THE amazing difference Burton Albion Community Trust makes on a daily basis was highlighted at the charity’s annual awards night.
The event, held at the Pirelli Stadium, was a glittering showcase for the work BACT delivers in the community.
Burton Albion Chairman Ben Robinson and first team manager Nigel Clough were among the invited guests with the Albion Suite packed with supporters, sponsors and partners who work with BACT year round.
Matt Hancock, BACT Head of Community, said: “It was a brilliant evening which enabled us to not only celebrate the achievements that have been made over the last 12 months but also to thank all the people who have helped us deliver such a diverse and important programme.
“Without the support of Burton Albion Football Club and all of our sponsors and partners none of this would be possible and I hope they all saw how their backing helps us make an important difference out there in the community every week of the year.”
