Clubs Unite For EFL Day Of Action

19 March 2018

All 72 EFL Clubs to demonstrate the power of football in changing young people’s lives

 All 72 EFL Clubs will come together on the same day for the EFL’s Day of Action to demonstrate the positive impact football can have in changing young people’s lives. 

On Tuesday 20 March, EFL Clubs across all three divisions will showcase the innovative and ground breaking work they do for young people in tackling some of the biggest issues in society across education, health, community inclusion and participation.

Preston North End Community and Education Trust are delighted to be hosting a Healthy Eating Workshop as part of it's Premier League Primary Stars Healthy Eating and Lifestyle Programme in mark of the national day of action.

Schools who take part in the programme will be invited to take part in a variety of workshops which will focus on educating primary school children into living a healthy and active lifestyle, helping children identify healthy and unhealthy foods, make healthy swaps, learn about their body and what it needs to stay healthy, hygienic and active. 

EFL Chairman, Ian Lenagan said: “Football continues to support its communities seven days a week, 365 days a year through our unique network of club community trusts.

“Bringing all 72 together on one day for the EFL Day of Action highlights the special role the EFL has in society and our collective ability to make a positive and lasting impact to the lives of millions of people.

“It is fantastic to see so many managers and players across England and Wales coming out in support of the excellent work being undertaken by their own Club right in the heart of their own community.

“There are few sporting organisations that can deliver the scale of innovative and ground breaking activity we do via our network of Clubs across so many important areas, including inclusion, charitable causes, community engagement, education or health.”
