That this House congratulates Rangers FC Charity Foundation for reaching its ambitious target to fund one million vaccines for UNICEF to protect some of the world's most vulnerable children from a variety of deadly yet preventable diseases, including measles, polio and typhoid, a target reached by the raising of £300,000 over the last three years; notes that this donation builds upon the Foundation's eight-year partnership with UNICEF, having previously funded education projects in India and the refurbishment of seven health centres in north-eastern Togo, providing clean water and basic medical aid to 125,000 children; further notes other donations which have included £70,000 to Glasgow City Mission's Winter Night Shelter, £25,000 to four armed services-related charities, £10,000 to the Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity, and a further donation planned of £25,000 to Alzheimer Scotland; and further congratulates the generosity and commitment of the supporters who have raised those amounts and encourages their future work.
