Stan Bowles Alzheimer's Fund


  • Stan Bowles Alzheimer's Fund

    This GoFundMe page: has been set up by Stan Bowles’ family, in conjunction with QPR, to provide Rangers fans – and the footballing public at large – with the chance to show their support for the legendary former footballer, who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

    Since news broke in the summer of 2015 regarding Bowles' ill-health, the outpouring of affection and support for the popular maverick – who made 315 appearances for the Hoops, scoring 97 goals between 1972 and 1979 – has been quite overwhelming.

    The Bowles family are encouraging supporters to split their donations between this GoFundMe account – for Stan’s daily welfare and ongoing care – and the Alzheimer’s Society: - the UK's leading dementia support and research charity, to help raise awareness of the disease.

    The GoFundMe account has been set-up with the help of the PFA.

    Thanks for you'R' support

    The Bowles Family / QPR

    Help spread the word!

      Nottingham Forest raising awareness and funds for Stan

      NOTTINGHAM Forest and Queens Park Rangers Community Trusts have teamed up to help raise awareness and funds for former player Stan Bowles in his battle with Alzheimer’s.

      The combined efforts of both Community Trusts working together is a first in the game as both sets of fans unite to raise vital funds for the respected charities.

      The Just For Stan Fund and local charity Bloomin Dementia as well as both Community Trusts will be beneficiaries of various activities throughout the day when the two sides meet on Saturday at The City Ground.

      Bowles made more than 300 league appearances for the R's from 1972-79 before moving to Nottingham Forest where he was part of the 1979-80 squad that won the European Cup. Stan featured 19 times for The Reds, scoring twice.

      The forward made more than 560 career league appearances in total, featuring for other Clubs such as Manchester City, Crewe Alexandra, Carlisle United, Leyton Orient and Brentford.

      The Community Trusts from both clubs have come together to arrange events around the matchday. Collection points will be available on the day for supporters wishing to donate to the aforementioned charities.

      Alternatively supporters can donate via the NFFC Community Trust Just Giving page here. All the monies received through this donation page will be shared equally amongst the four beneficiaries.

    Well deserved point and in my opinion a decent display, could have nicked it at the end with Lynch one on one with keeper. Seemed to set up as a 4-3-3 although that did seem flexible. Whatever it was team seemed well balanced, only real poor performance was Washington who again was very poor, seemed to be denied a clear penalty when Smith was again hauled to the floor. MOTM was clearly young Smythe who at times tore them to pieces, I think we have a little gem there, Eze also looks a fantastic prospect and hopefully nex...
