Footballers and fans have raised a phenomenal £23,000 to help victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.
Both Brentford and Southampton agreed to donate profits from ticket sales from their pre-season friendly to boost funds for families affected by the blaze.
The catastrophic North Kensington fire happened just four miles away from Brentford 's Griffin Park.
The game which ended in a 2-2 draw was attended by 4,825 people, with just over 1,500 tickets sold to Southampton fans who supported the fund-raising initiative.
Around £20,000 profit came from ticket sales with the remainder from bucket collections, sale of programmes and donations from Brentford FC's partners.
Residents who lived at Grenfell Tower were also invited to the match along with members of the emergency services that helped during the tragedy.
A donation from Carlsberg and Fullers provided free drinks for the invited guests.
Mark Devlin, Brentford FC chief executive, said: “The club was pleased to be able to play a small part in raising funds and providing some respite for both those directly affected by the disaster and our magnificent emergency services.
"The response from fans both in their attendance and in the further donations on matchday was overwhelming and they helped us to raise more than £20,000 in profits from ticket sales and bucket collections. I would also like to thank our Club partners – Utilita, Novotel, Brentford, Advanced and Curtis Sport for their support of the cause.
“In total, we have been able to raise more than £23,000 which will be donated to the Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund: Grenfell Tower Fire. Thank you to everyone for their generosity.”
