This announcement From Dave Thomas - AKUTR's

Although still very much ‘work in progress’, I have been making lots of
changes to the AKUTR’s website in recent
weeks. New features include a portal for lift-sharing and exchanging
spare match tickets, my own Blog (which will only be published on-line),
plus one or two other ideas yet to be added. There is also a preview of
the current issue, plus subscription details and an archive of past

We are also aiming to raise funds over the course of the forthcoming
season, for our chosen charity, Samaritans, with a number of events and
initiatives planned. The reasons for our doing this are set out on the
site, with links to our ‘justgiving’ page, which explains even more.

With the season just around the corner, we have an advertising rates
card available on request via the website. Paid adverts in the print
version will be replicated for free on the website. Plus this year we
are introducing an on-line directory.

As you may already be aware, last season AKUTR’s won the award as Best
Football League Fanzine, for the second year in succession. As well as
setting our sights on the hat-trick, we are also aiming to make AKUTR’s
bigger and better this season, with the website playing a vital part of

Here’s to a successful season for our beloved club and a highly
enjoyable one for us supporters.

Other members of the group include Andy Evans (Community trust Chief Executive Officer), Martino Chevannes (Community Trust manager), Kevin McGrath (former director of QPR), Jane Carter (Director of Coaching for Hope) and Sharon Dyer who apart from being a fanatic QPR supporter has some impressive knowledge and experience of fund raising.

QPR1st - Disabled supporters update
Thursday, 23 July 2009
- QPR1st have been proud to contribute to the campaign to improve the facilities for disabled supporters. We are committed to ensuring that QPR is an inclusive environment for anyone who wants to enjoy a game of football.
- Supporters representatives recently met with representatives of the Club. It provided an opportunity to pass on feedback from disabled fans. Much of it was positive, in particular regarding the new area for supporters who use wheelchairs but there are some issues that still need to be addressed.
- The creation of a disabled supporters group was also discussed. This could provide a means by which disabled supporters could share opinions and experiences as well as enabling more effective liaison with the Club.
