Liverpool FC and Everton FC Superlambanana to fundraise for Rhys Jones Memorial Fund


A UNIQUE superlambanana has been designed to raise money for the Rhys Jones Memorial Fund.

Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Steve Rotheram, commissioned an artist to paint a superlambanana with both Liverpool and Everton FC logos to raise money for the charity.

The lambie’s combined football motif is now being completed and it will either be sold to the highest bidder or raffled across the city in the summer.

The Lord Mayor announced the fundraising plan before more than 300 guests who assembled for his gala dinner at St George’s Hall on Saturday night.

He said the lamb with its split design would raise much needed funds towards building a new community centre in Croxteth in the schoolboy’s memory.

Cllr Rotheram, said: “I wanted to do something that was a bit different to raise money for the Rhys Jones Memorial Fund and came up with the idea of using the superlambanana.

“We bought one of the last ever superlambananas, a plain one that had been created for last year’s trail but was never painted and never used.

“I really hope it raises a lot of money. I think the sky’s the limit, really, because this is something that everyone is going to want to own.”

The Rhys Jones Memorial Fund was set up after the 11-year-old was shot dead on his way home from football practice on August 22, 2007. It has the full backing of his mum and dad Melanie and Stephen.

They hope the fund will raise enough money to build a new centre, which will provide a safe place for children and young people to meet and will also include modern sports facilities, such as an all-weather football pitch.

The ECHO’s charity Liverpool Unites was also launched in the wake of Rhys' murder and raised £100,000 for his memorial fund through a concert at the ECHO Arena and a 5km fun run. Liverpool Unites continues to support the fund alongside its work for young people.

I reckön a raffle would be good. What would you do with it if you won though? Id have to re-raffle it, i think. Useless item once the novelty wore off!
