Everton in the Community Latest Success

Take a bow you Blues, and be proud of your club and Everton in the Community.

You were massively generous when Everton asked you to donate food and household items to be distributed at the People's Picnic in the People's Club Lounge after Saturday's home match against West Ham. Some of it was sent on to local food banks. Donors included fans, club staff and local businesses.

The People's Picnic helps some of the city's most deserving families, groups, and local charities, including participants from a number of Everton in the Community programmes.

Everton in the Community's Sport Development manager Jackie Twort said: "There are so, so many people to thank for making this and every other People's Picnic such a success. The amount of support, the donations, and people offering their time to help out has been unreal. I can't thank everyone enough.

"This has become so much bigger than one simple event. Poverty won't cease to exist just because we have staged a really good event, we now have to carry on the good work and try and make the next People's Picnic even bigger and better."

The official EFC website says around 13 million people live below the poverty line in the UK. In the last year alone food banks have fed 346,992 people nationwide and of those helped, 126,889 were children. So your help and solidarity is vital.

Plans are already in place for the next People's Picnic. For more information contact Jackie Twort via email at Jackie.Twort@evertonfc.com

I could go on and on about the evils of this government. The bottom line is that there are people on our own doorsteps that need help. We are known as the 'People's Club' and rightly so. Our community work is outstanding and everyone in the city knows it. I've even heard reds talk about how great it is. WE ARE THE PEOPLE'S CLUB.

Welcome to Cameron's Britain! I don't hear of any food-banks opening in Eton and Windsor....
