Franklands Commercial Insurance Brokers has opened its new office in Burton, Staffordshire with a £2,000 donation to its community.
With the opening of its new office, the Derby-based company will become the only Chartered Insurance broker in Burton, according to company chairman Paul Brown.
Brown said Franklands has long planned to do more business in Burton, where Burton Albion football club chairman Ben Robinson is running his insurance venture.
“We wanted to mark our arrival in the town and after contacting Ben Robinson, we thought a contribution to the Burton Albion Community Trust would be appropriate,” Brown said.
“Learning what the trust gets involved with and understanding how far reaching into the community it is, it’s great to be involved in some small way,” he added.
Brown said Franklands account executive Mandy Belcher has worked with Albion for a long period of time.
The company’s donation to the Burton Albion Community Trust will fund the creation of a new artificial pitch at the Pirelli Stadium that can be used by the community.
Burton Albion Community Trust chairman John Jackson thanked Franklands for backing their plans to set up a much-needed community facility for Burton.
“We look forward to having a long and successful partnership with the company,” Jackson said.
