Man v Fat Football team donate over £3,700 to Manchester bombing and British Red Cross

11 Aug 2017

Having completed both a 24 hour football game and a charity auction, the Manchester league of Man v Fat Football have raised over £3,700 for the British Red Cross in their support for victims and their families of the Manchester bombings.

'Man v Fat Football', Manchester is a group of over 100 gentlemen whose goal is to lose weight by playing football.  

Alex Hargreaves, who works at MyCSP, comments, “My husband and the rest of the Manchester members of Man v Fat Football are, by their own admission, larger gents. And, being from Manchester and understanding the importance of the community when you need help, the team were keen to find ways of assisting those people affected by the Manchester bombings on May 22nd

They organised a 24 hour football match, a charity auction and support from local employers, such as Manchester City football club, Sharp Art Tattoo studios and MyCSP and to date they have given the British Red Cross over £3,700 to support victims and their families.”

David Boardman, Communications Director, MyCSP, “We were delighted to support and say a huge thank you to these larger than life gentlemen in their support for such an important cause.”
