Liverpool stars Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane recently presented children from four local schools with free tickets to the Premier League match against Newcastle United on Boxing Day.

Red Neighbours invited pupils from Millstead SEN School, St John’s Catholic Primary School, Alsop High School and Notre Dame Catholic College to Anfield to collect their tickets and enjoy an afternoon of festive games with the players.

As part of Red Neighbours’ focus on creating memorable experiences for young people, more than 1,000 free tickets will be donated to local schools during the 2018-19 season.

Fifty-five tickets are provided for each home game, with 21 primary and four high schools in the L4, L5 and L6 postcodes benefiting across the season.
