Reds make dreams come true with LFC Dream Ticket
Young Red Sam Kilburn had his dream of meeting his favourite LFC players and Mickey Mouse come true when his family was selected as the lucky recipients of #LFCDreamTicket.
Sam, Charlotte, Gary and Karen Kilburn were treated to the surprise of a lifetime when the Club worked with partners Joie and Thomas Cook Sport to create two weeks of unforgettable memories for the very special family.
Sam, age 10, from West Derby, Liverpool was born prematurely and has suffered from cerebral palsy since birth when doctors discovered a bleed on his brain, later developing epilepsy too. With the tireless support of his family, for the last 12-months Sam has attended the LFC Foundation’s Respect 4 All inclusive sports sessions and, along with his family, Sam has rapidly become a key member of the team bringing to life all of the Club’s values.
The fortnight of fun was kicked off with a special visit to Melwood where the family got to meet their favourite players including LFC’s newest recruit Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain who presented them with tickets to have an extraordinary Anfield match day experience.
At the game, where the Reds soared to a 3-0 victory over Huddersfield, the surprises continued when LFC Legend and Club ambassador Robbie Fowler presented the Kilburns with the trip of a lifetime to Disneyland Paris.
Sam’s mum, Karen Kilburn, said: “It was a great privilege for our family to have been chosen and it was a fortnight we will never ever forget. Sam and Charlotte got to meet their heroes – Liverpool players and Mickey Mouse! We cannot thank the Club enough for our #LFCDreamTicket which has left us all with unforgettable memories.”
