Fundraising Evertonian Speedo Mick was named the Everton's Fan of the Year on Sunday.
Speedo Mick, real name Michael Cullen, has raised close to £60,000 for the Woodlands Hospice.
Kicking off his fundraising campaign with a cross-channel swim, Mick became famous when he appeared at grounds up and down the country wearing just his Blue swimsuit.
He then completed a Goodison to Wembley walk ahead of the Blues’ FA Cup semi-final last month - raising yet more money each step of the way.
And so he was a hugely popular nominee when the Everton Fans’ Forum asked supporters to nominate their Fan of the Year recently.
Mick was welcomed on to the pitch at half-time during the final game of the season to a huge ovation from the Goodison faithful.
He said: “Without the fans it wouldn’t be happening. They have been fantastic and it’s really emotional for me. It’s not a case of me getting my Speedos on, it’s a case of the fans getting their hands in their pockets all season.”
Mick was handed a special canvas by Ian Snodin and Fans’ Forum chairman Nick Mernock and also received a 2016/17 Season Ticket.
