Brentford fans dug in to their pockets at our last two home games of the season to support collecting charities, as they have done all season. The Club welcomes charity collectors to many home games over the course of a season and fans play their part in supporting them. As well as the EFL charity partner Prostate Cancer UK, collections have been taken for bowel cancer charity Know the Score and the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal among others.
At the match against Queens Park Rangers last month, a group from Ealing Cancer Research collecting for the Bobby Moore fund raised £609.24. And at the game against Hull City on the final day of the season there was a special collection. Three teenagers - Harry Rice, 17, and 16-year-olds George Wilkinson and Josh McGuinness - were killed in Hayes by a car in late January. A Community Memorial Day was held at Harefield United FC, where the three played, on Saturday 12 May, to raise funds for the families and a collection at Griffin Park raised £1,300.
Brentford FC is committed to working with the local community, in partnership with Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, and supporting charities wherever possible. Collections can be held at Griffin Park on matchdays if requested in line with the Club’s Charity Policy. The policy can be seen here.
