Fanzone foodbank

Post by 222gers » Thu Sep 12, 2019 2:30 pm

Just seen on LFW that there will be a foodbank in operation in the Fanzone before every match. The Fanzone is situated at the north end of Hammersmith park accessed by South Africa Rd.
I'm glad the club is keeping up its good work in the community.

Should we have a round of " Boris, Boris youre a reeky muddy-mettled haggard, Boris youre a reeky muddy-mettled haggard" on number 10 minutes just to make a point? I mean people shouldn't need food banks in the 5th sorry 6th richest country in the world... just saying.

Using the Gross National Income Per Capita method we are 18th in the world. Trouble is a hell of a lot of people have been left behind. It's a disgrace really.

Are you questioning Boris's democratic credentials? :wink:

Without wishing to become known as a Boris supporter, I'm not quite sure how he can be blamed for that in his short time "in charge". Probably a few ahead of him in the list for blame on that!!

Rather than indulging in the politics, shouldn't we be encouraging fans to give generously? A well-run charity, where the benefits are clear, simple and direct, can often be better value than the schemes of politicians which have hidden costs.

PS If this is going to drift away from being a QPR topic, then there is another home for it in QPRdot.org.
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.

No, individual generosity and charity should be the icing on the cake (look at seb from Argentina) - in a developed and supposedly civilized society no one should be reliant on charity and the whims of for their most basic needs. It's outrageous that the government should abrogate their responsibility forcing the public to show the decency they lack in not letting their fellow citizens suffer.

I'm all for fans giving generously and QPR being charitable, i'm obviously glad there is a foodbank set up, as it's clearly needed and hope we do give generously but it's an absolute disgrace there should be any need for this whatsoever.

Yep, figurehead of the leave campaign, bank rolled by tax avoiders and disaster capitalists and a member of the government that inflicted austerity on this country. I can't think of many better people to blame since Cameron and Osborne slunk off.

I respect your opinion, Satch. I reached mine because I fear the consequences of government trying to do too much. It cannot cover every eventuality and when charities fill in the inevitable gaps, to me, it is the outcome that matters. The UK is not alone in having foodbanks, incidentally - there are foodbanks in France and Germany, for example.

Yes this now needs moving to the other forum as a few have chosen to make it political.

I took some items to the foodbank at about half past two. They didn't seem to have a lot of people donating, hopefully it was just a slack period. This is a fine initiative by the club.
