The Prostate Cancer Charity announced as National Charity Partner of the Rangers Charity Foundation

The Prostate Cancer Charity has been announced as the National Charity Partner of the Rangers Charity Foundation for a second year running. It is the first time the Rangers Charity Foundation has extended a national partnership beyond one year.

The Foundation has been able to make a significant impact on The Prostate Cancer Charity's aim to reach more men across Scotland with its vital message, and Rangers fans have really engaged with the cause. The Foundation and the Charity believe that building upon the partnership for another season can make a real difference in the ongoing battle against prostate cancer, which is the most common cancer in men in Scotland with 2,700 new diagnoses every year.

The Foundation's fundraising for The Prostate Cancer Charity will support the distribution of information for older men with prostate cancer and the expansion of the Charity's support group network, including providing key resources for the groups.  The Foundation will also help to advance vital research work in Scotland - the first time the Foundation has funded this type of activity.  In total, the Foundation hopes to raise around £20,000 towards these projects.

Ann Ferguson, Head of Operations at The Prostate Cancer Charity Scotland: said: "We are so grateful to Rangers, Rangers fans and the Rangers Charity Foundation for their hard work, support and generosity over the course of last season where a magnificent £25,000 was raised for the fight against prostate cancer. The Prostate Cancer Charity is delighted that this partnership has been extended for another year, and we have no doubt it will play a significant role in the ongoing battle for a world where lives are no longer limited by the disease."

Connal Cochrane, Manager of the Rangers Charity Foundation commented: "I am delighted we will be continuing to support The Prostate Cancer Charity, with whom we have worked extremely well over the last 12 months. We have seen what has been possible over the last year and this has inspired us to develop our partnership further.  We believe we can make a significant impact on the work of this hugely deserving charity and reach even more men across Scotland."
