Local veterans at penalty shoot-out at City Ground - StadiaCare

Local veterans at penalty shoot-out at City Ground

7th May 2019

OfficeCare has teamed up with Nottingham Forest Community Trust, the Official Charity of Nottingham Forest Football Club, to give local veterans the opportunity of a lifetime – taking a penalty on the hallowed turf at the famous City Ground.

As part of the ‘Forest Forces’ programme, which started earlier this year, the club’s Community Trust has been supporting its veterans in leading healthier and more connected lives.

OfficeCare was delighted to support the initiative, as Martin Booth, Managing Director, explained: “These men and women gave huge sacrifices for our nation and this was an opportunity for us to say ‘thank you’ by helping to give them a memorable day.”

Everyone had a fantastic, fun-filled day pitchside at the City Ground, which included taking penalties against Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Luke Steele. This was followed by some excellent hospitality in the Robin Hood Suite.

Leaving the Armed Forces can present some unique challenges, which is why OfficeCare is delighted to support the veterans to get into employment. Job roles, including part-time work in unique venues like the City Ground, means for many they will enjoy getting paid for something they actually love doing!

Here at OfficeCare we offer more than just a job. It’s a chance to further their skills through a range of training schemes including cleaning, maintenance and facility management
