The bucket collection at Friday night's televised clash with Aston Villa helped raise invaluable funds for Bristol City Deaf Football Club. Due to the generosity of the City and Villa supporters alike, a total of £1,274 was raised. A representative from Bristol City Deaf said: “On behalf of the team I would like to extend a huge thank you to Bristol City Community Trust for their continued support and allowing us to hold a bucket collection at Ashton Gate. “The funds raised are fantastic and I cannot thank both sets of supporters enough for their generous donations.” Bristol City Deaf compete in the National Deaf Cup and South Deaf League and they are the only deaf football club in the South West. All the donations raised from the fixture will assist the team in funding their travel to fixtures. Source:Bristol City Football Club
