The Justice Collective is delighted to announce the official appointment of the three Trustees for the Charity set up to distribute all monies raised from the sales of the 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' Christmas number 1 single.

At the request of Walton MP, Steve Rotheram, Bishop Tom Williams, David Tomkins and Alastair Machray have all accepted the invitation to develop the charity's Terms of Reference and qualifying criteria for the charitable fund.

The sole task of the trustees will be to ensure that all monies raised will be able to be distributed to families of the 96 in their continued legal fight for justice.

Following the pre-inquest hearing on 25 April 2013, it is anticipated that fresh inquests into the deaths of 96 Liverpool supporters on 15 April 1989 will commence in early 2014.

Steve Rotheram explained, "I am delighted that the trustees have accepted my invitation to oversea the distribution of the monies raised. With the three trustees we have the right level of experience and understanding of the Hillsborough disaster and the families can be confident that the monies will distributed effectively and efficiently as they pursue the legal fight for Justice for the 96".
