The Anglesey Arms on the Green in Burton-upon-Trent has received the runner up title at the Heart of the Community awards this year, a national competition held within Stonegate Pub Company.

“It’s an honour to receive award as it acknowledges our place in the community, for which we take great pride in.” said Julya Bentley, general manager of the Anglesey Arms, which is owned and operated by the award-winning Stonegate Pub Company. “The team and I are very excited to have won the award but the best part about it is that we get the chance to support a local charity. We have been granted £500 to donate to a cause which lies close to our hearts.

“One of our regular customers suffers from Multiple Sclerosis (MS) so it seemed only natural that MS be our choice. We also keep a collection box for MS charities on the bar and regularly encourage customers to drop in loose change. It’s especially great to be able to help out around Christmas time – in the spirit of the season!”
