Nottingham Forest Community Trust have teamed up with OfficeCare (The Official Charity of Nottingham Forest Football Club) to give local Veterans the opportunity of a lifetime by taking a penalty on the hallowed turf at the world famous City Ground.
As part of our Forest Forces programme which started in January, we have been supporting our Veterans to lead more healthy and connected lives. Providing events and activities such as coffee & quiz mornings, ground tours, guest speaking events including some Nottingham Forest legends and much more! After hearing about our programme OfficeCare decided that they’d like to work with and support the initiative explaining that, “These men and women gave huge sacrifices for our Nation and its our chance to say thank you and give them a day they wont forget.” Not only will they get to step out onto the pitch but OfficeCare have also helped us to provide the Veterans with Nottingham Forest Hospitality which will include free lunch and drinks!
