Armed Forces Group Preston, who support local veterans and their families, succeded in a recent bid to local councillors in order to purchase a gazebo. They lost theirs in a freak gust of wind on Avenham Park last August and desperately needed another, more robust version to be able to carry out important fundraising at summer events. This is their only way to bring in income and without the gazebo they would struggle as their event activities require dry, shaded conditions.
The following councillors have all generously approved a portion of the funding and the gazebo order has been placed, further securing the future of the charity. Out of the 8 councillors approached, 7 clearly understood the wider community benefits of supporting our local veterans. …..
Carl Crompton, keith Sedgewick, Bill Winlow, Yousuf Matala, Geoff Driver, David Borrow and Jennifer Mein.
