Official Liverpool FC partner Chaokoh has made a charitable donation to LFC Foundation in support of its joint programmes with Right To Play.
The global coconut milk exporter, which signed a partnership with the Reds in 2016, donated 200,000 TBH (£5,000) to support Thai people in its local community.
An LFC-themed auction was held by Chaokoh at the recent Kop Run Bangkok 2019 presented by AXA, with fans raising the funds by bidding on official signed memorabilia.
Chaokoh’s export sales and marketing manager, Teetiphun Theppadungporn, met with K.Phunyanuch, Right To Play Thailand country director, at a community event in Haroon on Saturday to officially make the donation.
Theppadungporn said: “We wanted to come together with the LFC fans in Thailand to raise money to support Thai people in the community, and this donation to the LFC Foundation and Right To Play is a fantastic way to do that.
“We have run ongoing CSR activities in the local area for some time – it’s important for Chaokoh to support the community to create chances for children to develop their quality of living. The LFC Foundation and Right To Play both have the same aims and values so it’s a perfect fit for us.”
Matt Parish, director of LFC Foundation, added: “We would like to thank Chaokoh and our fans in Thailand for this generous donation, which will support children and young people in Thailand through our joint programmes with Right To Play.
“The donation can help sponsor a number of community play days which bring children together to have fun, learn about important issues and develop life skills.”
LFC Foundation and Right To Play teamed up in May 2019 to launch a global partnership, aiming to provide vulnerable children around the world with the tools and skills they need to overcome the impacts of poverty, conflict and disease.
The multi-year partnership sees the club’s official charity working with Right To Play on joint programmes in Thailand and Anfield, harnessing the power of sport and play to protect, educate and empower children.
