The postponement of a game earlier this month left Brentford FC with some unused supplies which were donated to a local charity. The Bees were due to play Bristol City on Satuday 2 January but the game was called off the evening before. This postponement came after preparations for the game inside the stadium had been made.
The Club was left with sandwiches, milk and other suppliedo on site that would not be used. A decision was made to donate it to a local charity. A delivery was made to Penny Wade House, in Richmond.
