BURTON Albion Community Trust are pleased to announce that we will be supporting local charity Derek’ Tree this Christmas to put smiles on children’s faces.

Derek’s Tree is based in Burton upon Trent and every year collects presents for disadvantaged kids in the local community in and around Burton upon Trent. Presents are collected for local organisations such as Barnado’s, Homestart and many more.

Unfortunately, this year is anticipated to be a record year for the charity, so much so they kicked off their campaign early, they have had over 3000 requests for presents to date with more coming in daily. The charity will officially end donations on Sunday 13th December. Then on December 14/15th the gifts will be whisked off to the recipients.

This year the Burton Albion Family will be supporting Derek’s tree and encouraging donations from members of the 1st team squad, Ladies Team, Academy sides and staff from Burton Albion FC and Burton Albion Community Trust.

We would also welcome community support and are encouraging as many community members as people to support us.
