Another Community Win!

Everton in the Community won another prize at Monday evening's Northern Sports awards.

The official charity was named best grassroots scheme at the ceremony, held at Lancashire CC's Old Trafford ground.

The Community offer a wide range of schemes aimed at improving the lives of vast swathes of people across Merseyside and North Wales.

This includes projects covering social inclusion, men's health, disability sport and much, much more.

When announcing Everton as the winners, host and snooker legend Willie Thorne said: "This multi-award winning scheme has not only helped the local community through the quality of sporting provision it offers to people of all ages and social circumstances, its success is such that its approach has been adopted and replicated both nationally and internationally.

"The judges were particularly impressed by the obvious passion and dedication of not only the scheme's staff but the 150 plus volunteers, who strive to serve the needs of their community through sport."

Everton in the Community chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale said: "We are delighted to win the award. It is testament to the hard work put in by Community staff and our loyal band of volunteers and it inspires us to continue, and build upon, the successes we have had so far."
