Many Liverpool fans will have heard the name Owen McVeigh, the 11 year-old Liverpool fan who tragically lost his life to Leukaemia in 2015, and even more will be familiar with the flag made in his honour and the T-shirts that have been seen the world over. But some may not know much about the Owen McVeigh Foundation, which was set up in his memory.

In to talk to Andy Heaton about the foundation are his dad Mark and Adam Kearns who was instrumental in helping the McVeigh family set it up and is a member of the foundation committee.

Mark and Adam speak about the aims of the foundation, how it was set up and some of the great things that have been done in Owen’s memory.

You can support the foundation in any number of ways, their website can be reached at or you can purchase the now famous T-shirt at “Hat Scarf or a Badge” on the following link:
