Thanks to Ken Loach and Bath City Community Foundation, one Southside family enjoyed a special day out at Twerton Park in November with Andy Iles, who is both an experienced worker at Southside and a trustee of the foundation.

Katie and her three children enjoyed the match against Dartford with a stunning performance by Bath City and a 3-0 win.

Katie is a Southside Family Champion volunteer and featured in the ‘A Roof Over My Head’ film, commissioned by St John’s Foundation and created by Meaningful Films. We are very grateful to Katie for using her strength and personal experience to help people understand needs and challenges in our local communities and where services can be improved.

Katie loved the experience: “Thank you so much, the boys really enjoyed it. J would like to go again 🙂 lol considering he didn’t like football before this match … thank you for whole experience. It was amazing, different to watching on TV. Bath City are a really good team:))”

Ken Loach is a great supporter of Southside and Bath City, where he can often be seen on the terraces cheering on his team. The special screening of ‘Sorry We Missed You’ at Bath City FC on 23rd November raised funds for Southside, Bath City Community Foundation and the club. The Q&A that followed this powerful drama enabled us all to understand more about the stories that inspired this film to be made, the injustice and challenges for workers and families in the gig economy, how Ken worked with the actors and the film making process.
