The LFC Foundation announced on Twitter that they have raised over £250k through fan donations.
Liverpool legends were fixed to come up against Barcelona legends on March 28 of this year, but the game was cancelled due to the coronavirus breakout this year.
Liverpool Fans who were meant to attend this year’s LFC Foundation’s official legends charity match at Anfield have now donated more than £250,000 back to the charity from their ticket refunds.
We can't believe the generosity of our @LFC Family ❤️

Surplus donations of about £47,000 have also been generously made by LFC’s matchday boardroom committee and executive lounge members to LFC Foundation.
The donation will help provide support in three key areas of the club’s COVID-19 recovery response work, including food poverty, mental health and unemployment.
