During their visit to West London this week, Bristol City FC made a special charitable donation. City were playing Brentford at our new stadium on Wednesday evening and were in the area early to prepare for the match. While in West London they made a donation to Acton Homeless Concern.

After one of their pre-match meals, City had some food left over. Rather than seeing it go to waste, they took it to the charity, based in the centre of Acton. As the food was being delivered, it was quickly turned around to help people in need in the area.

Acton Homeless Concern was founded in 1989 by the priests of the Parish of Our Lady of Lourdes in Acton as a practical response to the needs and problems of a large community of homeless people sleeping rough on local streets. It now runs two centres in the local area. Visitors get a free hot meal and a kind word without any judgment and then get set on a path to getting help.
