QPR aim to set fundraising record

Wed 12th Oct 2011 | IT & Technology

On the 15th October, former QPR centre-half and fans’ favourite Steve Wicks will return to his former Club to support the QPR in the Community Trust with its biggest fan appeal of the season.

Together, Steve and the Trust aim to set a record for the most amount of money ever raised by football supporters during a Premier League match, using JustTextGiving by Vodafone.  They have partnered with the UK’s first-ever free text donation service to enable fans to donate directly from their mobile phones throughout the game.

Wicks, said: “QPR has always been a community Club – even when I played most of my games for Rangers back in the ‘80s.

“The Community Trust is a fantastic project that continues to grow but, at the same time, we need your support to make it even bigger! Please back this worthwhile cause.”

The former R’s defender will take to the pitch at half-time to encourage supporters to be a part of this unique  football fundraiser by asking them to text ‘QPRW12 £3’ to 70070.

Every penny donated will go to the QPR in the Community Trust and texts cost nothing to send. Donators can also claim Gift Aid to increase their donation and help raise even more money.

Andy Evans, CEO of the QPR in the Community Trust, added: “To enable us to create more worthwhile sporting and social opportunities for our local community, we really need the support of the QPR family.

“The Community Trust programme continues to go from strength to strength and, with your texts of donation, we really can continue to make a difference.”
