ONE hundred days on from the tragic Grenfell Tower fire and almost three weeks since a #Game4Grenfell, QPR are showing their support for the newly-formed Grenfell Athletic FC.
The brainchild of survivor Paul Menacer (pictured), who featured in a #Game4Grenfell on September 2nd, Grenfell Athletic has been formed with the help of The Rugby Portobello Trust (RPT), a charity whose offices are based near the foot of the Grenfell Tower, which was so tragically engulfed in flames on June 14th.
The team’s formation is a long-term project for the West London community, using the facilities and resources of the RPT. Its aim is to support survivors from Grenfell as well as RPT helpers in a positive way, promoting a healthy lifestyle and offering an opportunity for players to socialise together in the wake of the tragedy.
QPR wishes Grenfell Athletic all the best for the season!
