Bertie Bee invites new friend into his ‘clique’!

An unlikely friendship was formed at the weekend as Roaming Roosters teamed up with Burnley Football Club, to celebrate the ‘Best of Burnley’.

The newly unveiled Roaming Rooster mascot took to Harry Potts Way and the Turf Moor pitch prior to the match, alongside the famous Bertie Bee, to encourage fans and promote the Roosters brand.

Roaming Roosters supplied meat for corporate hospitality boxes for the Burnley v Leicester match, during which some 900 people tucked into their grass fed strip loin and chuck steak.

“The event at Burnley Football Club was a huge success. The budding friendship between Bertie Bee and our Rooster was a great attraction, especially for children who wanted their photo taken with both mascots and even won us some airtime on Sky Sports,” said Paul White, business development manager at Roaming Roosters.

“Supplying the food for the hospitality area was fantastic, and we are currently in discussions as to how this might continue in the future,” Paul continued.

Dean Cockett, director of Nelson energy management and cost reduction company, Businesswise Solutions, and avid claret and blue fan said: “The food for corporate hospitality guests was absolutely delicious.

“I’ve eaten at Roaming Roosters before, so it was no surprise when the meal was received with great accreditation. The excellent food almost made up for the disappointing result against Leicester!”

The Best of Burnley Festival was a celebration of the best food, drink and entertainment that the area has to offer. Roaming Roosters are a sustainable food business based in Higham, with a farm shop, bistro and coffee shop on site. The company offered 20% discount for their online shop to Burnley Football Club supporters on the day, which has already proved a huge hit with match day fans.
