MORE than £330 has been donated to Burton Albion Community Trust thanks to the efforts of the local branch of timber merchants Harlow Bros.

The staff at the Hawkins Lane site organised a raffle to raise the cash after hearing about the good work the trust does in the community.

Burton branch manager Simon McIlvenna said: “I came to a Club Albion business breakfast at the Pirelli Stadium and heard about the Burton Albion Community Trust and we got to know about the important work they are doing.

“We therefore decided to do our raffle in aid of the trust. Harlow Bros is a business that wants to support the community, and this seemed a good way of doing it.

“We have seen significant investment which has improved facilities for our customers and on the back of that we had a relaunch in April and as part of that we started our raffle in aid of the trust and raised a total of £332.”

Matt Hancock, Burton Albion Community Trust’s Head of Community, said: “I would like to thank all the staff at Harlow Bros for their support.

“We couldn’t make the impact we do in the community without the support of our valued partners and it’s always great when local companies want to help us make a difference.”

Harlow Bros has seven branches in the East Midlands. It’s a 92-year-old family business run by the third generation of Harlows. There are four division that encompass the business with a head office at Long Whatton
