QPR’s #WalkFromHome campaign has now passed its donation target of £12,500!
The campaign was introduced last week as a replacement for the #TigerFeet11 charity walk, which had to be postponed in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
#WalkFromHome encouraged participants to sponsor their own piece of daily exercise and then nominate three friends to do the same.
All of the money raised through #WalkFromHome will go towards the running of the Tiger Cubs, QPR’s official football team for children and young people with Down’s syndrome.
At 11am on Thursday, the £12,500 mark was passed and QPR in the Community Trust CEO Andy Evans is hugely grateful to everyone who took part in the campaign.
He said: “This is a fantastic achievement and something that everyone who took part in #WalkFromHome can be proud of.
“QPR is a really special football club and this campaign has just shown that again. To have raised this amount of money for charity in the middle of a global pandemic is truly amazing. I have to thank everyone who played their part in #WalkFromHome.”
Supporters, staff members and players, past and present, have all rallied behind #WalkFromHome, both by donating to the cause and by spreading the message on social media.
The donation that took the campaign past its £12,500 target on Thursday morning came from supporter Graham Beach, who kindly gave a huge £500.
He said: “Watching the Tiger Cub team and staff do their lap of honour around the R’s pitch always brings a big proud tear to my eye, so it’s a great pleasure to be able to assist towards the phenomenal work done by the Tiger Cub family!”
