Raise money for Shankly the puppy!

A lifelong Liverpool supporter is attempting to raise money for a unique tribute to Bill Shankly.

Lee Hodgson, 46, a passionate Red hopes to mark the 100-year anniversary of Bill Shankly's birth by raising funds to name a guide dog puppy "Shankly" because then another blind person never has to walk alone! 

"I am a totally blind life long Liverpool Football club fan, who has had guide dogs for over 25 years. my dogs enable me to live independently and travel freely. My current guide dog, Emily, is an almost white Labrador Retriever cross. I wanted to pay my own tribute to Bill Shankly for all he did for my wonderful LFC. His forward vision and of course the club's motto, "You'll Never walk alone" are so appropriate for guide dogs. I want to give someone else the chance to freedom and independence that my amazing guide dogs have given me, whilst paying a true and just tribute to one of my all time heroes, Bill Shankly."

Shanks quote

"Our game against Anderlecht at Anfield was a night of milestones. We wore the all red strip for the first time. Christ, the players looked like giants. And we played like giants. We used to play in white shorts with red stripes, white stockings with red tops and white piping on the jerseys. But we switched to all red and it was fantastic. The introduction of the all scarlet strip had a huge psychological effect. I went home that night and I said to Ness: "You know something... tonight I went out onto Anfield and for the first time there was a glow like a fire was burning."

Liverpool wore the all-red strip for the first time on 25th of November 1964 vs Anderlecht
