Lloyd Brothers Unveil Artwork At Melwood

Posted by

Three special brothers, who are all huge Liverpool fans, have unveiled some exclusive artwork at Liverpool FC’s training ground, Melwood.

The Lloyd brothers, twins Dan and Sam, 17, and their younger brother Tom, 14, produced three unique pieces of art which was auctioned off recently at the ‘Liverpool Love’ exhibition at the Museum of Liverpool.

The artwork was bought by Liverpool FC with proceeds from the sale going to Claire House, the children’s hospice that Dan, Sam and Tom attend.

Ian Ayre, Managing Director of Liverpool Football Club, said: “We are delighted to receive these special pieces of artwork from the lads today. The paintings have taken pride of place at Melwood and will be seen every day by all the players when they finish training.”

The brothers, who are all affected by Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a muscular degenerative disease which affects one in 3,600 boys, have all received invaluable support from Claire House for the past 10 years.

Helen Carlson, Northern Area Manager for Claire House, said: “The Lloyd brothers are a great reflection of the amazing spirit of Merseyside. They all share a love and dedication to Liverpool FC and are honoured to know their pictures are on display at Melwood.

“Claire House understands that life is precious and we strive to give our children and young adults the best care available.  The money raised from these paintings will really help us to make a difference to our local children who need us most.“
