Legends Of The North: Meet the Beneficiaries

It's not just the LFC Foundation who benefit from this charity match; meet the rest of our beneficiaries

Whilst we can’t wait to see the action on the pitch at our Legends of the North charity match against Manchester United Legends, we’re also passionate about the important action that’s happening off the pitch every day in our city, thanks to our amazing match beneficiaries.

Every match ticket sold is chance to make a difference in our local area – a chance to create a life changing opportunity for those that need our help the most.

As well as helping our match beneficiaries, funds will go directly back into making the LFC Foundation community programmes the best they can be for our young people and families.

Vital funds that could help a young person become more active and improve their mental health thanks to our Physical, Health and Wellbeing programmes. That could help provide a person with the confidence and skills to apply for a job they love thanks to our Employability programmes. That could inspire someone to find joy in learning thanks to our Education programmes or choose to go down a more positive path thanks to our Youth Intervention programmes.

With your support, all this is possible.

What do you get in return?

We’re proud to introduce you to our match beneficiaries.

Cash for Kids

Cash for Kids is a grant-giving charity helping the children that need it most across the UK and The LFC Foundation work with them specifically to support groups in the Liverpool City Region.

Their mission is to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in our communities who are affected by poverty, illness, neglect or have additional needs. They believe that all children should be able to express their individuality, achieve their potential and live life to the full.

Working with grass-roots organisations, their aim is to make a difference to young lives, directly supporting families who often have nowhere else to go.

In 2021, Cash for Kids in partnership with Radio City and Greatest Hits Radio were able to raise £2 million, helping 49,206 local children.

We’ve worked closely with Cash for Kids, supporting their Christmas initiative as part of LFC’s Operation Christmas. They provide all year-round support and are a lifeline for people in the Liverpool City Region.
