Pirelli celebrated 90 years of manufacturing at its UK headquarters in Burton upon Trent with its biggest Family Day celebration yet, held jointly with Burton Albion Football Club. The Family Day took place at the Pirelli Stadium, which is located a few hundred metres down the road from Pirelli’s UK headquarters in Burton. Pirelli UK Chairman and CEO, Dominic Sandivasci, along with Burton Albion FC Chairman, Ben Robinson, and club captain, Jake Buxton, opened the event.
Pirelli will support local football club Burton Albion FC’s Community Trust Ghana project for the second consecutive year. The tyre manufacturer, a long-term sponsorship partner of Burton Albion, is donating £500 to apprentice Joe Green’s target of £2,500 to support his travel costs to participate in the project. The Burton Albion Community Trust Ghana project involves young people travelling to Ghana to help with various community projects, such as building houses in some of the most deprived areas in the world as well as volunteering in schools. Green will visit Ghana in May for 11 days.
