Everton FC's under-23 team help buy house for homeless



Everton FC's under-23 team have helped raise £245,000 to buy a house for young people at risk of becoming homeless.

 
The money will be used to buy and run a house near Goodison Park for 16 to 23-year-olds who have fallen on hard times and need a place to stay in Liverpool.


The scheme is being run in conjunction with the club's official charity, Everton in the Community.


Under-23 team manager and former player David Unsworth said it was "the most rewarding thing I've ever done".


"We've done something special and we will continue to help, support and fund the project," he added.
The Home Is Where The Heart Is campaign, launched in November, will also support young people by offering support and assistance with education, employment and training.
