Everton’s full-back Seamus Coleman has donated a house to the homeless teenagers in Liverpool.
Coleman raised £244,400 to buy a house as part of their ‘Home Is Where The Heart Is’ campaign which is located near Goodison Park.
The money raised smashed Everton’s target of £230,000, as they look to give back to the community, including their loyal fans.
The fund-raising efforts were led by Everton’s under-23 side, who are coached by former defender David Unsworth and Coleman was joined by Everton chairman Bill Kenwright and Duncan Ferguson.
The U23 coach said after the donation;”To finally reach the target is an amazing achievement and to have done it as quickly as we have is just fabulous,”
“To be able to finish the project and help the people in Liverpool who need it most, it’s the best and most rewarding thing I’ve ever done.”
“We’ve done something special and we will continue to help, support and fund the project. It’s just great to be able to help people who are less fortunate than ourselves. Thank you so much to everybody who has played a part.”
Coleman recently resumed training after recovering from a broken shin at a Euro ’17 match against Wales.
