QPR in the Community Trust’s #WalkFromHome campaign has raised a fantastic £3,000 in its first 24 hours!
The simple-to-take-part-in campaign – which officially launched at 9am on Monday – is a replacement for the postponed #TigerFeet11 charity walk. It encourages people to sponsor their own daily piece of exercise in aid of a good cause and then nominate three friends to do the same.
The Tiger Cub team is QPR’s official football team for children and young people with Down’s Syndrome and it has been running for the last 11 years.
QPR in the Community Trust CEO Andy Evans said: “It’s been a brilliant start to the campaign and hopefully we can keep it going throughout the week.
“We’re determined to beat our sponsorship target of £12,500 and I saw lots of pictures yesterday [on Monday] of QPR fans, staff and players on their walks – despite that cold wind.
“I’m looking forward to seeing a few more photos as the week goes on.”
He added: “Our annual Tiger Feet walks are always so important, in terms of the money they raise for the Tigers Cub team; it allows us to keep the team running and take them to special events and purchase new equipment.
“If #WalkFromHome could help us raise a similar amount of money to previous Tiger Feet walks then that would be fantastic.”
