Dress-down Friday – REDS V BLUES

Monday 19th of December sees The Merseyside Derby and the old question still exists…
Is Merseyside Red or Blue?

Well why not help us find out and help the homeless this Christmas.
It is simple..
  • On Friday 16th of December, join us in Dress-down Friday.
  • Wear a red or blue Christmas Jumper or a red or blue top
  • Make a donation to LHFC either financially or a toy towards our Christmas appeal
  • Take a picture and tweet how many reds or blues you have in your workplace to @livhomelessfc #redorblue
  • We will keep a running total and on Monday the 19th we will declare whether Merseyside is red or blue
  • The best  dressed Liverpudlian and Evertonion will win a signed copy of the Reds V Blues DVD’s as well as the organisation that raises the most money and has the most people taking part
Dave Kirby, writer and producer of the play REDS V BLUES is supporting the idea along with the production stars Andrew Scholfield and Paul Duckworth.
He stated: “There’s always healthy banter and ridicule in the city between reds and blues over their ‘Scouse’ support. This is a great fun way to disprove the the ‘Norwegian Reds’ and ‘Welsh Blues’ theories! Whether red or blue we always come together for greater, worthy causes and I can’t think of a worthier cause than helping the homeless at Christmas time.”
To declare your interest, please retweet @livhomelessfc or email stebartonLHFC2016@gmail.com
We look forward to seeing which colour Merseyside will be on Monday 19th!

Happy International Volunteer Day

As it is International Volunteer Day, we would like to say a massive THANK YOU to all of our volunteers here at Liverpool Homeless Football Club for your continued support! We couldn’t do it without you! And a happy International Volunteer Day to all of the volunteers worldwide who are using their time and skills to help others and make a difference.

Jean Barrett Resigns From Board of Directors

This month saw one of our dedicated members Jean Barrett resign from our Board of Directors. Jean was a member of our Board of Directors for 20 months and, regardless of her resignation, will continue to work with Liverpool Homeless Football Club to achieve great success in the future. 

“Firstly I would like to say well done to all the founders of Liverpool Homeless Football Club and the great success you have achieved to date.  I’m proud to be part of such a dedicated team with shared goals focusing on improving the lives of all our members. I wish Liverpool Homeless Football Club all the luck and success it deserves – the future is bright.   

Sadly I have made the decision to step down from the Board of Directors; however, I will still be taking an active role at Liverpool Homeless Football Club.  I look forward to working as part of a great team to take the organisation to the next level.”
