The LFC Foundation’s Military Veterans project aims to support and re-engage ex-military service men and women back into civilian life through the power of football.
Over 100 veterans a week take part in football sessions across Liverpool to help recapture the ‘spirit of service’ and comradeship that is so powerful amongst ex-military personnel and is often lost on their return from service.
It gives veterans the opportunity to increase their physical activity and exercise levels, while improving their mental wellbeing through the formation of new friendships with like-minded people. Alongside the training, there is also access to health, educational, employment and volunteering opportunities.
You can help support LFC Foundation projects like the Military Veterans programme by playing the LFC Foundation lottery. The next draw takes place at the Newcastle United game on Boxing Day, and tickets can be purchased either online or at Anfield on matchday.
In addition to a fantastic cash prize, you can also win a pair of tickets to the 2019 LFC Foundation charity match, with Liverpool Legends to take on their counterparts from AC Milan at Anfield on Saturday March 23.
