Fans Supporting Foodbanks
Fans Supporting Foodbanks, co-founded by Liverpool supporter Ian Byrne and Everton supporter Dave Kelly, has won winner of the BBC North West Sports Personality Unsung Sporting Hero Award.
What started with three fans collecting tins of food in a wheelie bin outside the pub on matchdays now supplies 25 per cent of all donations to North Liverpool Foodbanks and has become a grassroots organisation that stretches from Glasgow to London to Dublin.
But they do more than just collect food. They educate people on the root causes of poverty and work to promote unity, equality and justice in our communities. It’s not about charity but solidarity, and the perfect example of football fan activism.
