City Fans Raise £9,000-Plus For Local Hospice

Bristol City supporters have helped take the total raised for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) to more than £9,000 – and the season is still less than two months old!

The club has teamed up with the Charlton Farm hospice, based just a short drive from the club’s training base in Failand, to raise vital funds during the 2015/16 season.

City physio Steve Allen has become an ambassador for CHSW, along with goalkeeper Frank Fielding, kitman Scott Murray and football administrator and PA Donna Venables.

This week captain Aaron Wilbraham visited the hospice along with Fielding, Scott Wagstaff, Marlon Pack and Adam El-Abd for a tour of the facilites.

The players spent time with volunteers and other fundraisers to share stories, pose for pictures and sign autographs.

Throughout the season a number of club auctions will be earmarked at raising money for CHSW.

On Saturday, for the home game with Reading, a bucket collection helped raise £1,427, taking the grand total for the season to date to £9,304.

More auction items will be going online shortly, which should take the figure beyond £10,000!

CHSW spokesman Olly Slym said: “We have been overwhelmed by the support of Bristol City FC. It’s an exciting partnership and one which we hope will continue well into the future.

“We can’t thank Steve Allen and the other ambassadors enough for all their efforts in helping make the most of short and precious lives.”
