Jungyu Lee from South Korea has travelled an incredibly long way on his bike to see his favourite team Liverpool FC play in their home city.
His journey took him through 12 countries including, China, Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands and the UK.
We congratulate Mr Lee on his passion, and hope he remembered his passport and airline ticket …. or he’ll be riding home too!
It was a great pleasure meeting with a great family from Cumbria at Anfield on Saturday. It was a freezing day in Liverpool for the game against Swansea, a perfect day in many ways apart from the result! They had the pleasure of meeting with Terry Mac also!

Please help us to help this lovely little girl and her family.
Ellie-Mai is a 4 year old little girl who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in 2014, at just 2 years old. She has battled the past 2 years with countless trips to theatre, chemo cycles and ongoing side effects.
On the 24th November it was confirmed that Ellie had relapsed, her parents worst nightmare, this time round isn’t as straight forward as just having chemo. Ellie will have to undergo a bone marrow transplant. She is going to be spending the next 6 weeks on the Oncology ward as the risk of infection at this time is very high. Ellie spent her Christmas here.
The treatment is very intense. Ellie will begin to lose her hair again in the next 4 weeks and will have many physical changes as well as sickness and other side effects from chemo. As many of you know hospitals are an expensive place and if we come together as a community we can help take the stress of this family fighting a second battle with cancer. Both parents have had to leave their jobs to care for both Ellie who is 4 and her 10 month old younger sister.
I had the pleasure of meeting young Ellie recently, she is a lovely girl with a big heart, please help us to help Ellie and her family (Mike Lepic – 23 Foundation).

Please join us in thanking Yumiko Tamaru (pictured – the lady holding the microphone on the left with the Carra/Suarez picture) and the Official Japanese Supporters Branch for their latest donation. They kindly donated £400.34 which their supporters club and LFC International Academy in Japan had raised.
They held a charity auction, using two framed 23 Foundation photos as prizes. They have also donated some funds to the LFC Foundation. The young lad who bid the highest price for the framed photo of Jamie is from the LFC International Academy Japan. His mother is a disabled lady in a wheelchair and a big fan of Jamie! She looked very happy getting this framed photo of Jamie. The chap who bid the highest price for the framed photo of Jamie and Suarez is a member of their supporters club.
Thank you again Yumiko and to all our good friends from Japan.

It was a great pleasure to meet two smashing lads who have both been very poorly with Leukaemia. The 23 Foundation took them to see the FA Cup game at Anfield yesterday in the hospitality lounges.
On the left is young Alfie with his dad Paul Geraghty and on the right is Joel with his dad Billy Hemans. In the middle is Mike Lepic from the 23 Foundation.
Please join us in wishing the lads all the very best in the future. It’s a pity the game against Plymouth ended goalless, they will never see such a one sided game again!
YNWA lads all the best
