Luton Town & QPR stand together for Ukraine

11 March 2022

As Sunday’s crunch match between Luton Town and Queens Park Rangers approaches, with the sides battling it out for position in the Championship play-off race, the focus of the world remains quite rightly on the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

Town and QPR have a history of being united for compassionate causes, not least earlier this season when members of both clubs’ staff took part in a Prostate United run around the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium pitch in support of Mick Harford and Prostate Cancer UK.

As football clubs embedded in their local communities, the Hatters and Hoops will put on-pitch rivalries aside to once more stand together at Kenilworth Road, this time in solidarity with those people who are currently suffering so much in Ukraine, and countries to which they have fled as refugees.

The Luton Town Community Trust and QPR in the Community Trust have this week visited the Luton and Holland Park branches of the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain, who will both be represented at Sunday’s game.

The specially designed Ukrainian flag pictured here is available to download and print at home, to show your support. You can do so by clicking on the image at the bottom of the screen.

It contains a QR code via which you can donate to the British Red Cross DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, or with cash in bucket collections around the stadium or via this link - Donate Here!

Orchestrated by the Community Trusts and the two branches of the AUGB, there will also be collection points for donations of essential items listed below on Kenilworth Road for home supporters, and on Oak Road for the visiting Rangers fans.

Many caught up in the war have nothing and have been injured in the fighting. We have all seen heart-breaking images of people trying to flee the country, and those who have chosen to remain, not wanting to leave their homes.

They are in desperate need of:

1) First aid kits

2) Sterile dressings

3) Anti-septic wipes

4) Bandages

5) Sleeping bags

6) Pain killers

7) Tea

8) Coffee (No glass containers)

9) Tinned or packet goods, dry soups

10) Toothbrushes

11) Toothpaste

12) Children’s Nappies

13) Adult Nappies (to be used as large wound dressings)

14) Warm clothing, socks, hats etc

Thank you to both Hatters and Hoops for your support.

To the people of Ukraine, Luton Town and Queens Park Rangers Football Clubs stand with you.
