Everton have been named the most charitable football club in the country outside London.

Based on their figures on the use of the latest data from the Charity Commission, Halsbury has compiled an updated list of the most charitable football clubs in England with the Blues in third place on the list.

Everton’s total charity spending of £ 4,632,893, an increase of over £ 1 million more than the year before, is topped by only Chelsea (£ 8,567,040) and Charlton Athletic (£ 6,021,000).

Everton in the Community have also generated £ 1,660,000 in fundraising revenue since 2018, engaging 7,039 local young people in Premier League Kicks sessions over the past year and working with 2,160 people aged 65 and over to prevent social isolation in 2019/20.
