Says George Shrimpton from Winning Moves UK: “The game will feature the great and the good of Preston. It’s in effect a love letter to the city.”

Preston & South Ribble Street Pastors is featured on the Monopoly Preston Edition game, as it was announced that they were the first of the charities, voted onto the board via a public poll, to be announced.

There will be eight other Preston based charities featuring on the game in total which will be announced at a later date.

Each charity will get to feature either on their own square, or one of the Community Chest or Chance cards that players are directed to if they land on a Community Chest or Chance space.

35 Preston landmarks, organisations and favourites will star in the game on their very own Monopoly Preston prime real estate or a card.

The new board will be available at all good toy and book stores in Preston from 22nd October, including Waterstones, The Works, Ryman and very widely online, including on Amazon.
