Glasgow Warriors extend partnership with Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity

Glasgow Warriors will be continuing their support of Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity for the next two seasons, after renewing the successful partnership until at least the summer of 2022.

The renewal
follows a two-year period that has seen the partnership go from strength to
strength, with the club supporting the charity both on and off the pitch since
joining forces back in 2018.

The squad’s
annual Christmas visit last December was followed by the sold-out Scrumbags gig
at Glasgow’s Hard Rock Café earlier this year, where supporters helped to raise
£9,648.36 on a night that will live long in the memory.

players will also be supporting the charity’s Pedal It Purple virtual
fundraising challenge, which takes place across the month of October. The initiative
sees people from across Scotland get on their bikes, with the aim of raising
funds to support seriously ill children, their families and the NHS heroes who take
care of them at Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Children.

“We are humbled to be able to continue supporting such a
worthwhile cause as Glasgow’s Children’s Hospital Charity,” said Glasgow
Warriors Managing Director Nathan Bombrys.

“The charity has touched the lives of people across the
city, looking after the health of our children when they need it most.

“While we have been focussed on our return to rugby over the
recent period, we cannot forget the vital services provide by the Glasgow
Children’s Hospital. We are pleased to be able to continue our work with
the hospital, and we will be aiming to put some significant support behind them
in the season ahead.”

Shona Cardle, CEO of Glasgow Children’s
Hospital Charity, said: “Each day, hundreds of children are still cared for in
the children’s hospital, neonatal units, and outpatient services across Greater
Glasgow and Clyde. However, as fundraising events continue to be cancelled due
to the ongoing pandemic, the pressure on the future of our life-changing
projects is greater than ever before.

“We are delighted that Glasgow Warriors
have chosen us as their official charity partner again for another two seasons
to help us continue to be there for our hospital families who need us most. The
squad and everyone behind the scenes at the club have provided such wonderful
support over the years with hospital visits and fundraising activities.

“The club’s ongoing commitment to the
charity will help to fund our life-changing projects, and help us transform
hospital experiences for young patients beyond the Covid-19 crisis.

“During these challenging times, it’s
always humbling to hear about supporters like Glasgow Warriors going to such
great lengths to fundraise for us. We’d like to wish the full team all the very
best in their support of Pedal It Purple this month. We know they’ll knock it
out the park and inspire so many others to get involved along the way.”
