Our match against Hull City on Sunday 6 May has been earmarked as a community match, raising funds to sustain and grow Brentford FC Community Sports Trust’s health, community, education and disability projects. For this game only, we will donate £1 to our Trust for every match ticket sold.
Established more than 30 years ago, the Trust uses the power of sport to inspire and empower people from all walks of life. With Brentford FC being crowned ‘Community Club of the Year’ four times, the Trust has long been regarded as one of the most innovative Sports Trusts in the country – delivering life-changing work to communities across west London.
Lee Doyle, Chief Executive of Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, said: “Working with the Club, we have committed to develop more activities in the coming years – using sport and education to change lives. You can help us do that by coming to support your local club. It’s a win-win!”
Dean Smith, Brentford FC’s Head Coach, said: "Our Community Sports Trust is a big part of what we are and who we are at Brentford FC. Our ties with the community are through the Trust and in my experience, it is one of the best that's out there and touching parts you wouldn't normally get to."
Isabella and her mum Victoria have certainly felt the benefits of the Trust’s community initiatives; they attend the ‘Short Breaks’ programme, which supports children with disabilities. For Isabella - who suffers from developmental delay and has hearing and sight issues - the programme has helped lift her confidence and broadened her horizons.
"This has helped her general confidence so much, and all the running has helped her physically as well” said her mum Victoria.
"The confidence she has gained spills out into everything. She is not great with things like a bike or scooter, but she is a bit more confident now to attempt things."
