Griffiths & Armour returns as headline sponsor for Liverpool Sportswoman’s Charity Lunch
Liverpool Sportswoman’s Lunch 2023 raises a record-breaking £30,000 for the LFC Foundation
The Fifth Anniversary of the Liverpool Sportswoman’s Lunch (LSL) raised a record total of £30,000 for the LFC Foundation, with funds also being used to support the KJT Academy. The annual charity lunch has become a staple in Liverpool’s events calendar to celebrate the sporting achievements of women.
Griffiths & Armour were pleased to return as the headline sponsor as well as attend the popular lunch, and are proud to support an event that is so important to the Liverpool professional community and raises huge amounts for charity.
A highlight of the day was a Q&A session with champion athlete and Liverpool sporting legend, Katarina Johnson-Thompson (KJT), who recently won gold at the 2023 World Athletics Championships. KJT founded the KJT Academy during the global COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. In partnership with the LFC Foundation, this academy is dedicated to empowering emerging athletes from diverse ethnic backgrounds attending North-West England state schools, by providing them with exclusive access to essential guidance and experiences.
Katarina Johnson-Thompson said of the event:
“It was fantastic to attend and speak at the Liverpool Sportswoman’s Lunch and we are really pleased that the event was run to support the LFC Foundation this year. With an amazing £30,000 raised this will be used by the LFC Foundation to work in partnership with the KJT Academy to support and develop talented, passionate young athletes from some of the most underserved parts of our community in the North West and ensure that their potential in sport – and in life – is not limited by financial disadvantage.”
Debra Heaton, Group Marketing Manager, Griffiths & Armour said:
“What an absolutely fantastic event! The Griffiths & Armour team thoroughly enjoyed attending and as headline sponsors, we are proud to support an event which means so much to the local community and raises funds for charity. Well done to everyone involved and a big thank you to every guest and supporter who made the day unforgettable.”
Griffiths & Armour continues to support charity initiatives and we are proud to support local communities.
We can’t wait to see what the team has in store for 2024’s Liverpool Sportswoman’s Lunch!
