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 Chelsea here at Turf Moor.
Laba360 generously donated a hospitality box to 10 veterans who made up part of the display on the pitch for the moments silence and rendition of the last post. To read more about the acvities that happened on the Chelsea game, please click HERE.
Not only were the hospitality tickets donanted, but a further 10 veterans who engage with the veterans programme ran by Burnley FC in the Community were given tickets to enjoy the game from the stands.
Alongside this generous offering, Laba360 continued to run the competition where supporters can nominate a deserving friend, family memeber or colleague to win two tickets to the game. Here are some of the winning nominations...
Alistair Dryer nominated Benjamin Dryer to receive 2 tickets:
"We are massive Burnley fans, hailing from Burnley, but now live in London and being able to see Burnley v Chelsea at Turf Moor for such big games is very difficult, so it would be fab if we could win two tickets so that father and son could watch their favourite team, hopefully beat Chelsea."
Debra Walsh nominated son-in-law Benjamin Brearley:
"My son in law is a manager of a company, he works Monday to Saturday. He works so hard but can never go to a game due to being at work. This is why I want him to be able to go to this game due to it being on a Sunday. We tried getting him tickets but unfortunately they had sold out. His little boy also supports Burnley but also likes Chelsea. So it would be a great opportunity for the both of them to enjoy themselves and be re paid for all the hard work he does. Thanks for your time."
John Fielding nominated son Joseph Fielding:
"I would like to nominate my 8 year old son Joseph Fielding because he rarely gets the opportunity to see Burnley play as I serve in the British Army and spend an awful lot of time away from home. Coupled with that, he has already lived in 4 different places throughout his life, unfortunately none of which being in Burnley (due to military postings) therefore it makes it really hard to get to games. He is a massive Burnley fan but hasn't been to a game this season therefore I would love to take him because it is Half Term and I will be home on leave."
Nick Subasic nominated David Schofield:
"Dave's wife Jeanette has been suffering from cancer for a number of years and he has always been there for her. He is a Burnley fan and uses our ticket if any of us can't go."
Vicki Devonport nominated her sister Kath Simmons:
"Kath has just retired from over 40 years of nursing locally - not been able to afford a season ticket but a Claret through and through .. always texts me at the match on the 14th minute 'C'mon Burnley.. give us a goal '."
And of course 'Trust Laba' continue to donate tickets over the next few weeks to upcoming games against Newcastle, Liverpool & Brighton...keep your eyes on burnleyfc.com
