The Clarets Trust is asking all Burnley fans to unite in support of Burnley FC. The aims of the Trust are to give Burnley fans a voice within the club and to promote Burnley FC within the community.

* 61 shares purchased (at £200 each) enabling representation at the club AGM

* Representative on Supporters Consultation Group

* Shirts 4 South Africa Community project

* 9 board members

* Regular meetings with club during which the Trust negotiated the removal of walk-on fee

* Anti-racism events

* Annual Beer Festival

* Youth player sponsorship of Ali Akbar and Jack Overson

In the near future the Trust will also be meeting with the club to discuss disabled facilities, share save schemes and many other projects and issues

The Trust is making progress as you can see above BUT we could do more, much more, if enough supporters get involved and promote the Trust.
