#ACITYUNITED – MANCHESTER CLUBS FANS COME TOGETHER TO DONATE £100,000 TO LOCAL FOOD BANKS

Manchester City and Manchester United fans have donated a combined £100,000 to help food banks in Greater Manchester meet increased demand from vulnerable people as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Following a new cooperation between the MCFC and MUFC Fans’ Foodbanks to launch a fundraising appeal in response to the impact of the coronavirus, each club will donate £50,000 to the Trussell Trust.  

The Trussell Trust support a network of over 1,200 food bank centres, including 19 in the Greater Manchester area which will be the beneficiaries of this donation.

The donations will help local food banks increase capacity and compensate for the temporary loss of food donations on matchdays through the MCFC Fans’ Foodbank Support and MUFC Fans’ Foodbank.

These groups usually collect supplies outside the Etihad Stadium and Old Trafford before home games, but this has been interrupted by the suspension of football due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
