TIME is running out for fans to donate to QPR in the Community Trust’s #WalkFromHome campaign, as it is set to end on Thursday.
The campaign, which was introduced as a replacement for the postponed #TigerFeet11 charity walk, has raised a jaw-dropping total, including gift aid, of £ 16,129.68 so far!
#WalkFromHome encouraged participants to sponsor their daily exercise in aid of the QPR Tiger Cubs Down’s syndrome football team and then nominate three friends to do the same.
Supporters from all over the world got involved and together we have reached one of our highest ever totals.
We feel now is a suitable time to end the campaign’s fund raising page and turn our attentions to supporting the whole of the QPR Trust during this tough time.
With COVID-19 still impacting public events, many of our sessions and courses which would usually generate much needed funds for the Trust to function on a daily basis have been cancelled.
This has meant that despite continuing to have such a huge impact on our local community, the Trust have been hit financially and would welcome any donations to help us through this tough time.
As a result, we have opened up a new fundraising page and any donations will contribute to the whole of the Trust’s work.
Fiona Hodgson, QPR in the Community’s Business Development Manager, told www.qpr.co.uk: “We would like to thank everyone that walked and donated to the #TigerFeet11 and #WalkFromHome fundraisers. We are delighted with the support this has given to the Tiger Cubs team.
“As a charity, the summer is usually an important time for us to raise unrestricted funds through soccer schools, events on the pitch and tournaments but all have been cancelled for this year.
Any donations made going forward will help to cover the core costs of the charity and we would like to again thank everyone that has supported us and continues to do so.”
