RANGERS Charity Foundation delivered treats for patients in two city hospitals.

The Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and Glasgow Royal Infirmary were given a boost after £2,000 was raised to allow the club’s charity to purchase items for the free hospital tuck shops.

The Acute Medical Receiving Unit at Glasgow Royal Infirmary has 80 patient beds in their unit alone.

James Monaghan, Ward Manager, said: “Having this free tuckshop service supports the loneliness that patients are experiencing at the moment because they can’t have visits from loved ones, and access to normal things is just not possible at the moment.”

Christina Campbell, Dementia Nurse at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, added: “Having this tuckshop is a way of keeping the rainbow of care going for our elderly vulnerable patients, providing small treats that mean a lot to our patients.”

Rangers Charity Foundation Director, Connal Cochrane, added: “Everyone at the Foundation is committed to supporting the Glasgow community as much as possible during these challenging times – and we cannot thank our supporters enough for their generosity towards this initiative. You have brought some relief to those who have been hospitalised and who will be missing their loved ones.

“Our team has been working hard to offer support where we can within the local community and beyond and will be continuing to share weekly fun and educational resources for children to access at home; however, there is also a real desire to support the city’s vital health service where we can.

“The charitable spirit of the Rangers Family has always been remarkable and by coming together, we’ve made a real difference. Thank you.”

The Rangers Charity Foundation would also like to express its sincere thanks to United Wholesale Grocers Ltd, who provided the food and drink items, whilst donating £250 worth of produce.
