Liverpool Homeless FC play
Bartercard 11 in charity match at Prenton Park
BARTERCARD UK has been raising
awareness of Liverpool's homeless by taking part in a charity football match at
Tranmere Rovers' Prenton Park.
As sponsors of the National League side Tranmere Rovers, Bartercard UK organised
to play Liverpool Homeless FC at the Stadium, in support of the charity's efforts
to help those living on the streets of Merseyside.
Chris Kirby, Brokerage Director at Bartercard York, said:- "When we chose
to sponsor Tranmere Rovers, not only did we want to help the team and its fans,
but also the wider community. This is just 1 way we love to get involved and I'd
like to say a big thank you to everyone involved."
The charity match was held in association with the Shankly Family Foundation.
The foundation, which supports young people and grass roots football in the name
of the great Liverpool Manager, Bill Shankly, provided accommodation and
refreshments for the players at the Shankly Hotel.
Meanwhile, Wonderland Memorabilia, another client of Bartercard UK, donated
signed Liverpool FC photo frames for the match, which the Bartercard team
presented to Liverpool Homeless FC and the Shankly Family Foundation at
full time. The match ended in a 4 to nil victory, to Bartercard.
Globally, Bartercard operates in 8 countries, through 75 offices with 600 staff.
Together, Bartercard offers access to a wide selection of businesses and a huge
selection of products and services. For more information, visit:-
