Merseyside Tartan Army Fundraiser A Success

Kind-hearted Everton supporters helped to raise over £3,500 for charity following a Kiltwalk and bucket collection held at Goodison.

Members of the Merseyside Tartan Army were in attendance ahead of last weekend's Premier League game against Burnley, shaking buckets to raise funds for the Alder Hey Children's Charity, My Name’5 Doddie Foundation and Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal.

En-route, the walkers laid a wreath at the Hillsborough Memorial at Anfield on behalf of the group, before some continued their march into the city centre.

And the ensuing Goodison bucket appeal by volunteers, along with sponsor donations and support from Ian Byrne MP and Dave Kelly from Fans Supporting Foodbanks, helped to raise vital funds for the trio of needy charities.

Melanie Harvey - the daughter of Everton Giant Colin Harvey - who took part on the pre-match walk from Alder Hey to Goodison, said: “A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the money raised.

“It was a wonderful day all-round, capped by the spirit of everyone who took part in the walk and gave up their time to take part, and ending in a perfect result for the Toffees!

“I know the Merseyside Tartan Army were delighted at the way the whole day unfolded and I know the money raised by Blues’ fans will go a long way towards helping those in need.”
