QPR In The Community Trust - Inspiring Change





Benjamin Lovegrove running the 2017 London Marathon in aid of QPR in the Community Trust ...

AVID R’s fan Benjamin Lovegrove is going the extra mile for QPR in the Community Trust in 2017 – and you can show your support ahead of this year’s London Marathon.
Benjamin will be donning his running shoes to raise vital funds for the club’s charitable arm, which continues to inspire change in the local and wider community.
A lifelong Ranger, Benjamin explains why the R’s – and indeed the Trust – means so much to him and his family.
“Supporting QPR has been passed down my family through three generations,” he told www.qpr.co.uk
“My grandfather was born in view of Loftus Road and my father took me to my first match when I was about 10 (a 2-0 home win over Arsenal in 1990!). The next season I was mascot for our home match to Nottingham Forest and, despite the loss, I got to meet legends like Alan McDonald, Ray Wilkins and ‘Sir’ Les Ferdinand. I have been gripped by the ups and downs ever since.
“My father was at the 1967 League Cup final and as he walked away from Wembley on that magical day in 2014, he turned to my brother and I and said ‘I never thought I’d have another memory like that’. We now have another memory; QPR is in the Lovegrove genes.”
He added: “I moved back to the west London area a few years ago and I am very aware of the fantastic work that QPR in the Community Trust does throughout the community, especially their work with youth and diversity projects. 
“The Tiger Cubs, in particular, touch my heart and I love seeing their laps of honour around the stadium at half-time. It’s often the favourite part of my day. This wouldn’t be possible without QPR in the Community Trust. 
“It’s an honour to be running the London Marathon for the club and it fulfils many lifelong dreams. You R’s!”
