Fans can wear blue for Santa Dash as Everton is voted the most charitable football club outside London

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

Taking their numbers from the most recent data from the Charity Commission, Halsbury has compiled an updated list of the most charitable football clubs in England, with the Blues third on the list.

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

Everton in the Community has also generated £1,660,000 in fundraising income since 2018, participated in Premier League Kicks sessions with 7,039 local youth last year and worked with 2,160 people aged 65 and over to prevent social isolation in 2019/20 .
