Following a generous donation, Preston North End are delighted to offer two disabled fans and their carers free season tickets for the upcoming 2017/18 season.
The club are offering the opportunity for fans to be nominated in order to receive the two season tickets. The tickets will be for a disabled fan and their carer, meaning there will be two pairs of tickets available.
The season tickets will be available to fans that do not currently own a season ticket for the 2017/18 season and the fans nominated would have to meet the usual terms and conditions to be eligible for a disabled supporter's ticket.
If there is someone you feel deserves to win one of these pairs of tickets, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the reasons why. The deadline for nominations will be Thursday 20th July 2017.
The generosity is courtesy of PNE fan Tony Stamp in the memory of his late brother David, Mr Stamp spoke to PNE.Com about his donation.
“The purpose of my donation is that I had a brother, David, who had Downs Syndrome, however he was mad keen on football. Every Saturday he would be glued to the TV for hours before final score was aired to get the results. Like me he was born in Penwortham and, like our father, we became avid supporters of North End.
“When David passed away he left me and my siblings a small amount of money for each of us. I have been wondering what to do with my share that would be worthwhile for some time.
“It was only when it was brought to my attention that clubs had to make a commitment to allocate more low cost seating at matches, to disabled people and their carers that I had the eureka moment.
“Being a life-long North End supporter with little chance of watching them on a regular basis, as I now live in France, the thought of two disabled people benefiting would be a special way of using this legacy.”
The club would like to thank Mr Stamp for his generosity and feel that his attitude optimises what it means to be a Lilywhite.
