Yesterday, we reported about Everton in the Community (EITC) organising their Easter Fun Day before the Sunderland home game on Easter Monday, they now have some weight behind them to support the day and their campaign!
Club legend Duncan Ferguson and local boxing star Tony Bellew will be launching EITC's new Vodafone JustTextGiving service at half-time.
Big Dunc and True Blue Tony Bellew will be taking to the pitch to encourage us to send a text and help the Club's official charity raise much-needed funds via a text code unique to Everton.
The new service means it is easier than ever to help EITC. All supporters need to do is text EITC06 followed by a space, pound sign and the amount to 70070. For example, 'EITC06 £2'.
The text is free to send and 100 per cent of the money donated goes to the Blues' official charity. The amount you decide to donate will be deducted from your phone credit or added to your next bill.
Everton in the Community and Vodafone JustTextGiving is aiming to set a record for the most amount of money ever raised by football fans during a Premier League fixture using text donation and are urging fans to get involved.
The charity relies heavily on donations to be able to deliver vital programmes to improve the lives of vulnerable and underprivileged people across Merseyside. None of this fantastic and life-changing work would be possible without the kindness shown by the Club's loyal supporters.
Go on, text now.
