Academy to run for CHSW

Bristol City Academy are running the Great Bristol 10k on Sunday, May 5th to raise money for the Children’s Hospice South West.

Over 20 Under-18 players and staff have already signed up and are looking to raise at least £2,500 for City’s partner charity.

A recent visit to the hospice at Charlton Farm has inspired the Under-18 squad to step outside of their comfort zones and run a distance they wouldn’t usually cover in one go.

Children’s Hospice South West provides end of life care for young people and their families. Staff work tirelessly to support these children but rely on financial help to stay functional.

Pete Coleman, Head of Welfare at the Academy, says: "It is now our third year taking part in the Bristol 10k and each year we’ve raised a little more for the Hospice. It’s an opportunity for everyone to get behind our boys and also raise money for this outstanding charity”.

Please donate here. All donations will go directly to CHSW.

Supporters are also encouraged to fill the streets of Bristol and cheer on our runners.
