Purple Army raise £12,260 for club’s charity partners

Braehead Clan would like to thank the Purple Army who raised an outstanding £12,260.00 for the club’s two official charities on Saturday night.

During the club’s EIHL win over the Milton Keynes Lightning, the Clan wore a special limited edition jersey which was the first time the Glasgow based club had played in yellow.
Following the game all the jersey’s were auctioned off to the club’s supporters, with the amazing amount going towards the final end of season donations to Beatson Cancer Charity and Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.
Clan Hockey & Operations Director Gareth Chalmers commented: “On behalf of the club I would like to thank the whole Purple Army for their superb support of our two official charities.
“This is as much about the Clan fans than anyone else, it’s their superb support of the jersey auctions that has allowed us to continue to make such a substantial financial contribution to the likes of the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and Beatson Cancer Charity.”
