Everton fans support NSPCC
EVERTON fans were asked to dig deep on Saturday as the club celebrated raising more than £25,000 for the NSPCC.
The players donned green NSPCC T-shirts as they warmed up for their Premier League clash against Manchester City.
Fundraisers collected donations at the stadium and both managers wore the charity’s green full- stop badge during post- match interviews.
During half-time NSPCC Assistant Director for Merseyside Alex Leith thanked fans for their generosity.
The money will go towards the NSPCC’s Safe Place appeal.
Supporters hope to raise £17m to cover 10 years’ running costs at the Hargreaves Centre, in Great Homer Street, Everton, where up to 400 children and their families receive help and support each week.
Everton boss David Moyes said: “I am fully aware of the relationship between Everton and the NSPCC and I am sure that our supporters gave generously on Saturday.
“It’s a fantastic cause and the centre in the city is something for everyone to be very proud of.”THE ECHO
