Young QPR fan walks 120 miles for charity

YOUNG QPR supporter Romany Taylor recently walked 120 miles to help raise money for her local foodbank.

Eleven-year-old Romany – a Junior Hoop – walked to West Berkshire Foodbank every day during the month of June.

Her daily walk, which was two miles to the foodbank and then two miles back home, saw her trek up and down Combe Gibbet, which is the highest point in the south of England.

Initially setting herself a modest sponsorship target of £50, Romany has managed to raise over £1,600 for West Berkshire Foodbank so far.

“I’ve supported QPR since I was a baby,” Romany told www.qpr.co.uk. “And I heard about QPR calling members and season ticket holders to see how they were coping because of Coronavirus and I wanted to do something like that to help my local community.

“The walking route was very steep and it’s just as hard going down as it is going up.  The girls' football team that I play for has not been training recently because of Coronavirus and this has been keeping me fit for when I can play again.

“A lot of people are donating to the NHS at the moment, so I thought I’d raise money for another good cause that may need help. I want to say thank you very much to everyone who has been so generous so far.”

Well done, Romany!
