#Game4Grenfell wins prestigious EFL Award

QPR'S #Game4Grenfell scooped a 'Special Project Award' at the Football League Awards in London tonight (Sunday).

Held at the Hilton Park Lane, the club and QPR in the Community Trust were represented, alongside three survivors Shahin Sadafi, Nicholas Burton and Bellal El Guenuni, as well as #Game4Grenfell participants Andy Sinton and Marc Bircham.

In awarding #Game4Grenfell the Special Project Award, Football League CEO Shaun Harvey, commented: 'In desperate circumstances and in a time of great need, QPR showed truly remarkable leadership, underlining just how vital professional football clubs are to the life of the communities in which they reside.

'From QPR in the Community Trust's immediate work in the aftermath of such devastation, through to #Game4Grenfell which offered hope to so many, the actions of all those connected to QPR were remarkable.'

QPR CEO Lee Hoos told www.qpr.co.uk: "For the club and the Trust to receive further acknowledgement for what we did for Grenfell and the local community is a fitting reward for all of those who worked so hard to put #Game4Grenfell together.

"However, it's not about rewards or gaining credit from the industry. This was never in our minds when we organised #Game4Grenfell.

"It was simply about doing what was right for Grenfell and the local community, to show them that we stood by them, shoulder-to-shoulder, in their time of need.

"It was about what we could do, as the club closest to the Tower, for the local community and all those affected by the tragedy."
