QPR's Support for the Kiyan Prince Foundation

Football League- QPR Support for Kiyan Prince Foundation

Queens Park Rangers are supporting a foundation in memory of teenager Kiyan Prince.
Former QPR youth team player Prince was stabbed to death aged 15 after a row at the London Academy in Edgware just over two years ago.
Since then, his father Mark has worked tirelessly to set up the Kiyan Prince Foundation with the aim of educating youngsters of the dangers of knife and gun crime.
Now his plans for a lasting tribute to his son have been taken to the next level thanks to help from QPR and Sky 1 show Noel's HQ.
The programme's producers have found a team of experts - including a child psychologist, business mentor and public relations guru - to work with the Foundation in developing its activities.
QPR have dedicated the London derby with Charlton Athletic on November 25 to the Foundation.
The charity will be given free advertising space in the programme and on the Loftus Road big screen and collection buckets will be situated around the ground.
In addition, the club has promised to embark on a more long-term relationship with the Foundation.
Mark Prince will be invited to lead six workshops during the 2008/09 season as part of the Kickz Scheme, which helps youngsters from deprived areas play organised sport.
QPR's Football in the Community Manager Andy Evans, said: "The enduring image associated with Kiyan is the picture of him in the QPR kit he loved.
"As a club, we are one hundred per cent committed to helping Mark Prince to continue with the outstanding work he has already undertaken.
"We will use the Charlton fixture to celebrate the life of Kiyan, who would have been celebrating his 18th birthday on that day, as well as to highlight the excellent work Mark is doing in the local communities."
