Football Fans Treble Charity Fund

Bristol City supporters have rallied to help TREBLE the fund set up to help Oskar Pycroft secure the surgery he needs to be able to walk.

The six-year-old season card holder has bilateral spastic cerebral palsy and is unable to sit, stand or walk independently. 

He led City out as mascot in his wheelchair on Saturday, alongside suspended skipper Wade Elliott, for the home game with Preston North End. 

Oskar needs £70,000 to fly to the USA for surgery that represents his only chance of being able to walk independently. 

Within the first day of the club highlighting Oskar’s campaign on Friday, more than £1,000 was deposited into the youngster’s Just Giving account. 

On Saturday £9,051.99 was accrued from bucket collections at the game, including donations from the hospitality areas and Boardroom, where Oskar had been invited ahead of the match.

It means Oskar now has more than £15,000 in his fund, including donations from Preston and Bristol Rovers supporters. 

Lizzie Pycroft, Oskar’s mum, said: “It’s been an amazing weekend of fundraising and a huge amount has been raised. 

“Thanks to Bristol City FC, David Lloyd, Wade Elliott and everyone who has been involved. We’ve now reached 22 per cent of our target to make this surgery possible for Oskar.” 

The club’s supporter liaison officer David Lloyd commented: “Football is brilliant sometimes and when fans rally around a good cause it can be quite inspirational. 

“City supporters helped one of their own on Saturday and the money raised was tremendous.” 

Fans can still donate. Text OZZI70 and the chosen amount to 70070 (eg OZZI70 £5 to 70070). 

Better still donate online at justgiving.com/Oskar-70 and gain an extra 25 per cent on each donation through Gift Aid.
