Liverpool Announce £59,000 Raised For Sean Cox Appeal

Liverpool have announced today that they raised £59,104 for the Sean Cox’s Appeal during a collection outside Anfield on Saturday.

Sean Cox, who was brutally attacked outside Anfield before Liverpool’s Champions League Semi-Final with Roma, remains in a serious condition and is now making a slow recovery at the National Rehabilitation Hospital.

During Liverpool’s game with Cardiff, volunteers were outside the ground collecting money for the appeal.

In a tweet released by the LFC Foundation,

“An amazing £59,104 was raised at Saturday’s game for the Sean Cox Appeal. The collection was supported by volunteers from @LFC, @LFCFoundation & @spiritofshankly & match funded by the #LFCFoundation. Huge thank you #LFCfamily for supporting Sean’s rehabilitation & long term care.

The club acknowledged the work done by volunteers in the collection on Saturday in a statement released on their website,

“LFC would again like to thank everyone who participated in the collection, either as collectors or donors, while club officials remain in dialogue with the Cox family regarding initiatives to support them.”

There is a Go-Fund-Me page which has raised over €200,000 including donations from Ireland captain Seamus Coleman and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
