Rooftop Slide from The Shankly Hotel to Raise Money for Homeless

This week, we announced our plans to go ahead with one of our most exciting projects: building a rooftop slide to raise money for the homeless.

At Signature Living, our charity partner is Liverpool’s leading homeless charity The Whitechapel Centre. And we’re aiming to raise £500,000 a year for the organisation.

Liverpool locals and tourists can look forward to an exhilarating tubular slide for public use, with money going to Whitechapel.

The exciting slide is expected to spiral down from The Shankly Hotel’s fantastic rooftop terrace, which regularly plays host to vibrant events in the city.

We’re planning for the tube to feature a clear roof to offer riders amazing views of Liverpool as they whoosh towards the ground.

The terrace itself showcases a sensational view across Liverpool, so we can only imagine the thrill of sliding down the city from the top.

This unique addition to the hotel is expected to be of a revised design, following our original plans for the project back in 2015.

The new design wraps three times around the pole, creating a more relaxed experience for riders as they take in an incredible view of Liverpool.

With a vast range of visitors to the Shankly and its Bastion Bar & Restaurant, we’re sure the slide will attract countless Liverpool locals as well as tourists.

There simply isn’t anything like this in Liverpool, so we have no doubt that it will prove a huge hit with both big kids and the little ones!

The Whitechapel Centre in Liverpool

We’re hugely proud to become more involved with The Whitechapel Centre, Liverpool’s leading homeless and housing charity.

Whitechapel does an array of amazing work for the city – the team offer a helping hand to rough sleepers, those who live in hostels and people struggling to manage accommodation.

Their mission is to offer routes out of homelessness and back into the community, taking a practical approach that can takes individual stories into consideration.

The charity operates an Open Access drop-in for rough sleepers to get breakfast, a shower and make full use of laundry facilities.

The Sandon – The Home of Liverpool Football

Voted as the best Liverpool F.C match day pub, The Sandon is a must-see on any tour of Liverpool’s most important footballing sights.

Located just a short walk from Anfield Stadium, this famous venue has been an institution for football fans since both Liverpool and Everton were founded and is famously the ‘birthplace of Liverpool Football Club’.

That’s why The Shankly Hotel are thrilled to announce they will be teaming up with this legendary pub as part of the new Shankly Experience Tour route. Guests will now be visiting the friendly team at The Sandon to uncover the history behind one of the most iconic footballing establishments in Liverpool.

A staple on match days and the perfect place to grab a pint before the game, we are really proud to be working with them to promote their remarkable history and legacy.

The Sandon Pub Liverpool

Facebook.com/TheSandonAnfield

The History of The Sandon

The Sandon was originally built in 1870 as an outlet for selling beers by a local brewer named John Houlding.

John Houlding was a self-made English businessman with an education from Liverpool college and a keen interest in football.

However, back then there was only one main football team in Liverpool, St Domingo’s who were formed in 1878 and had no fixed football ground.

John Houlding

Houlding Calls A Meeting at The Sandon

Houlding’s interest in football led him to become more and more involved with St Domingo’s and when a ruling was passed that forced the team to play their games at an enclosed ground, a meeting was held at The Sandon.

Having previously played at the public Stanley Park, St Domingo’s needed to find a field they could rent, Houlding suggested a field off Priory Road which was just up the road from Houlding’s brewery.

In 1879 St Domingo’s, now playing at Priory Road, officially changed their name to Everton Football Club and Houlding became their first president.

Everton Move To Anfield Road

The arrangement with the owner of the field off Priory Road didn’t last long and the team were eventually asked to leave.

St Domingo’s

As the club’s president, Houlding secured a new pitch at Anfield Road, paying a small rent to John Orrell, a fellow brewer and friend of Houlding.

“As many reds and blues know, in the early 1880’s Everton Football Club used to play their games at Anfield.”

The first football match at Anfield Road was played on 28 September 1884, when Everton beat Earlstown 5-0.

Houlding led many Everton Football Club meetings from his brewery, The Sandon. The pub became the headquarters for the team and was used as a dressing room by the players for many years.

The Transformation

The Sandon continued to be used as a hub for Everton Football Club and for over 10 years the team were transformed from amateur enthusiasts into League champions.

Anfield 1891

Stands were erected at the Anfield Road ground and attendance figures reached 8,000 per game.

In 1888 Everton became a professional football club and played their first Football League fixture against Accrington Stanley on 8 September 1888.

The club continued to grow and in the 1890-91 season, Everton won their first championship, playing in front of crowds of up to 20,000.

Success Soon Brings Trouble

As Everton began to gain more popularity, complications started to arise regarding the ground rent and ownership.

In 1885 the owner, Orrell, wanted to use the land for redevelopment, which would have left Everton Football Club homeless and threatened their existence as a team.

The football committee went to Houlding for help and subsequently, he purchased the land at Anfield Road from Orrell for a sum he couldn’t really afford.

Houlding understood Everton could not offer any promises financially and were only in a position to pay a rent of £100 each year. However, he accepted the terms hoping that with Everton’s growing popularity the team would be able to afford the going rate of £240 a year and the payments would increase.

The Sandon, Oakfield Road, Anfield. 1902

This arrangement continued until three years later when Everton won the Football League title for the first time.

Houlding saw this was the beginning of something big for Everton, becoming champions was a golden opportunity to take the club to the next level.

He proposed Everton should buy his land, plus a plot adjoining it and develop the facilities to cater for cycling and athletics.

It was a visionary idea, as it would mean the club could secure year-round revenue, but the committee rejected it.

They felt the price Houlding was asking for his land was too high at a time when land prices were generally falling.

Many of the club’s members accused Houlding of trying to make a profit at the club’s expense as the rent they were paying was increasing and Houlding wanted only his sparkling ales to be sold at the ground, which would be a considerable profit for him.

So, in January 1892 the club’s 279 members met at The Sandon to discuss the matter.

Everton F.C Leave Anfield

Trouble had been brewing for some time and Houlding clashed with the committee led by George Mahon over the direction the club was heading in.

On 25 January 1892, George Mahon, who had grown tired of Houlding, told members of the club that he had an option to buy Mere Green Field, situated on the north side of Stanley Park.

A second committee meeting took place on 12 March 1892, in the upstairs room of The Sandon that changed everything.

Following this meeting Everton F.C moved to Mere Green Field in 1892, which was to become Everton’s new home, Goodison Park.

The Formation of a New Team

After Everton had moved on, Houlding and Orrell were left with an empty football ground and were in desperate need of a new team.

Houlding decided to form a brand-new club, which he initially called Everton Athletic. The team had an identical crest, colours and league position as Everton F.C.

The Football Association refused to countenance two Everton teams, so Houlding was forced to rethink his strategy.

At the end of March 1892, from The Sandon, Houlding decided to rename the club Liverpool Football Club and it gained official recognition three months later.

The Birth of Liverpool F.C

Liverpool Football Club prospered and became financially sound with astute guidance from their President John Houlding, their first ever game was a friendly match with Rotherham Town, then of the Midland League, on 1 September 1892.

The team won the Lancashire League in its début season and joined the Football League Second Division at the start of the 1893–94 season.

After finishing in first place the club was promoted to the First Division.

Within nine seasons Liverpool Football Club were appointed League champions.

What Happened To John Houlding?

John Houlding was an active Tory councillor, he was later elected to the Liverpool City Council as a Conservative representing the Everton ward, before being appointed Lord Mayor of Liverpool in 1897.

Houlding eventually saw his team win the Football League championship in 1901 but his health was by then giving cause for concern. He took a trip to the South of France which he hoped would restore his strength.

However, during the second week of March 1902, his condition became serious and he died on the morning of March the 18th in Nice at the age of 70.

Tributes were paid to him in all the local newspapers when the sad news of his death reached Liverpool the next day.

At his funeral, players of both Liverpool and Everton carried his coffin as a mark of respect for all he had done for football in the city.

The Sandon Pub

In the early 1980`s The Sandon was re-branded as a fun pub and renamed “The Picture House”. The pub was a huge success until the decline in this sector and was closed in 1990.

After numerous fires, a demolition order was placed on the pub due to it being in a state of dereliction.

In 1994, George Hindley who owned Sam Dodd’s on the other corner of the block, bought the property from the brewery and began the long restoration process to what The Sandon is today.

Over the years other properties were bought in between Sam Dodd’s and The Sandon and the site now has 2 public bars and 6 function rooms.

The Sandon holds a special place in the hearts of Liverpool football fans and was the first official LFC partner to provide corporate hospitality outside of the stadium in 2008.

It offers excellent matchday hospitality in its newly refurbished function suites, one of which is called the Houlding suite.
