Two-time Commonwealth Games silver medallist, Rajiv Ouseph, was presented to the QPR faithful on Saturday during a half time on pitch cameo appearance in which he handed Britain’s number one singles wheelchair player Gobi Ranganathan a cheque for £500 from the QPR Community Trust.

The donation will enable lifelong QPR fan Gobi the chance to travel and compete in a badminton tournament held in Israel which starts on Thursday 25th November.

Ouseph, who despite his London roots supports Liverpool, then took his seat in the Directors box as high flying QPR went on to beat Preston in a 3-1 win to keep them top of the nPower Championship.

Rajiv said, “It was nice to be invited for the presentation and being a guest at the QPR directors box at the grounds was great. Gobi Ranganathan Rajiv at QPR presentationis a massive QPR fan and I’m sure the QPR Community Trust presentation meant a lot to him.

Gobi said, “I’m a season ticket holder and it’s nice to have this support. The QPR Community Sports Trust have supported me for a long time now and I appreciate it all.

As this is their last major tournament of the year they made a nice donation for me so I could be at my tournament. It was nice for Rajiv to show his support for me as well, being the leading men’s singles player. "
