Ron Jacobs, a Bees fan known by many both home and away, either personally or by sight, sadly passed away on Wednesday of last week, aged 71.

Sadly he has no known “next of kin” and as such may end his days in a paupers’ grave.

But the family that is Brentford Football Club and its supporters have already shown their true colours and in no time at all over £1,000 had been pledged to give Ron a dignified farewell.

Both at the Fans Forum on Thursday and also at the home game versus Crawley Town at Griffin Park this Saturday, there will be a bucket collection to help raise the funds required to give one of our own a send off,  of which he would have been proud.

Once the pledges and donations have been assessed, arrangements will be confirmed and advertised. Should there be any surplus funds it is hoped they will go towards a permanent memorial in memory of those Bees fans who are no longer with us.
