Everton in the Community has reached the £250,000 milestone in its aim to raise £1million to celebrate 25 years of the Blues’ official charity.
First Milestone Reached
Reaching the quarter-way mark only three months into the campaign means the charity is well on its way to achieving its goal by the end of the Silver Jubilee year.
The charity is asking 40,000 fans, the capacity of Goodison Park, to each raise £25 to reach its target of £1million. This means 10,000 fans have already got behind the campaign and now Everton in the Community is urging the remaining 30,000 at Goodison to get stuck into the campaign.
To help supporters get involved, Everton in the Community has devised 25 easy ways to raise £25, which range from a sponsored walk to abseiling down Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral to attending one of the charity’s special events. For more information click here.
The Blues’ official charity was established on 1 February, 1988, and over the last 25 years has grown to be one of the most well-respected and pioneering sporting charities in the UK. It has been at the forefront of its game, challenging health and social issues, including anti-social behaviour, disability, mental health and education.
This landmark birthday will be celebrated at the Blues’ home fixture against Aston Villa on Saturday 2 February, which has been dedicated to the charity. To see the celebrations, purchase your tickets here.
