James Milner headed to Anfield Sports and Community Centre (ASCC) this week to visit participants of LFC Foundation’s summer camps.
The Reds’ vice-captain met with youngsters attending football and multi-sports camps - which are funded through his own charity, The James Milner Foundation (JMF) - to see first-hand how participants benefit from the sessions.
For the past three years, JMF has made an annual donation of £16k to LFC Foundation, allowing local Anfield children to enjoy safe and fun activities throughout school holidays.
Free-of-charge camps run during the half-term and summer breaks and offer youngsters the chance to take part in a variety of sports including football, dodgeball, cricket, hockey and rugby - with over 1,000 young people benefitting from the sessions to date.
Together, LFC Foundation and JMF aim to encourage children aged 6-15 years to participate in healthy recreation and lead more active lifestyles.
Both charities promote physical activity in young people throughout the UK by focusing on the development, improvement and provision of sporting opportunities – with a particular focus on football, rugby and cricket.
