BURTON Albion Football Club mascot Billy Brewer joined in the fun at a Christmas fair to help raise funds for a visit to Africa next May.
Billy Brewer joined hundreds of revellers at Oldfields Hall Middle School in Uttoxeter at the annual Christmas Fair, to support Burton Albion Community Trust in their fund-raising for the trip.
Matt Hancock, community delivery manager, told The Mail: “The trip to Ghana is fast approaching and we were delighted to be asked to come to Oldfields to promote the fair and raise some money to support the work we will be doing in Africa.” The funds raised will also go a long way in supporting the work of the trust in the wider Burton area.”
Mr Hancock added: “The children really enjoyed the penalty shootout competition and they especially enjoyed scoring past Billy Brewer.”
Burton Albion Community Trust will to taking a team of local volunteers to Ghana to take part in community projects.
