Rangers Charity Foundation donates £20K to Children 1st

Rangers Charity Foundation has donated £20,000 to Children 1st Parentline so that every family can get support from their home at the touch of a button.

The Foundation works with charity partners each season to fund projects that have a lasting and significant impact locally, nationally and across the world and we are delighted to have partnered with them this year, to provide invaluable support to families during the COVID-19 pandemic through Children 1st Parentline.

Talking about the partnership Rangers Charity Foundation Director, Connal Cochrane, said:
“We’re proud to have worked with a range of national partners over many years, each of which has made a lasting difference to communities across Scotland.

“Our partnership with Children 1st has presented an important opportunity to reach families who might need help but are unsure how to access it. The pandemic has put extra pressures on families and by supporting and promoting Children 1st Parentline, we hope to help highlight to families across Scotland that they do not need to cope alone – help is always there.

Thanks to the generosity and commitment of our supporters, the £20,000 raised enables Children 1st to fund 40 additional volunteers and help ensure the service remains free - meaning more families in Scotland can get support when they need it.”

At Children 1st, we work alongside families to help them build the strong relationships that make all the difference to a child’s long-term development and which can also keep them safe from harm. Doing things together – like watching football – can help children build positive relationships, which helps them develop into healthy adults. Earlier in the partnership, Rangers Charity Foundation and Children 1st asked fans to create and share positive #MatchdayMemories of themselves enjoying football with their family or friends.
