Everton’s Seamus Coleman Makes Brilliant Charitable Donation

Everton’s Seamus Coleman Makes Brilliant Charitable Donation

Everton right-back Seamus Coleman has proved what a nice guy he is by coming up with a pretty brilliant charitable donation to a very worthy cause.

The Republic of Ireland right-back is currently still recovering from a gruesome broken leg sustained in his country’s World Cup qualifier against Wales back in March, but the 28-year-old has still found time to think of others as he rehabilitates.

Earlier this summer, Everton Supporters’ Club set off from Goodison Park with the aim of cycling 230 miles to Sligo to raise money for the club’s ‘Home is where the heart is’ charity venture.

The hope was to raise £60,000 to pay towards a house close to Goodison Park which will offer 16 to 23-year-olds who have fallen on hard times’ or dropped out of the care system in and around the Liverpool area.

At the end of July, the fund was at £52,000, and it looked like the group would fall just short of their target, but they didn’t back on an extremely generous donation from Mr. Coleman himself:

Not too bad, eh?

We might have a new favourite Premier League footballer!
