In connection with the appeal made for a motor ambulance to be provided by the Liverpool club, Mr. John Asbury, chairman, has issued the following circular to the shareholders: –
“As you are aware, some little time ago it was decided to present a motor ambulance to the British Red Cross Society on behalf of the Liverpool Football Club. The response of the shareholders to the invitation extended to them for their help and support in carrying out the scheme has been both praiseworthy and gratifying. But the directors would like the list of subscribers to be still more representative. They thin that an effort of this description, which is unique in the annals of football all shareholders should do their utmost to have their names included as donors in such a worthy cause. Let me urge most earnestly, therefore, if you have not already done so to remit whatever amount you can spare towards the fund, and by that means keep the name of the Liverpool Football Club where it has always been in the past – foremost in the work of charity.
Shareholders can hand in their gifts personally if they desire. Directors will be in attendance at the home match v. Oldham, and shareholders should visit the billiard-room of the club.”
