The PNECET Helping Hampers campaign which has seen the club and the Trust unite to support the local community has now been in operation for exactly a month!
More than 500 hampers have now been delivered in that time, with items of food, drink and toiletries along with a range of reading materials being sent to the most vulnerable of those accessing the Trust's programmes, as well as the club's older and disabled season ticket holders and vulnerable members of the community upon request.

The campaign was launched late in April with the support of the first team squad and staff, providing thousands of pounds of funding which was later further aided with additional grants from community organisations such as the Lancashire COVID-19 Community Support Fund and the National Emergencies Trust.
However, we are now once again looking for donations from the general public to allow us to continue supporting the local community with the provision of our Helping Hampers and you can donate to the cause by clicking here.
Last week's deliveries saw Peter Ridsdale joining the team to hand out hampers to Preston North End season ticket holders with visits to care homes also being made as part of Dementia Action Week.
Look back through photos from each week of deliveries so far via the links below.
You can continue to nominate a vulnerable member of the community by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the person's details.
