WESTERN Power Distribution has agreed to show their support for community projects delivered by Burton Albion Community Trust (BACT) for the following year.

By becoming a BACT Patron, Western Power Distribution has committed to donating a generous £1,000. The monies will go towards developing and supporting mainly the health and inclusion projects that we deliver in the local community.

Matt Hancock, Head of Community, said: “It’s a fantastic donation and we’re really grateful for this.

“We welcome any donations with open arms, because ultimately it helps and allows our staff to deliver to the local people.”
