Following on from #mentalhealthawarenessweek, Brentford FC Community Sports Trust has launched its #BeeWell campaign, which aims to support children and adults with their physical and mental wellbeing.

With a recent survey highlighting how young people’s mental health has worsened since the Covid-19 crisis, the campaign aims to offer an array of online activities to support adults and young people during the crisis.

The campaign is being supported by EcoWorld London, the Principal Partner of Brentford FC and developer of the new stadium.

The #BeeWell campaign will include:
• An intergenerational project with the Premier League that sees children write letters of support to older Brentford fans who are self-isolating.
• More live online football sessions.
• Online Talk Club for Brentford fans and local residents
• Expansion of our welfare calls to our most vulnerable participants.
• Gradual resumption of community activities in line with government recommendations

The #BeeWell campaign follows on from the Trust’s #BeeatHome campaign, which saw a staggering 1,000 children and young people take part in our online activities during the government lockdown.

Lee Doyle, Chief Executive of Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, said, “The support of EcoWorld London and our Trust partners has enabled us to be responsive, flexible and creative during a time of increased need. We will continue to develop and refine ways to stay connected with our local communities, building towards a brighter future.”

Heng Leong Cheong, CEO of EcoWorld London, said, “Our business is committed to creating healthy communities, with mental health being a crucial part of that. This will provide much needed resources for those who need it the most in this challenging time, and we hope this will be the first of many initiatives in the UK.”

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
