Football League celebrates EFL Day of Action

Today marks the EFL’s Day of Action 2019 which will see all 72 EFL clubs come together to highlight the work undertaken to tackle some of society’s biggest issues.

EFL clubs across the Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two will each host events throughout the day designed to showcase the very best of the work done to tackle a diverse range of social issues.

Bristol City Community Trust’s staff and coaches work with a large percentage of the local community of a daily basis, across various programmes and schemes, providing them with the opportunity to develop, improve and enjoy activities which aren’t necessarily easy for them to access.

The club’s official charity have several activities taking place to celebrate the EFL’s Day of Action 2019, as they do on a daily basis, with Nathan Baker and Niki Mäenpaää also showing their support.

The duo visited the Trust’s Sports Business and Entrepreneurship degree course to listen to the students’ business plans and discuss how strategy and organisation can be related between business and professional sport.

EFL Club Community Organisations are the largest network of sporting charities in the UK and the EFL and its clubs invested £80m into communities throughout 2018.

EFL Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey said: “The EFL Day of Action brings together all 72 Clubs to highlight the special role they play in enhancing the lives of millions of people around the country.

 “The scale of ground-breaking projects across our network of Clubs continues to grow year-on-year and their delivery is integral to our aims of improving lives in a range of areas including inclusion, homelessness, education and health.”

If you would like more information on any of the work carried out by Bristol City Community Trust, please call 0117 963 0636.
