Preston North End Community and Education Trust are holding the annual NCS [National Citizen Service] matchday on Saturday for the visit of Swansea City to Deepdale.
The Trust delivers the government-backed National Citizen Service programme for young people aged 15 to 17-years-old who are currently in Year 11 and Year 12, giving them the chance to engage in adventurous activities, develop life skills, organise charity events, make life-long friends and much more.
We will be using this year’s NCS matchday to raise awareness of Congenital Heart disease, ahead of Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week, which is taking place from Friday 7th February until Friday 14th February.
There will be an information stall regarding NCS and Congenital Heart Disease available for supporters to visit on the day of the game, located in the Sir Tom Finney South Executive Entrance, with bucket collections in aid of Heartbeat also taking place in the stadium concourses.
Supporters can also watch out for CPR demonstrations being made at the information stall ahead of the game, while the Preston North End players will prepare for the game wearing NCS tee shirts.
We will be inviting a number of our NCS graduates and volunteers from Heartbeat to Deepdale to watch the game after they have played their part in all of the themed activities in the lead-up to kick-off as well!
