Rafa Benitez on hand at the launch of wife Montse’s charity foundation

Liverpool’s Hotel Indigo provided the setting for the official launch of The Montse Benitez Charitable Foundation this week. The Foundation is the creation of Montse Benitez, wife of former Liverpool FC manager Rafa Benitez and comes as a result of her involvement and support, physically and financially, for several local charities since the family’s arrival in Merseyside.

The creation of the Foundation will help co-ordinate Montse’s and Rafa’s efforts in assisting the disadvantaged throughout the region and nationally.

During the launch, Montse Benitez presented her ideas for the Foundation, its role within the community and its goals in front of a strong contingent of journalists representing their respective media and local business people. Also present were, of course, Rafa and representatives and fundraisers of the charities the Foundation hopes to support.

A number of Heswall Community Police Officers were in attendance before departing this Sunday (2 Oct) on a 340 mile bike ride from London to Paris to raise funds for the foundation.

A number of fundraising events are already planned for the coming months with Ladies Lunches, a Winter Golf League and a very special Audience with Rafa to be held at the Empire Theatre on Sunday 16th October.
