Scotland footballer Steven Naismith is to host a charity lunch where he will buy Christmas dinner for homeless people at a shelter.
The Everton striker is set to fund the event which is similar to the charity work he did in Glasgow while playing for Rangers.
Naismith, 26, is hoping to continue raising awareness of homelessness by supporting the lunch at Liverpool’s Whitechapel Centre, while still funding the Loaves and Fishes charity in Glasgow.
A statement on the Whitechapel Centre’s website says: “We couldn’t be happier that Steven has chosen The Whitechapel Centre to host his meal for the homeless of our city, and those who use our services feel exactly the same.
“For us it is wonderful that someone with such standing within the community has recognised the need to support those less privileged than themselves, whilst at the same time bringing recognition to the work that we do.”
