James Milner visits LFC Foundation Camp

Liverpool vice-captain James Milner visited a LFC Foundation half-term multi-sport camp in Anfield this week.

The midfielder popped in to Anfield Sports and Community Centre to meet with the young participants and see first-hand how they are benefiting from the sessions, which were funded by a generous donation from James’ own charity.
 
After chatting to the youngsters and answering their questions, Milner also tried his hand at the numerous activities on offer – including dodgeball, cricket, hockey and rugby.
 
The James Milner Foundation (JMF) provided the club’s charity - the LFC Foundation - with £16,000 last year, and the money was used to fund a series of three-day multi-sports and activity camps during school half-term breaks.
 
The camps began in October 2016 and aim to encourage children aged six-15 years to participate in healthy recreation, with over 540 participants benefitting from the sessions to date.   
 
Like the LFC Foundation, JMF promotes healthy activities among young people across the UK by focusing on the development, improvement and provision of sporting opportunities - in particular football, rugby and cricket.
