Stars of football and music come together for #Game4Grenfell
Queens Park Rangers’ Loftus Road Stadium will play host to a #Game4Grenfell on Saturday 2nd September 2017. QPR football club and their official charity QPR in the Community Trust come together with Sony’s Columbia Records and Toast Entertainment Group to show support for the community affected so tragically by the Grenfell Tower fire disaster on June 14th.
President of Columbia Records UK Ferdy Unger-Hamilton, Chairman of QPR Tony Fernandes and Director of Football Les Ferdinand will help facilitate two teams consisting of ex-professionals and celebrities play a 90-minute match in W12 – just one mile away from the North Kensington tower block.
Musicians such as RCA’s Olly Murs and Columbia’s Serge Pizzorno (Kasabian) will play alongside ex-pros including Les Ferdinand, David Seaman and Trevor Sinclair in the community event, to give something back to those affected by the fire last month.
Tickets for #Game4Grenfell – which has been organised by QPR in the Community Trust, the club’s official charity – will be priced at £15 for adults and £5 concessions. Monies from ticket sales and other fundraising initiatives around the event will be passed directly to the London Community Foundation for allocation to the Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund, distributing funds to survivors and the wider community affected by the fire.
Over 2,000 complimentary tickets will be issued to those directly affected by the tragedy, including families, the emergency services, volunteers, local residents and those who played their part in the recovery efforts in North Kensington.
Tickets for a #Game4Grenfell are on sale now.
