AN ambitious Blackburn motor dealership has been named Burnley FC in the Community's new vehicle supplier.

Hippo has part-funded four Nissan Jukes for the charity and will sponsor half-time game for juniors at Turf Moor.

Ryan Bradley, business Development executive for the Burnley trust: "Securing such a commitment from a fast expanding, local brand is fantastic and we can’t thank Hippo enough for its support."

Tom Preston, Hippo's managing director, added: "I grew up and live in Pendle and a lot of our staff come from Pendle and Burnley too. Many of those being big Burnley fans.

“We're really glad to be able to support an incredible charity which benefits thousands."
