Brentford supporters are planning a 71st minutes of Applause for Ron Jacobs when we play Wolves.
There will also be a collection at the game to pay for Ron’s funeral (details below) who was a familiar face at home and away games.
Ron Jacobs, who most Bees fans would probably have known at least by sight, sadly passed away at the age of 71.
Ron Jacob`s cremation will take place on Wednesday 26th February at South West Middlesex Crematorium which is located in Hounslow Road, Hanworth, Feltham TW13 5JH. All supporters are cordially invited to attend and should they so choose wear Club colours.
The service, which will be conducted by the Revd Simon Carver, will commence at 3.20pm in the Ogden Chapel.
The Funeral Directors are G Saville & Son Ltd, 569 High Road, Wembley HA0 2DW.
Donations should be made payable to Brentford Football Club and addressed thus: Peter Gilham (RJ), c/o Brentford FC, Griffin Park, Braemar Road, Brentford Middlesex TW8 0NT
Once the proceeds from pledges, donations and the match day collection are collated, and the funeral expenses accounted for, any surplus will be directed as follows:
• A permanent memorial to be located at Griffin Park (and eventually the new stadium) in memory of fellow Bees fans who have passed away, which will provide a fitting memorial at the Club they held so close to their hearts.
• A donation to LAMBERT LODGE in Brentford who looked after Ron for the last 19 months of his life, and who are seeking funding to enable them to improve the lifestyle of their older vulnerable tenants.
Brentford supporters on the Griffin Park Grapevine have already pledged over £2000 and their will be bucket collections at the home game against Wolves.
