Bristol City continue CHSW support

Bristol City Football Club is to continue to partner with Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) for another season.

Since the partnership began four seasons ago, Bristol City Football Club’s involvement with CHSW has generated more than £120,000 in funds and raised its profile across Bristol and beyond.

Midfielder Josh Brownhill is one of the latest City players to step forward as a new Charity Ambassador and he is looking forward to making the most of the opportunity.

He said, “It’s so humbling visiting Charlton Farm and seeing what a difference it makes to families whose children have been diagnosed with life-limiting conditions. Myself and the other ambassadors are excited to be involved in furthering the success of the partnership this season and spreading the word about the work CHSW does.”

Joining Josh alongside some of last year’s Ambassadors are Matty Taylor, Callum O’Dowda, Marley Watkins, Jamie McAllister and Supporter Liaison Officer Matt Parsons.

CHSW Community Fundraiser, Olly Slym, said: “Our ties with Bristol City have gone from strength to strength. What’s most inspiring is that the players are genuinely engaged with the work CHSW does and they go above and beyond in order to raise awareness of the cause.”

Most recently, some of the players visited Cabot Circus to have their pictures taken with fans in front of a CHSW frieze. Future plans include a sports lunch, bucket collections at matches, donations of signed memorabilia and a Christmas visit to CHSW’s Charlton Farm when families supported by the hospice get to spend quality time with the team.
