Donate the cost of a match day pint to help your team win the Manchester Donation Derby

City host United in the second Manchester derby of the 2023-24 Premier League season this Sunday. The same day, St Ann’s Hospice will host the Manchester Donation Derby, giving fans of both teams the opportunity to claim the title of ‘most charitable’.

We’re asking 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 appeal for a much-needed new hospice in Heald Green, Stockport.

Which team will be the first to fund a pallet of bricks, a solar panel, or even a room in the new hospice?

This is the third time we’ve hosted the Donation Derby, and it’s currently 2-0 to Man United. Man United took the victory in June 2023 despite City coming out on top in the FA Cup Final, with fans raising a combined total of over £1,000. It was a repeat of those events in the first derby of this Premier League season, with City winning the match but United taking a narrow victory in the Donation Derby.

“We’re excited to host another Donation Derby, and calling for all United and City fans to get involved. City might have the edge on the pitch, but we’re looking forward to seeing if United can make it to third victory in a row in the Donation Derby!” Anne-Marie Wynne, Head of Fundraising and Capital Appeal

If you’re not a fan of either team but still want to get involved and help to build the new hospice, you can! You can donate to the overall campaign on JustGiving instead of the team pages for City and United.

The fundraising pages for the Donation Derby are already open and can be found at the following links:

May the best team win!

The Manchester Donation Derby has been set up by St Ann’s Hospice for the purpose of raising funds for a new hospice in Greater Manchester. The event is not organised or endorsed by the Premier League or the clubs.
