Purps' Alder Hey Hospital Fundraiser
Thu 12th October 2017 | City of Liverpool | By Gary Johansen
City of Liverpool held their latest fundraising bucket collection, this time on behalf of Alder Hey Children's Kidney Fund, at the game against Runcorn Town on Tuesday night.
Purple Partisan John Joynt (aka Huyton Fattie) organised this collection along with his two sons Jack and Tom, with Tom being the match mascot for the night.
John said: "The fans of both teams gave very generously and they were extremely supportive of the cause. We raised an amazing total of £180.80 on the night, and both Purple 'Partisan Kidz' were brilliant in drumming up support for the fundraiser.
"City of Liverpool is such a community orientated club, and I would like to thank everyone at COLFC who made tonight's fundraiser possible".
The Alder Hey Children's Kidney Fund provides support for children and their families in times of hardship during stressful hospital stays as well as numerous other issues that arise with a child who has kidney issues.
The Fund is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2018 with a gala Dinner at Liverpool Football Club.
Gary Johansen, City of Liverpool Media Director added: "John, Jack and Tom did a fantastic job on the night, and we would like to thank them for their hard work and effort in organising this fundraising event, which is for such a worthy cause. Thanks too once again to the supporters of both teams who donated on the night"
