BREWERS FANS ASKED TO SUPPORT DEREK'S TREE THIS CHRISTMAS

28 November 2022

BURTON Albion FC is urging fans to support a local charity that has a long tradition of making Christmas special for youngsters who might otherwise miss out.

Derek's Tree is based in Burton and every year collects presents for disadvantaged children in the local community.

This year, there will be wide support across Burton Albion with the club collecting donations from members of the men’s and women’s first teams, the Academy and girls’ teams, as well as staff from the club and Burton Albion Community Trust.

Brewers manager Dino Maamria is pictured supporting the charity last year.

BACT Head of Community Matt Hancock said: “With the cost-of-living crisis biting. more families than ever will be facing a tough Christmas and having to make difficult decisions. That’s why we are going all out support this great local charity that has long tradition of giving a helping hand.

“We hope as many of our supporters as possible will join us in making a donation.”

The charity has had a record 3,000 requests for presents to date with more coming in all the time.

Donations are needed by December 9.
