Flowers laid in tribute to Geordie flight victims

Newcastle United, Sunderland & Manchester City fans paid tribute to two fellow football supporters, John Alder, 63, and Liam Sweeney, 28, who were travelling on Malaysian Flight MH17, which was shot down over Ukraine on 17/07/2014.

John Alder, 63, and Liam Sweeney, 28, who were travelling to watch Newcastle United’s pre-season tour of New Zealand, were 2 of the 298 people who died in the disaster.

A fund to raise £100 to buy floral tributes to John and Liam, originally set up by fans from local football rivals, Sunderland, now stands at an incredible £33,171 (17/8/2014).

Liam & John’s families have since chosen the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and Marie Curie Cancer Care to receive any additional funds donated.
