Charlie'sTrust was established in memory of Charlie Liversidge, who was knocked down in a neighbour's driveway in Dore, Sheffield, inApril 2008. The charity works to provide educational opportunities for children and young people in South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire.
Its latest initiative is the donation of a minibus to the club's community arm, the United Initiative. The 16-seater vehicle will be shared by Penny Acres Primary School in Holmesfield, between Sheffield and Chesterfield, which Charlie attended.
Charlie's parents, Andrew and Jo, will be presenting the keys to the minibus at United's match against Stevenage this afternoon. They will be joined by more than 100 of Charlie's school friends and family at the event, where a poem dedicated to him will also be read out.
