Reds’ fan Mark brings ‘Hope’ to Ethiopia thumbnail

A LIVERPOOL FC fan from Antrim has received a scholarship for changing lives through football.
Business and Economics student Mark Turner has been recognised with an Edge Hill University Excellence Scholarship for his voluntary work in both Northern Ireland and Ethiopia, where - with generous assistance from his favourite club - he has helped build schools and improve children's lives through football.
Mark volunteers for local charity Hope and a Future, which provides education and healthcare for vulnerable children in Ethiopia.
As well as working in the charity's shop and fundraising, he has travelled to Ethiopia twice to take part in projects and see first-hand the impact of the charity's work.
“As a football fan, I am especially committed to the school's football team," said Mark.
“We created it to give the kids a focus and keep them off the streets - an ideology I believe strongly in."
