Mark and Ally all really enjoyed spending time with the Foundation’s special guests and hope that we helped to make their visit to Ibrox evenmore memorable.

“On behalf of everyone at the Club and Foundation, we wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!”

The lunch is supported by the SPFL Trust’s ‘Festive Friends’ initiative and forms part of the Foundation’s wider Christmas programme, which include a kids’ Christmas party and a visit to the Royal Hospital for Children with the Rangers First Team, where the Foundation will make a £10,000 donation to Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.
