Lyndsay Fahey, Chief Executive of Rainbow Hub, said: “This is a fantastic event that has grown from the beginning.
“Sadly, we had to go virtual last year due to the pandemic, but it was still a success, and we expect a great turnout next month.
“We would like to thank everyone for supporting the event, especially JMW Solicitors and Preston North End Football Club, for allowing us to use their facilities.
“We are also grateful to everyone who is giving up their time to help, especially the instructors, Ultrasec, for attending the event to provide first aid, and Gareth Edwards of Gareth Edwards Photography.”
