Are you rooting for the reds or blues to win the Manchester Donation Derby?

By Jenn Hughes on October 27, 2023

This Sunday we’re hosting our second Manchester Donation Derby as Manchester United and Manchester City go head to head in the Premier League.

We are asking all City and United fans to donate the price of a match day pint to your team’s page in aid of our Build It Together campaign, which will build our new much-needed hospice in Heald Green.

The first Donation Derby we hosted was in June for the FA Cup Final, when over £1,000 was raised by our amazing supporters. The blues won 2-1 against the reds in the final, but United came out on top in our Donation Derby. Can they hold on to their lead?

After the success of our last Manchester Donation Derby we’re excited to host another one! The match is sure to get everyone on the edge of their seats, so it’s a great time to get involved in raising money for our new hospice and to get your favourite team to win.

If you’re a fan of neither team in the final but still want to take part in the Donation Derby and help to build the new hospice, you can! You can give to the overall campaign, instead of the team pages for City and United.

At the time of writing, City are in the lead. Will they see it through? May the best team win!
