ON Saturday Queens Park Rangers football club recognised some of the unsung heroes of west London.
A fundamental part of Community Day was to highlight and celebrate those who have shown a fantastic service and commitment to the local area.
Nine unsung community heroes were acknowledged through a half-time pitch presentation after nominations were submitted by R’s fans online.
You can see the names of the winners and what they’ve achieved to deserve this award on the gallery below.
QPR Community Trust CEO Andy Evans explained to www.qpr.co.uk just how important it was that we appreciate what these people are doing to improve the lives of many in the local area.
He said: “Some of these people have been vitally important over the years and it’s nice for them to have a day where they get to see how appreciated they are.
“Everyone knows how important the local community is to QPR and in the last few years, I feel that it has become even more evident. As a football club, we understand how vital it is to develop a relationship with the people who live in our community and celebrate some of the people who are doing a fantastic job.”
Two of the winners on the day expressed their gratitude for picking up the award and managed to enjoy the afternoon despite the disappointing result that followed.
Chris Charles, a driving force behind #TigerFeet10 tweeted: “QPR, a credit to the beautiful game off the field.”
Whilst Peter Hamm, who is a long-standing volunteer, stated: “I’ve Supported QPR for over 60 years and seen lots of ups and downs. However, my faith in QPR in the Community is as strong as ever.”
