Worker Bees Watch Brentford For Free
Fans take part in a ‘Football Clear-Up’ at Riverside Lands Sports Ground
12 Loyal Brentford Football Club fans took part in a ‘Football Clear-Up’ event last Saturday at Riverside Lands in Chiswick, to help clear up Riverside Lands Sports Ground.
Football Clear-Up volunteers took part in two hours of volunteer work which included litter clearing, weeding and replenishing some of the gravel entrance. In return Brentford FC Community Sports Trust (BFCCST) working with Football Clear-Up, donated complimentary tickets to the fans who took part in the ‘Clear-Up’. The volunteers were also welcomed onto the pitch for a half time photograph.
Riverside Lands - home of Old Meadonians FC, is the venue for the all-new 567’s Youth Football Tournament. The tournament is a community partnership event between Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, Chiswick Community School, Old Meadonians FC and Lovell Partnerships Ltd. The tournament is open to boys & girls team aged from U7s through to U14s.
Andrew Bell, Managing Director of Football Clear-Up said, “It was great to see Brentford fans come out and help the Community Sports Trust and a local sports club. We only had a short space of time to make a difference and I think that we really did that. Some of the volunteers couldn’t make it to the match, they were just pleased to be helping out”
Tom Sanders, Brentford fan and volunteer said, “I go to as many Bee’s matches as possible but with the indifferent season we’ve had I can’t always justify spending £20. Football Clear-Up has given me the opportunity to help the club and get a ticket out of it.”
BFCCST Chief Executive Lee Doyle said, “Brentford FCCST are delighted to support ‘Football Clear Up’ again this year. Our new 567’s Youth Football Tournament is a major part of our summer activity, and to be able to assist our hosts for the day is great for us to do. The event proved a great success and we look forward to helping Andy develop the programme in the years to come.”
