The EFL's fifth annual Day of Action took place this week. On Wednesday, 14 April, Brentford Football Club and its Community Sports Trust joined the rest of the EFL in highlighting the positive impact football has in changing people’s lives. Despite the financial and logistical challenges that EFL clubs have faced during the last 12 months, community work has remained at the heart of football, with clubs and club community organisations (CCOs) continuing to provide vital support to some of the most vulnerable people living in England and Wales. And Wednesday was a celebration of all that had been done and continues to be done.
Brentford marked the day with an interview with Club Vice-Chairman Donald Kerr, who is also a Trustee of Brentford FC Community Sports Trust and the English Football League Trust. There was also a review of the #BeeInTheTeam webinar campaign, which saw many famous faces interact with Trust participants. See more here.
The EFL produced a gallery of some of the work that had gone on up and down the country, which can be seen here. There was also a video review and lots more. See more below.
Brilliant to hear 5 Live give an hour on Colin Murray’s show last night to the EFL Day of Action and the touching human stories of what the clubs had been doing in the community. That’s taking football seriously. Clubs are making such a difference. https://t.co/Xjyi91vUPr— John Cross (@johncrossmirror) April 15, 2021
