Everton forward Steven Naismith reveals plans to donate money to charity Whitechapel Centre in Liverpool to help feed the homeless over Christmas.

Everton striker Steven Naismith has agreed to buy Christmas dinner for the charity Whitechapel Centre, who plan to feed the homeless in Liverpool over the festive period.

The 26-year-old, who supports a similar charity back in Glasgow, has decided to lend his help to the cause in Merseyside and is hopeful that he will be able to contribute annually.

"I support the homeless in Glasgow through a charity called Loaves and Fishes," Naismith told the Liverpool Echo.

"They are similar to the Whitechapel Centre in the work that they do in feeding the homeless and trying to get them into their own accommodation. I am delighted to help the Whitechapel Centre in what is my newly adopted city."

Meanwhile, on the pitch, the Toffees are trying to launch themselves back into the top four of the Premier League table.
