As an international superstar you’d imagine Liam Payne must be pretty hard to surprise in the present department.  But thanks to some super thoughtful One D fans, the singer is about to receive a gift with a difference.

When faced with the challenge of buying for the person who appears to have everything, a group of Liam’s resourceful followers decided to set up a fundraising campaign to mark the singer’s upcoming 23rd birthday.

Using a Just Giving page, the fans who “would like to give back” are using the popstar’s birthday to raise money for the Way Youth Zone in Wolverhampton – a community centre in Liam’s hometown.

The page reads: “Liam Payne has done so much for fans so we the fans would like to give back.”

“In honour of his 23rd birthday, we are collecting donations for  the Way Youth Zone in Wolverhampton, a purpose-built facility for the city's young people aged 8-19 (and up to 25 for those with disabilities).”

Cheryl’s boyfriend eventually heard about the fans’ plan through his mother and took to Instagram to express his gratitude.


Alongside a picture of an article about the fundraiser, Liam wrote: “My mum just showed me this who’s ever idea that was thank you so much what an amazing birthday present” (sic).  Awh!

Fair play to the fans for coming up with such a positive way of marking the singer’s special day.
