THE Pirelli Stadium held its incredibly popular annual Cheltenham Festival raceday today – with an incredible £1,609 raised for Burton Albion Community Trust.

More than 200 racing fans filled out the Albion Suite at the Pirelli this afternoon to enjoy the final day of the world famous Cheltenham Festival on our big screen.

A licensed bookmaker was on site to handle all bets from the punters – with all profits donated to the Community Trust and a cheque received by Partnerships and Events Manager Steff White.

Attendees were also able to enjoy an exquisite five-course meal with full table service at this afternoon’s event – which was officially sponsored by Lifestyle Bar.

Based locally in Guild Street, Lifestyle is the town’s largest nightclub that hosts numerous themed events throughout the year such as Northern Soul, 80s, 90s and much, much more.

The Lifestyle brand also incorporates award winning unisex salon Lifestyle Hair, located on Station Street.

Steff White said: “Thank you so much to everyone who came down today and helped to raise such an amazing total for Burton Albion Community Trust.

“These unrestricted funds will go into various Community Trust projects as we look to Inspire, Engage and Educate our community.”

Host and TV legend Gary Newbon said: “It’s been a fantastic day, we must thank all the staff at Burton Albion and the chefs.

“Thanks to Darren and Jeff, today’s bookmakers, who have run the operation today without taking a penny’s profit, with £1,609 going to Burton Albion Community Trust.

“We hope to see everyone back here for BAFC Events’ Ascot Ladies Day in June!”

Our incredibly popular Royal Ascot Ladies Day returning to the Pirelli Stadium on Thursday, June 22 and bookings are now being taken.
