Brentford fans have been praised for their generosity while on their travels last week. More than 600 Bees fans made the trip to Yorkshire for Brentford’s Sky Bet Championship match against Hull City last Saturday. While they were there, many of them visited Parkers Public House and made donations to a collection for local youngster needing hospital treatment.
Colin Revell, who carried out the collection, called Brentford FC earlier this week to express his thanks to Bees fans for their generosity. He outlined that the young girl – Lily – needed treatment in London and money was being raised by locals in Hull to send her down. He said Bees fans had more than done their bit.
“Lily suffers from epilepsy and has an illness linked to chromosome deficiency,” explained Colin. “She will be going to Great Ormond Street Hospital for treatment and we are raising money to help with the costs of travel to get there. The money will also help her parents stay in London while she is there.
“We went in to Parkers on Saturday to collect and Brentford fans were so generous. When we counted what had been collected we found it was more thank £120. I want to thank Brentford fans for all they have done for this family.”
