Supporters can help raise funds to pay for a commemorative brick at St Andrew’s in memory of Blues fan Brett James Taylor.
Brett, a lifelong Bluenose and season ticket holder, sadly passed away aged just 30 recently.
During this extremely tough time for Brett’s family and friends, plans have been put into place to donate to a a fund to pay for brick at the home of Birmingham City.
Over £200 has already been raised to enable the thoughtful gesture to go ahead, and any additional money will be distributed either to a further appropriate memorial or to a charity that Brett would have supported.
Brett’s sister, Hayleigh, is currently in touch with the club regarding a photo on the big screen and a mention in the Matchday Programme for the game against Wolves.
Ricky Friend, who set up to donation page, said: “I saw Hayleigh’s post in the Birmingham City Fan Talk page, so I just wanted to do something to help. I asked her if it would be OK to set up a page and she said it was, so I set it up for her family today.
“It’s great how people have reacted and we’re already up to £222, so we already have enough for the brick, but it will great to be able to help a charity with the cash as well.”
