This Christmas, Bees 50/50, the Official Matchday Lottery that helps raise funds for the Brentford FC Community Sports Trust is on a mission to give the Ealing Young Carers some time back, by funding a Christmas Party so they can let their hair down and enjoy an afternoon with friends.
There are more than 200 Young Carers who live in and around Brentford; local under 18s who look after someone in their family by taking on practical and often emotional caring responsibilities normally expected of an adult. 68% of young carers are bullied in schools, with many becoming isolated as a result of the consuming nature of their role.
Local Young Carer, Keishana, spoke to us at Griffin Park about her life and looking after her brother.
When you play. They play
A portion of every Bees 50/50 ticket bought this December will go towards the Ealing Young Carers Project and their Christmas Party, supported by our own BFCCST. Lottery tickets cost £2 and can be bought at the ground from sellers on matchday or online.
There are extra prizes in the draw for the festive period including; Brentford FC home shirts signed by club legends Kevin O’Connor and Bob Taylor, match tickets, a signed ‘BIg Book of Griffin Park’ and the regular cash prizes.
