Moses Odubajo has thanked Brentford fans after more than £750 was raised for the Malaria No More UK charity at Griffin Park last week. Brentford FC offered support for the charity at the game against Bristol City last Saturday. The players wore t-shirts during the warm-up and there was a charity bucket collection at the ground. In total, £764.76 was raised to try and prevent more deaths from malaria.
Moses is a Special Ambassador for Malaria No More UK and worked with the Club to give the charity a platform last week. Moses’ mother died from malaria when he was 13 and he used his grief at her death to drive his career. Moses’ story can be read here, and he spoke about his work with the charity at a press conference before the match.
Moses said: “I’m massively grateful to everyone who got involved, it’s a team effort. Thanks to each and every fan who donated, to my team mates for being so up for it and to the Club for giving us this valuable opportunity. Malaria is one killer disease we can beat in our lifetimes. Let’s make it happen.”
