The former Liverpool striker broke the exciting news to the family that they have been invited to an unforgettable experience at Anfield once supporters are allowed back into the stadium.
Stephen has autism and struggled with his social skills before he first joined the Kicks programme last year. Having never played football before, he now actively takes part in the sessions each week and has even started playing for the team in the competitive disability leagues, representing LFC Foundation.
Matt Scammell, Commercial Director, Liverpool FC, said: “During the last three years, our partnership with Joie has helped to bring unforgettable experiences to some of our deserving fans and families, who have each been battling through difficult times.
“Joie is a brand that really embraces and promotes family values, echoing perfectly the philosophy of Liverpool Football Club. We are very much looking forward to continuing this important work with Joie, as well as offering our fans new and exciting products for young fans and families through the partnership.”
Joie’s Managing Director, David Welsh, said: “It has been an honour to work with such a community focused club over the last three years, and we are all very excited to see what our partnership can achieve next. We want to continue to support local families through the club’s various outreach programmes, ensuring that the beautiful game is accessible to all.”
