'An Hour For Others' benefits from Purples' bucket collection
Tue 18th April 2017 | City of Liverpool | By Gary Johansen
City of Liverpool held a successful fundraising bucket collection for an organisation called "An Hour For Others" at their home game against Cheadle Town on Easter Monday.
The organisation was founded by Kevin Morland in 2014 in order to help to make a difference to people's lives in Liverpool, who for various reasons are struggling or in difficulty, whether they be pensioners, families with young children who may be struggling financially, and those living in poverty and poor conditions - basically, to help and assist the most needy.
The organisation has a growing database of local businesses and organisations, and those offering up their time and who are willing to contribute to a better future for others who are less fortunate.
The bucket collection at the Cheadle game raised a fantastic £400 which will go a long way to help Kevin and all those at 'An Hour For Others' as they seek to make a difference in the lives of the community and help create a better environment for us all to live in.
Kevin said of the event: "We want to thank City of Liverpool and their supporters so much for allowing us to do this fundraising collection today. It was heartwarming to be able to raise so much money for the important work that we do, but it was not unexpected to see the Liverpool people support our organisation. People here realise that community and solidarity is everything, and I'm so proud of my home City".
City of Liverpool Executive Director Gary Johansen added: "Once again, our fans have dug deep and supported another local community venture. This epitomises everything we are about at this club, and it was a pleasure to be able to assist Kevin, the volunteers and all the great work that is done by 'An Hour For Others'.
