Wright and Baggaley win Community accolade

Bailey Wright and Sophie Baggaley presented PFA Community Champion of the season award

Bailey Wright and Sophie Baggaley have been named the PFA Community Champions of the season for Bristol City FC. An award which recognises the contribution that players make off of the pitch to the local community.

Club captain, Bailey Wright, who is an ambassador for Children’s Hospice South West, has attended numerous events within the community over the course of the season and has been an advocate for the work carried out by the Community Trust.

In addition to this Wright has worked alongside the Community Trust to raise awareness and support for the homeless of Bristol.

Wright told the Trust that, “Bristol City has a great programme of providing sporting and education opportunities in the community.

“It’s important, but also an honour, that as players we support those initiatives. Likewise, with the Children’s Hospice South West – it’s a fantastic charity and very humbling to see the great work done there – and we just do a small bit to raise awareness and funds.”

Sophie Baggaley claimed the women’s award for her exceptional engagement with fans, where she acts as a role model for youngsters.

Furthermore, Baggaley has spent significant amounts of her time volunteering within the local community. Over the Christmas period Baggaley involved herself with several local charities wrapping presents and singing carols.

Chief Executive Officer of Bristol City Community Trust, Dan White, said, “Both Bailey and Sophie have been fantastic advocates of the Trust and the work that we do.

“It has been a pleasure to have their support and they are both worthy winners of the PFA Community Champion award.”
