Trust Laba - Club sponsor continues to treat supporters!

9 October 2018

Principle club sponsor Laba360 once again showed their generosity last weekend, and treated a number of supporters by donating tickets to them to watch Burnley vs Huddersfield here at Turf Moor.

Laurence Ridge nominated John Cordingley to receive 2 tickets:
"John is happy to help anyone. He is very selfless and doesn’t believe in doing something for a reward. He has helped me several times in the past couple of years; he has always declined something in return. John is a positive person whom always manages to put a positive spin on negative situations. John is also a fantastic role model. This would be a great way to show how appreciative I am and it would be something he couldn’t turn down."

Lorraine Barnes nominated her daughter Lisa Barnes:
"I think my daughter deserves a pair of tickets because she would help anyone. She would love to have a season ticket, and always keeps up to date on her phone. I have also recently been in hospital and she has been amazing in every way possible, making me food, going shopping and much more".

Marilyn Reece nominated her husband Malcolm Reece: 
"Malcolm has supported the Clarets since the 1960 but we live abroad now and he has not seen them play in 5 years. We are in England for a few weeks and it would be wonderful for him to go to Turf Moor again".

Elaine Booth nominated her mum Doreen Dobson:
"My 87 year old mum has been a lifelong Burnley FC fan since she used to go on the bus with her Dad from Water, Rossendale 80 years ago. I have one of her old badges, before Bertie Bee became our mascot. Because of my mum our family all love football. Her brother was to have a trial with Burnley but he got called up for service. Though her son was always a Liverpool fan and eldest daughters family followed Bolton, she never wavered in her loyalty to BFC. She particularly showed her true colours when Owen Coyle left to join the Wanderers. She was very vicious in her attack on my niece and brother in law, saying how awful it was!. Although work commitments meant she couldn't often go to matches, she always supported them any way she could and rings me after the game to find out how we got on. Her health has suffered greatly since my Dad died 2 years ago - I got the message when we played Leeds and had just scored.

One of the highlights of her week is watching how we did on TV and she flicks through the papers and channels to follow the latest interviews and news on Burnley FC. Her next door neighbour always brings football articles for her to read .

It would be really wonderful if I could take my mum to a football match before she is too frail to make it to a live match. She would absolutley love every moment of the day, enjoy meeting everyone and talking about it for years to come!"

Joanne Green nominated Gary Greenwood:
"Gary has been a carer for over 20 years and sometimes pays for one of the elderly gentlemen he looks after to attend a game out of his own pocket. Carers don't get enough appreciation for the amazing job they do, and this would be a great thank you for his hard work."

Steven Lomas nominated Louise Young:
"She is the head teacher at a primary school about 1 mile from Turf Moor. She needs to see what all the fuss is about re: BFC. Lots of staff and children in school visit and she needs to experience it like they do".

Laba also donated a number of tickets to Burnley FC in the Community, who distributed them to Farmhouse busicuits who donate free samples of their busicuits to organisations fot the unemployed in the local area.

And of course 'Trust Laba' to continue to donate tickets over ther next few weeks to upcoming games against Chelsea, Newcastle & Liverpool...keep your eyes on burnleyfc.com
