Renowned Liverpool FC-focused podcast The Anfield Wrap (TAW) completed a 24-mile charity walk this weekend. The initiative was run in partnership with the Official LFC Supporters Club (OLSC) in Mumbai, to raise funds for the Community Kitchen Project, which combats hunger in Mumbai as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.
TAW members started at Southport FC and passed Bootle FC, Marine AFC and Goodison Park before finishing at Anfield. They were joined by OLSCs in other countries who supported their initiative.

TAW’s John Gibbons spoke to liverpoolfc.com:
“It’s been an incredible day, it’s been really good but it’s been really hard as well, especially towards the end.
“We’ve done it, we’re made up we’ve all done it together and we’re delighted that we’ve raised so much money for an amazing cause, for an amazing supporters club who do so much all the time, but especially during COVID. They’ve really stepped up in terms of what they want to do for their community.
“I think generally the Mumbai Supporters Club embodies everything that’s brilliant about our supporter base really. We were delighted to help them out, we were made up to go the extra mile, literally, to do a bit more for them because we think they’re wonderful.
“The way they support the team and the togetherness that they show all the time is great and inspirational.
“Whenever we’ve gone around the world, we’ve done a lot of raffles for foodbanks here and people are always very generous. So we wanted to give a bit back and we were made up to do that as well.”
