FURTHER funding to go towards the Burton Albion Community Football Centre has been received through the help of participants in the Staffordshire Ironman 2015 and Burton upon Trent Rotary Club.

The money was kindly donated during the half time interval at the Pirelli Stadium, as the Brewers took on Brighton in September, following on from the Ironman event in 2015. The money raised by the Rotary Club will also go towards the facility, which is now currently up and running, but is hoping to be fully completed for the end of summer 2017, with a community building currently being erected.

Burton Rotary Club said, “Burton upon Trent Rotary Club is delighted to be supporting the marvellous work which the Burton Albion Community Trust carries out in the community. Both organisations are very much community based and we very much look forward to continuing to work together for the benefit of the community of Burton upon Trent and the surrounding area”.
