MONDAY 24th May saw the annual celebrations for what is now commonly known as #BobbyZamoraDay, as we reminisced on that memorable afternoon at Wembley Stadium.
And in support of the #WalkFromHome2 campaign, club ambassador Andy Sinton and QPR in the Community Trust CEO Andy Evans put on their walking shoes and switched west for north west London, all in aid of the QPR Tiger Cubs.
QPR’s very own Down's syndrome side kicked off the day with a fantastic re-creation of Zamora’s iconic goal, before Sinton and Evans began their walk to Wembley.
Starting in W12 and 10,000 steps, 5.1 miles and a soaking later, both the Andys arrived in Wembley as they replicated the walk which many R’s fans took on that memorable day seven years ago.
A quick photo was taken and with the nominations done, just like that the walk to Wembley was over.
After completing the walk, club ambassador Sinton was full of praise for the Tiger Cubs, telling www.qpr.co.uk: “The work they do is amazing, it puts smiles on so many people’s faces and that is what QPR is all about.
“Albeit in a much smaller way than usual, it was nice to be out in our local community and reminisce on that fantastic day, all in aid of the wonderful Tiger Cubs.”
In addition, Trust CEO Evans said: “Hopefully this will be our last virtual challenge, but your support during what continues to be a tough time will be greatly appreciated and this walk was about trying to raise awareness of the Walk From Home 2 campaign.
“I know Dominic Ball, Alejandro Faurlin and Clint Hill have already got involved and we look forward to seeing your entries and hopefully raising a fantastic amount for the Tiger Cubs.”
