The likes of Marcus Mumford, Richard Ashcroft, Serge Pizzorno and Peter Crouch have all signed up for the benefit match to support the West London community.

Game For Grenfell

A charity football match at Queen's Park Rangers' Loftus Road has been announced to support the victims of the Grenfell Fire and their wider community.

#Game4Grenfell will see the likes of Richard Ashcroft, Marcus Mumford and Kasabian's Serge Pizorrno gather to play a 90-minute-match in W12, just a mile away from the North Kensington tower block.

The event - which is the brainchild of QPR Chairman Tony Fernandes, Director of Football Les Ferdinand and Columbia Records' Ferdy Unger-Hamilton - will kick off on 2 September from 3pm.

Peter Crouch will also feature, alongside his firefighter best friend Gregg Jules, who was directly involved in the relief effort.

The footballer - who is currently filling in for Gordon Smart's on Radio X - said of the news: "It's a cause close to my heart, growing up down the road and starting my career at QPR. It's obviously a worthwhile cause, it was a horrible tragedy that occurred. 

"One of my best mate's is a firefighter - he was involved and was there the next day and he found it very hard to deal with. Any cause related has my full support."

The game will act as a community event to give something back to those affected by the Grenfell Fire disaster of 14 June, using football as the most powerful of tools to unite the people of West London.
