LAST week’s match shirt auction has raised a staggering £6,329 to help our charitable arm QPR in the Community Trust.
Queens Park Rangers' restarting fixture against Barnsley ended in a disappointing defeat, but the R’s donned a unique QPR in the Community Trust shirt, which had the QPR Community Day logo on along with the NHS logo to celebrate Community Day.
These match-worn shirts were then sterilised by a health professional and auctioned on MatchWornshirt.com and - thanks to your generosity - they have raised a fantastic amount to help the Trust through this tough time.
Supporters from all over the world including America, Australia, Norway, Denmark and the Republic of Ireland were successful bidders on the shirts, with each one of the first-team squad averaging a price of just over £300.
QPR in the Community Trust’s CEO Andy Evans told www.qpr.co.uk: “The amount this auction by Match Worn Shirt has raised has been fantastic - we are so grateful for the generous support shown by the R’s faithful.
“This pandemic has been a tough time for everyone and financially the Trust has really struggled, so to be able to raise such a huge amount is incredible and will help us to continue our work.
“I also want to thank Match Worn Shirt for their help with this process because without them and their great service this wouldn’t have been possible.”
