Day 10 of our Compassionate Communities blogs turns the spotlight on six former Liverpool and Everton footballers who pledged their support to Queenscourt Hospice and encouraged others to do the same at a time it is needed the most.
Ronnie Whelan, Gary Gillespie, Alan Kennedy, Jim Beglin, who played for Liverpool Football Club in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, and Ian Snodin and Graeme Sharp, former Everton Football Club stars from the same period, all recorded short videos in which they made a plea for people to financially support Queenscourt at this testing time.
They encouraged people to either make a regular or one-off donation to Queenscourt or to sign up to the hospice’s Lottery, which carries a first prize of £1,500 along with 21 other cash prizes, each and every week.
Ronnie Whelan said as part of his message: “Once you have looked after yourself and looked after your loved ones, please can you spare a thought for Queenscourt Hospice, your local hospice? They would be very grateful for any support you can give in the form or a regular or one-off donation.”
This is a sentiment echoed by all six of the football stars. If you are able to support Queenscourt, please go to www.queenscourt.org.uk to find out how to make donations or join our Lottery.
