Two Great Events - Two Great Causes


Get down to Goodison this Friday, 5th of April, and support our youth team in their quest to capture the FA Youth Cup. We're playing Norwich in the quarter final. Details of special tickets can be seen on the leaflet on the left, £20 for a hospitality style package and your chance to meet some great Everton heroes. The proceeds from this hospitality event will be split equaly between Everton in the Community and The Everton Former Players Foundation, two great charities close to the hearts of all Evertonians.

Supporters Club Cycle Challenge April 2013 “We’re Everton Aren’t We?”

Everton Football Club is embarking on a new charity challenge for the 2012/13 season.

This challenge will see a group of people cycle from the Stadium of Light to Goodison Park; the route is 202 miles and will take the team four days to complete.

We are calling this challenge “We’re Everton Aren’t We??”, as this team of people have dedicated their lives to Everton Football Club for as long as each of them can remember, they live and breathe the Club watching the team home and away, these are the people of Everton FC.

The aim is to raise a staggering £50,000; funds being split equally and immediately reinvested into the vital work of Everton in the Community and the Everton Former Players Foundation, sister charities of Everton. For the past 25 years, Everton in the Community have delivered a range of award-winning programmes promoting health, education, social inclusion and equality of opportunity across Merseyside using the power of sport.
During the last year alone, they have provided on-going developmental opportunities to over 30,000 participants and with support from their loyal fan base they are aiming to raise an incredible £1m in this jubilee year.

The monies raised by the Foundation go towards the financial and medical assistance of former Everton players who did not have the luxury of today's inflated wages. Many Players of the past that gave us so much pleasure and that we idolised still work today despite being due well-earned retirement.

Some players bear the Physical Scars of giving their all in the Royal Blue Jersey, and the Foundation contributes where it can towards medical assistance that improves the lives of these Heroes of days gone by. As well as a tailored fundraising programme which will help the team reach their ambitious target, the team will receive an exclusive fitness and training plan which will include diet and nutrition advice from first team coaches, they will also have the opportunity to attend a personalised training session will take place at the state of the art training complex, Finch Farm, this will help them get prepared for the big challenge.

The team will also have a ‘Heroes’ Return’ at Goodison Park on 27th April when Everton take on Fulham.
