Louis Moult Raises Awareness of Homelessness As Part Of EFL Day Of Action

20 March 2019

All 72 EFL clubs came together to highlight the work undertaken to tackle some of society's biggest issues for the EFL's Day of Action 2019.

The day of action, which took place on Tuesday 19th March was a chance for each club to host events designed to showcase the very best of their work to tackle a diverse range of social issues, from homelessness and mental health, to community cohesion and the battle against plastic pollution. 

Spearheading the day of action across large parts of mainstream media was Preston North End's day of events as we joined forces with our friends at the Foxton Centre to raise awareness of homelessness and drug and alcohol addiction. 

Fronting the campaign was Preston North End's Louis Moult who was able to touch on the issues of homelessness and alcohol addiction with family members going through the same ordeal.

Louis took part in a pre-recorded feature with BBC Breakfast to put the spotlight on the issues before returning to the Foxton Centre on the day of action to meet more of the individuals who have been impacted by their work.
