Fazakerley9 is a charity set up in memory of James McVey from the Liverpool suburb of Fazakerley.


James was an active member in his community, an apprentice electrician and keen amateur sportsman for local football team Adlam Park FC, where both he and his father Jamie, played together. James was known to his team mates, and locally as Fazakerley’s number 9. The nickname taken from the Liverpool suburb he lived in, and the shirt number he wore for his football team.


James was tragically taken from us in October 2010 and his spirit is the inspiration for the Fazakerley9 charity. By undertaking numerous charitable projects to help the community that James loved so much, his father Jamie hopes that James’ spirit can be kept alive.


The aim of Fazakerley9 is to improve social well being, reduce the effects of poverty and where possible undertake projects that will enable social inclusion within the Liverpool community.
