QPR In The Community Trust - Inspiring Change

Content

Events

QPR in the Community Trust runs a series of annual events to raise funds for the charity. All money raised at these events goes into providing disadvantaged or deprived residents of West London opportunities that will have a positive impact on their health, education, social inclusion or sports participation.

We have been running annual events for two years now since becoming a Registered Charity (1127806) and they have proven very popular with fans, staff, former and current players.

 

For information about previous year’s events and booking to take part in our events please go to the relevant tab.

Other ways that you could help raise funds for the Trust:

  •  Auctions – Throughout the year the Trust auctions items to fundraise for the charity e.g. QPR players items.  Updates on items we are auctioning will appear on the Trust and QPR official website.
  • Are you taking part in a sponsored event and would like to donate the money you raised to the Trust? If yes then please set up a fundraising page on our Virgin Money Giving website: click here >>
  • Give as you earn (GAYE) - which enables you to give directly from your pre tax salary so the QPR in the Community Trust would gain money which usually goes to the taxman. The money comes out of your pay packet before the taxman gets to it- so you can pass the tax relief on to the Trust. For more information: click here >>
  • We can help - If your school / club / organisation would like to do a penalty shoot out competition, we can provide the equipment, staff and sponsor forms, as well as prizes related to the amount of sponsorship money raised. We will then split the proceeds 50/50 with the fundraisers and the QPR in the Community Trust.
  • If you would like to help to raise money for the Trust in another way then please contact Business Development Manager Fiona Hodgson on fionah@qpr.co.uk

Football Aid

Every year, 28 enthusiastic Super Hoops supporters compete for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of playing on the hallowed turf at Loftus Road by bidding on line at www.footballaid.com

Launched in 2001, Football Aid has been immensely popular with fans of all Clubs, but more importantly it has raised a significant amount of money for charity. And QPR has contributed its fair share.

Football Aid Chairman Craig Paterson said:

“Since Football Aid was more than 9000 players have enjoyed the very unique experience that we offer. We are delighted that this year 900 more will share that experience.”
“With the support of our successful bidders and our legends, we have been able to make donations to several charities and good causes around the UK. This is truly a win-win experience for everyone.”

Football Aid allows fans the chance to 'Live the Dream' and take part in the ultimate football experience. They get to pull on their favourite shirt, run through the tunnel onto the hallowed turf and play in the stadium of their dreams for either 45 or 90 minutes alongside their football heroes from QPR’s history.

The charity matches are held at the end of the football season at iconic stadiums around the UK and in Europe. More than 300 games have taken place since the concept was first introduced in 2001.

Football Aid has so far generated £1 million for registered charities and voluntary organisations. All funds raised from events are distributed through Football Aid's parent charity, Field of Dreams towards diabetes research, education and management projects and also to charities nominated for funding by the clubs involved in the events.
