A group of Liam Payne fans from all over the world have raised $6,263.46 for The Way Wolverhampton Youth Zone to celebrate the global superstar’s 24th birthday.
Liam Payne, local lad and One Direction star, visited The Way for our topping out ceremony when the iconic £6 million was being built in School Street.
Over the past two years, 1D Fans Give have raised over $8,600 for The Way Wolverhampton Youth Zone. In October 2016, Layne Faire and Sheena Peel from the group 1D Fans Give popped by to see how the money raised would be spent.
Layne Faire, representative of 1D Fans Give charity team for Liam, said:
“It was wonderful to visit The Way and see how the 1D fandom have helped support the charity. It’s an incredible place for young people.”
