Community Trust shine in EFL Day Of Action

City stars from the men and women’s teams experienced firsthand the fantastic work delivered by Bristol City Community Trust during the EFL’s Day of Action.

The national event took place on Tuesday and saw all 72 EFL clubs showcase the positive impact sport can have in their local communities.

The club’s official charity were joined by Liam Walsh, Ryan Kent, Niclas Eliasson, Cauley Woodrow, Frank Fielding, Eros Pisano, kitman Scott Murray and Vixens trio Jasmine Matthews, Yana Daniels and Danique Kerkdijk, all of whom assisted in the delivery of various practical programmes across Bristol.

The EFL’s Day of Action is a fantastic way for clubs to raise awareness of the concerns in society surrounding education, health, community inclusion and participation, which combined, helps raise the issues on a national scale.

“The EFL Day of Action was a hugely successful day for everyone connected with Bristol City,” said Community Trust chief executive Dan White.

“We delivered five sessions across the city and each of these were supported by first team players, which in itself has a positive impact on our participants.

“I would like to thank each of the players for giving up their time to support the celebration of our community delivery, and huge praise goes to each staff member at the Trust for their continual hard work to make a difference.

“The EFL Day of Action has enabled us to showcase what we do at the Trust, not just today, but 365 days of the year.

“It’s been a fantastic 18 months for the Trust, having been named the Checkatrade South West Community Club of the Year, and we are already working on ways to reach wider areas of the community in the coming months.”
