DISABILITY FOOTBALL PROGRAMME GIVEN BOOST FROM IT PROVIDER

ONE of our most popular disability football programmes has been given a boost thanks to a partnership between ourselves and an IT provider.

The Able Too Albion disability football programme offers five to 16 year olds the chance to learn new skills, play fun games and meet new friends in a relaxed and friendly environment.

The participants are also given opportunities to represent Burton Albion in matches and tournaments.

The project will now be supported by PKF Cooper Parry – BACT’s IT provider.

The Midlands-based firm has agreed a partnership with BACT that includes support for the Able Too Albion programme.

Brett Critchley, a partner at PKF Cooper Parry, said: “We are delighted to partner with Burton Albion Community Trust. We know all the trust’s programmes make a big impact including Able Too Albion, which we are now happy to be supporting.”

Andy Taylor, BACT’s Head of Community, said: “Partnerships like this enable us to build as a trust and continue to engage with thousands of people every week. Without these kind of partnerships it would be much harder for us to make these projects a success, so we thank firms like PKF Cooper Parry for their invaluable support.”
