I was pleased to read that Former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez makes a £96,000 donation to the Hillsborough Family Support Group. The group was founded by families who lost loved ones in the Hillsborough Disaster in April 1989 which resulted in the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans.
“When he handed the cheque over to me he was very emotional, as I was and the committee was, especially when we saw the amount,” said Margaret Aspinall, chairman of the Hillsborough Family Support Group.
“He just said that he wanted to help with the cause and hoped we get what we rightly deserve.
“We have lots of things that we spend money on; a memorial every year, upkeep of the office and expenses but Rafa just said as long as it helps the group then that’s all that matters.”
