Former Liverpool forward Robbie Fowler joined children's charity Variety to present a bespoke 'Hillsborough 96' coach to Our Lost Love Years (OLLY) at Anfield on Thursday.

The specially designed 'sunshine coach' was donated by the club courtesy of funds raised at a dinner last November, when Variety honoured the 96 supporters who lost their lives on April 15, 1989.

Sponsored by LFC, the vehicle will transport children on day trips and outings, with the money raised by the aforementioned event allowing for the purchase of four coaches in total for disadvantaged children across Merseyside.

OLLY provides children and young people who have suffered the loss of a loved one with support and a range of activities to help re-establish and maintain fun and friendships in their lives after a traumatic experience.

Ian Ayre, chief executive officer at Liverpool, commented: "We are delighted and privileged to present this coach to the OLLY charity alongside Variety and the Hillsborough Family Support Group."

Hillsborough Family Support Group chair, Margaret Aspinall, added: "The HFSG is delighted that Variety, the children's charity, chose to honour the Hillsborough 96 with this wonderful gesture which will benefit disabled and disadvantaged children in Liverpool.

"We cannot thank LFC enough and seeing the children of the OLLY charity and their reaction to the sunshine coach is a real privilege and we are so thankful to Variety for all their hard work in making this happen."
