COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS CELEBRATED AT CHARLTON HOME GAME

22 January 2024

BURTON Albion welcomed a group of community champions at our game against Charlton on Saturday.

Local community heroes were celebrated up and down the country as part of the EFL Community Weekends campaign.

At Burton Albion we highlighted the great community work undertaken locally and the people who participate in it by creating a first team of community champions.

They were invited to the game with a guest and formed a guard of honour welcoming the two teams onto the pitch.

Burton Albion Community Trust Chairman Phil Pusey was on hand to welcome the champions to the Pirelli Stadium

He said: “Burton Albion Community Trust is totally focused on making life better for local people through a range of activities and support. 

“We rely on a great staff team as well as lots of amazing volunteers to deliver everything, and so rightly our 11 community champions are held up as wonderful role models during this EFL Community Weekend for their significant contribution to many of our vital ongoing projects. 

“They are true everyday heroes and we hope they enjoyed their moment in the spotlight, and that other fans are inspired to get involved with the trust and its variety of programmes."

John Widdowson, Interim Head of Community at Burton Albion Community Trust, said: “This was a nationwide EFL initiative highlighting the amazing impact clubs and their community trusts make on a day-to-day basis.

“Burton Albion is a club that has supporting the community at the heart of everything it does and we were delighted to welcome our community champions as great ambassadors for the wonderful work that goes on.”
