THE Rangers Supporters Erskine Appeal has celebrated a landmark in its fundraising drive after breaking through the £1million barrier for Scotland's biggest Veteran's charity.

RSEA, the brainchild of Gers fan Tom Clark, was launched in 2007 in an effort to raise vital funds for Erskine’s specialist care of Veterans and their families.

The group were named Volunteer Fundraising Group of the Year from the Institute of Fundraising Scotland in 2011 and have the support of Ibrox legends from through the years as fans continue to do their bit for Scotland's Armed Forces.

Richard Gough: “The generosity of the Rangers support towards our armed forces are second to none and what the RSEA have done in raising £1 million for our ex-servicemen and women who are in the care of Erskine is truly inspiring. I am sure the team at RSEA will not be sitting back on their laurels and are already planning how to keep the donations coming in. Their actions speak louder than any words can.”

Ian Ferguson: "Since emigrating to Australia, the progress and tireless fundraising efforts of all involved with the Rangers Supporters Erskine Appeal has been a source of real pride for both myself and my family. It remains a rich honour to be a patron of such a great organisation, which continues to go above and beyond to help the real heroes in our society.”

The Rangers’ supporters are like no other and this milestone, of reaching £1 million for Erskine’s Veterans, simply hammers home their generosity and kindness when it comes to caring about those that need it most. I am so proud to have played a small part in this success and look forward to working with the RSEA for many years to come.”

Dave Smith: “Having been involved with the Rangers Supporters Erskine Appeal from the very beginning, the success of all involved has continually blown me away. The RSEA has become ingrained in the Rangers family over the past 13 years and continues to go from strength to strength. Raising over £1 million goes beyond all of our wildest dreams but what a fabulous amount of cash to raise for our Veterans.”
