Everton in the Community scooped another accolade at the 2013 Juice FM Inspiration Awards last night.
The Blues’ official charity won the Juice FM Community Award, in association with Merseyrail, in recognition of the excellent provision it has delivered across the region for the last 25 years.
The award is yet more celebration for Everton in the Community, which this year marks its silver jubilee.
Award judges commended Everton in the Community for its work over the past 25 years, the difference it has made to so many lives across Merseyside, and felt it fitting that the Blues’ official charity should win the award as part of its anniversary celebrations.
On hand to accept the award last night at the Isla Gladstone Conservatory in Stanley Park from Juice FM Breakfast presenters, Adam Weighell and Leanne Campbell, were Everton in the Community’s Ed Parker and Business Development Manager, Chris Clarke.
Chris said: “We are very honoured to receive this award in what is such a special year for the charity. We hope to continue to help as many local people as possible for another 25 years – and beyond.”
Everton in the Community was established on 1 February 1988 in response to the many social and economic challenges facing Merseyside, with the aim of engaging local people in positive and inspiring community-based activities.
It is now without doubt one of the most diverse and dynamic community schemes in the world delivering a range of projects focusing on issues such as education, employment, youth engagement, health, sport, disability, social inclusion, cultural diversity and volunteering.
