Academy raise funds for CHSW

City Under-23s and Under-18s have raised £1,500 for Children’s Hospice South West.

The Academy players ran the Simplyhealth Great Bristol 10k earlier this month to support CHSW’s local hospice, Charlton Farm, which is situated just a mile from the club’s Failand training ground.

Charlton Farm offers a wealth of services to families whose children have been diagnosed with life-limiting conditions, including short breaks, respite, holistic care, emergency stays, a dedicated sibling service, end of life care and bereavement support. The hospice currently supports over 200 life-limited children from across Bristol, South Gloucestershire and BANES.

City have been in partnership with the hospice for the past four seasons, which has seen more than £100,000 raised.

Eight members of the club’s first team are charity ambassadors, including last year’s representative’s Frank Fielding, Joe Bryan and Korey Smith, who have since been joined Jamie Paterson, Marlon Pack, Bobby Reid, club captain Bailey Wright and assistant head coach Dean Holden.

CHSW community fundraiser, Olly Slym, said “The power of this partnership has been so remarkable with so many parts of the club coming together to support the cause.

"From Steve Lansdown attending our recent drinks reception to the Bristol City fishing team choosing us as their charity partner. This superb support is echoed by the Under-23s and Under-18s efforts by running through our awesome city."
