Exclusive prizes to be won every day next week
Manchester United Foundation’s fundraising raffle will go live at 9am on Monday 1st June, giving you the chance to win some incredible prizes, whilst continuing to support our Covid-19 response.
The ‘United for a High Five’ raffle focuses on the number five, as fans are encouraged to take just five minutes to donate at least £5 to be in with a chance of winning five prizes released over five days.
The raffle will be kicked-off by Manchester United’s very own number five, Harry Maguire, as he offers the chance for one lucky fan to join him on a ‘Virtual Hangout’ to chat all things football.
Harry said: “I’m delighted to support this brilliant initiative by Manchester United Foundation, especially as it is centred around my number five! The Foundation has done fantastic work so far during the pandemic and with the help of the fans we can continue to make a difference to those who need it most. Please donate what you can, and I look forward to seeing one of you online!”
The raffle follows the Foundation’s recent commitment to the local community and beyond throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. Over the past few weeks the Foundation has worked with the club to provide meals for the NHS, donate money and activity packs to partner schools to support their pupils and families, and team up with worldwide Manchester United Supporters’ Club to support local youth charities in their own Covid campaigns.
The Foundation is now asking for the public’s support to continue its response to the pandemic, and in return is offering money-can’t-buy prizes, donated by Manchester United players, legends and partners, over a five-day raffle to commence on Monday 1st June.
John Shiels, Chief Executive of Manchester United Foundation, said: “We’re now giving our fans the chance to get involved in our Covid response by raising money, which will be used to continue supporting our communities as we try to start getting back to normal. So many people will find the transition back to ‘normal life’ just as difficult as lockdown, but the Foundation will be there for them at every step.”
The United for a High Five raffle will launch at 9am on Monday 1st June across all Manchester United and Foundation online channels. Fans can donate via Virgin Money Giving or via text to be in with a chance of winning five exclusive prizes.
