THE annual Burton Albion Community Trust awards “A night to inspire” took place at the Pirelli Stadium on Thursday which was a great evening showcasing the good work that BACT does on a daily basis.On the night several awards were up for grabs in front of a big audience including manager Nigel Clough, chairman Ben Robinson, Academy Director Dan Robinson and many sponsors as well as Community staff, friends and family.
Brewers manager Nigel Clough said: “The community trust is absolutely vital to Burton Albion, the football club and the success of it then enables the community to go out and do more good work than they already do.”
Head of the Community Andy Taylor said after: “It has been a fantastic evening, I am absolutely delighted to see smiles on the winners faces, throughout the whole of the evening we’ve really been able to showcase what we do, with our partners, with our funders and we are very grateful to all our sponsors.
