DUNCAN FERGUSON is urging fans to sign up to this year’s Santa Dash and raise cash for Everton in the Community.
The Blues’ official charity is recruiting supporters to don blue Santa suits and complete the 5km course through Liverpool city centre on Sunday, December 2.
The club announced its biggest ever charitable campaign to date last week to celebrate the difference that Everton in the Community has made to vulnerable and underprivileged people on Merseyside during the last quarter of a century.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary, the charity is also inviting all Evertonians to be part of an ambitious fundraising campaign to raise £1million to help the charity in its mission to support even more people across the region for the next 25 years – and beyond.
Everton in the Community is asking 40,000 supporters, the capacity of Goodison Park, to raise £25 each to help achieve a target of £1million and Big Dunc hopes to see lots of supporters signing up for the Santa Dash to help reach the target. Ferguson said: “I would like to urge all Evertonians to get behind our 25th Anniversary campaign and sign up for the Santa Dash. The charity staff work really hard to support local people and have achieved so much over the last 25 years.”
