Preston North End Commit To Supporting Armed Forces

Preston North End will be recommitting their support to the armed forces, by signing the Armed Forces Covenant before Blackburn clash.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge to support those that have served in the military.

The covenant focusses on helping members of the armed forces community have the same access to government and commercial services and products as any other citizen.

Officials from the club will sign the document along with officers from the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment during an official presentation

A spokesman for Preston North End said, “It focuses on providing members of the Forces community with the same access to public services as any other citizen, such as education and healthcare.

“As well as signing the covenant, PNE Community and Education Trust will be marking its relationship with armed forces groups with a number of other themed activities on the day of Blackburn’s visit to Deepdale.

“Members of the Duke of Lancaster regiment, medical regiment and participants from the Trust’s PNE Forces programme will form a guard of honour to welcome both teams onto the pitch. The match ball will then be presented to the matchday referee by a member of the Armed Forces from the Duke of Lancaster Regiment.

“As part of its commitment to the covenant, the club will be offering discounted match tickets for military personnel wishing to attend the game.”
