At 5 Times Events Ltd we organise many different types of event to bring Reds fans closer to some of the legends they used to watch at Anfield.
Proceeds from a number of special events organised by 5 Times are distributed to charities close to the heart of the players and to the Liverpool community. These will be clearly advertised as fund raisers.
In 2014 we helped organise the ‘Celebration of the 96’ match, played in front of a full house at Anfield on Easter Monday which, saw two sides made up of Liverpool legends take each other on as a ‘Home XI’ v an ‘International XI’. Managers for the day were former LFC bosses Kenny Dalglish and Gerard Houllier and the event raised £600,000, half of which went to the LFC Foundation, the club’s own charity.
We now send legends around the world to do shows in front of adoring audiences of Reds who lap up every word of the hilarious tales the former players share about their time at the club.
Working with the Hillsborough Family Support Group a £40,000 donation helped fund a Variety Club Minibus for Sandfield Park School, which is an important part of the lives of young people with a wide range of physical, medical, emotional and learning difficulties.
We were also delighted to be able to donate £20,000 to The Teenage Cancer Trust to help them purchase a much-needed bus.
Other donations include £5,000 to the British Heart Foundation and £5,000 to the Walton Centre.
We are guided by the players on which organisations to help, whether through the players’ own charitable foundations or directly to good causes they have been inspired to get involved with.
In 2017 we organised a charity golf tournament which helped Robbie Fowler to raise funds for On Course Foundation, an organisation that helps support the recovery of sick and injured veterans through golf events. We rounded the year off by taking Ian Rush to Australia, helping him to raise £25,000 for his foundation.
In all, we have raised over £800,000 for charities, a figure which – with the help of Liverpool’s generous worldwide fanbase – we will ensure continues to grow.
Not all we do is for charity and some events or activities are commercial. We will never aim to mislead you. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
