The PNE Forces Team were at Deepdale on Saturday to watch North End beat Sheffield Wednesday.
Members of the programme ran by the Community and Education Trust watched the action unfold from the Sir Tom Finney Stand, having spent some time in Finney’s Café pre-match, as the Lilywhites kept up their fine home form this season.
The Preston North End Community and Education Trust’s PNE Forces programme aims to provide current and former service personnel, as well as their families, with opportunities to become involved in sports and social sessions.
Forces football sessions run weekly on a Wednesday night, with free entry at PlayFootball Preston (PR2 3TX) from 8pm until 9pm. Not only does this allow current and former members to meet fellow forces personnel, but gives them the chance to keep fit and potentially represent the Community and Education Trust on a regional and national level.
Also on a Wednesday is the Veterans Brunch Club, held in the Wings Centre on Fishergate, Preston from 10am until 12pm at £2.50 a head, providing a social setting where information about support groups for forces personnel is available, with occasional visits made to other places of interest in the local community.
In addition to these existing weekly programmes, on Wednesday 28th August, the Trust is also holding a coffee morning at Deepdale to raise money for Help4Heroes. This will take place from 11.30am until 1.30pm and those interested in joining can meet at the Minerva Centre at 11.15am.
