Rangers FC Charity Foundation gives £5,000 grant to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity
ABF The Soldiers’ Charity has received a generous grant of £5,000 from Rangers FC Charity Foundation from funds raised by the Armed Forces Partnership. The grant was given in alongside donations totalling £25,000 made to three other key military charities: Erskine Hospital; the RAF Benevolent Fund and The Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity.
Charles Dunphie, Regional Director Scotland for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, commented: “Our relationship with the Rangers Charity Foundation has gone from strength to strength. Today we are absolutely thrilled with this generous donation of £5000, which will be used to provide support to Scottish soldiers, veterans and their families at a time when need for support is growing. On behalf of all the services-related charities here today, I’d like to thank the Rangers fans for their incredible support.””
Foundation Director Connal Cochrane commented: “We’re delighted to continue our long-standing work with services-related charities with this £25,000 donation to four great causes.
“Over the years we’ve worked in partnership with Erskine and ABF The Soldiers Charity and have also made donations to SSAFA and Erskine via our Fans Forces Fund but what many supporters probably don’t realise is that the Foundation makes thousands of in-kind donations every year to a range of charities, and many of these are also services-related. “
