Rangers Academy Players Decorate Children’s Hospital For Christmas

Mon 28th November 2022

Rangers Academy players and Rangers Charity Foundation and Club staff volunteered to decorate Glasgow’s Royal Hospital For Children for the festive season.

More than a dozen youth players and staff were invited by Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity to hang decorations and help spread some Christmas cheer to the wards on 25 November 2022.

The Foundation has enjoyed a special relationship with Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity for the last 20 years.

The partnership has saw the Foundation donate cash, toys and equipment, supporting Christmas activities and organising special visits and treats for the children.

Kirsten Watson, Chief Executive, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity said:

“It was a joy to decorate the children’s hospital for Christmas with the help of the Rangers Charity Foundation and Rangers Academy players.

“Rangers have been steadfast supporters of Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity for many years, which is why it’s so special to have them back in the hospital with us once again.

“Christmas is a very difficult time for children and their families to be in hospital, so we do all that we can to bring some magic to the wards at this time of year.

“Thank you to everyone at the club and Foundation for their continued generosity.”

Foundation Chief Executive, Connal Cochrane, said:

“I’d like to thank the Rangers Academy youth players, Foundation and Club staff and volunteers for coming along today and hanging the decorations.

“We hope this will spread some Christmas cheer to the children and hospital staff.

“We have such a special relationship with Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and we are proud to give our support to their work to help ensure that each baby, child, young person and their family receives the best possible care.”
