Preston Wings Centre

Preston has a newly opened resource aimed at the Armed Forces Community. The Royal Air Forces Association Wings Centre on Fishergate offers a group setting to get involved with activities, events and to social with likeminded people. Our first groups are up and running – paper-based crafting on Tuesday mornings from 10 till 12, Tea and Toast on Thursday mornings 10 till 12 and a knitting circle on Friday mornings 10 till 12. As a charity we take a small donation to participate in activities and groups, generally £1, but you are free to visit us to see what other things are going on and find out more about Armed Forces activities in the Preston area.
If you have ideas for other activities, skills to share with others, or would like to volunteer with us, please pop into the Wings Centre at 82-83 Fishergate, Preston, or contact

Toby Carvery Marches into Charity Partnership with The Royal British Legion

Toby Carvery is delighted to announce its charity partnership with The Royal British Legion, which it will be supporting with fundraising initiatives over the next two years.

Toby Carvery’s across the UK will be taking part in the fundraising initiative, adding a special charity pudding to their menus with 25p from each pudding sale being donated to The Legion. The jam and coconut sponge was voted for by Toby Carvery’s fans on Facebook to be the official charity pudding and received over 500 entries.  

Toby Carvery aims to raise £100,000 for The Royal British Legion by the end of 2018, and is encouraging everyone to tuck into a pudding and get involved in local fundraising activities to help support this great cause.

Martin Gosling, Brand Operations Director for Toby Carvery comments: “We couldn’t be happier to support The Royal British Legion and have this great cause as our brand charity partnership throughout the year. The Legion’s cause is close to both employees and guests of Toby Carvery up and down the country, and we can’t wait to start fundraising to support both past and current members of the Armed Forces as well as their families.”

The money raised will be used to support active, and veteran members of the Armed Forces and their families, remembering those fallen in the line of duty and ensuring their memory lives on, and that those left behind are fully supported within their community.

Claire Rowcliffe, Director of Fundraising at The Royal British Legion said, "We’re incredibly pleased that Toby Carvery has chosen to support The Royal British Legion. We look forward to working together in a unique partnership, raising much-needed funds that will help us to continue our work providing vital support to the Armed Forces community.”

As well as fundraising initiatives, Toby Carvery is giving back to Armed Forces and their families by partnering with the Defences Discount Card which gives Armed Forces members, spouses and veterans 10% off their food bill.  As the official discount service for the Armed Forces, the Defence Community and Veterans, the card is also available to members of the community not previously supported, including spouses and partners of serving personnel.

Over 100,000 cards are currently in circulation across the UK since the launch, and this number is continuing to grow on a monthly basis.
