Everton’s in-house charity group Everton in the Community have won plenty of awards for their outreach services, and with Crimbo upon us (Christmas, for you folk across the pond), Blues across the organization wanted to play a part.
Players former and current and the manager as well picked up the phone to talk personally to a hundred season ticket holders and EitC participants a Merry Christmas. See the tweets below for various other activities around the area that the Blues participated in.

Ever since former manager David Moyes had coined the phrase “The Peoples’ Club” to describe Everton, the club have continued in their efforts to support the community and live up to the moniker.
