One of the lasting images from this year's Hillsborough anniversary service was the sea of football scarves that helped create a poignant mosaic in the centre of the Anfield pitch.

Over 3,000 scarves were donated to the Hillsborough scarf appeal, as the global football family came together in remembrance of the 96, and showed their support for the families and friends of those who lost their lives.

But what happened next to the thousands of donations received by the club? Well, LFCTV GO visited locations around the city to find out how a football supporter's most prized possession is being put to a number of different uses.

Some of the local charities who have received scarves include, The Basement Advisory Centre and The Whitechapel Centre, which both provide support to the city's homeless community and Centre 56, which helps women and children who have suffered or are at risk of domestic abuse.

Charlotte Mansbridge, strategic director at The Basement Advisory Centre, said: "When we were first approached by Liverpool FC Foundation with the scarves we were so pleased just to be considered.

"The scarves are fantastic for us as we can never have enough of them. As winter time approaches we will allocate a scarf to every single person who comes to access our services, whether they're rough sleepers or just not in a position to keep themselves warm.

"It's a really nice gift to be able to give to somebody, which has a lot of meaning but also provides a basic need."

Other charities who have received scarves include British Red Cross, White Ribbon Campaign, The James Greenop Foundation, Daisy UK, Whizz Kids, KIND and One Brick at a time in Uganda.

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish, who personally wrote to all 92 English Football League clubs as well as the English, Northern Irish, Scottish and Welsh national teams to ask for their support by way of donating their club scarf, said: "The generosity of our loyal fans and the wider football family has been amazing. Thank you to everyone who showed their support to the Hillsborough families by sending in their scarf."

Margaret Aspinall, chair of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, added: "I am delighted to see all of the scarves being donated to good causes and used to benefit communities.

"We as a group were overwhelmed by the generosity of people across the world who took the time and effort to donate a scarf, which was personal to them. I would like to thank each and every one of them."
