|Buy a Brick for the Bees|
Become a permanent fixture at Brentford's home games
A brand new fundraising scheme for Bees United has been launched. The Build a Better Future campaign centres around the 'Buy a Brick' scheme successfully implemented at many other clubs including Middlesborough, Reading, Coventry, Crystal Palace, Walsall and S.V. Hamburg.
In conjunction with Briconomics, supporters can from Buy a Brick with their own personal inscription and have it placed on the wall round the Hive or on the wall inside the New Road entrance. The inscription could mark a special occasion or remember a family member who has passed away, perhaps even advertise a business.
These bricks are intended to be a permanent fixture and when Brentford eventually move to a new stadium these bricks will be removed and placed on a special wall, which will be incorporated into the stadium design.
You complete an application form, which can be obtained from the Bees Superstore or online on the link above, and return it Bees United or the Bees Superstore. You will then receive a letter and a certificate, which will show the inscription you want engraved on the brick. Prices are £39.50 with black lettering or £49.50 with gold lettering.
You will have ten days in which to alter the wording if it is wrong or to change your mind before the brick is produced. Once the ten days have elapsed there will be no going back! For economic reasons the bricks will be produced in batches and as soon as we have sufficient they will be placed in the designated area.
As an added extra you can have a replica of your brick produced that you can keep at home, in the office etc. The replica bricks can only be ordered at the same time as the original. The funds raised from this scheme will go towards the repayment of loans taken out by Bees United to acquire the majority share holding for Brentford Football Club.
Brian Burgess, Chairman of Bees United said, "This is your opportunity to help Build a Future for Brentford Football Club and will be a permanent reminder of the support, relatives, past, and present have given to our club. Buy a Brick, Build a Better Future."
