A GOFUNDME page has been set up by Stan Bowles’ family, in conjunction with Queens Park Rangers Football Club 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
A special thank you to all the truly amazing fans who have worked tirelessly, committing a huge amount of time and effort, to make this special day possible.
We cannot thank you enough.
