THE chairman of Burton Albion has thrown his weight behind a campaign to donate Christmas gifts to those serving in the armed forces.
Yesterday the Mail revealed it was backing the Support Our Soldiers campaign, which Burton MP Andrew Griffiths had initiated.
Now, Brewers chairman Ben Robinson has said he will try and rally support from his contacts for the campaign.
He said: “We all appreciate how much our service personal do for our country.
“I think this is a great initiative that has been launched and we are delighted to be able to support that.”
Items such as sweets and toiletries can be dropped off in a box in Coopers Square.
