Man Utd and Man City come together to deal with coronavirus pandemic
According to a report by Manchester United’s official website, we have joined hands with cross-city rivals Manchester City to deal with the coronavirus pandemic that has brought the world to a standstill.
Footballing action has been suspended until the end of April as people deal with the rapidly spreading disease that has affected many players and even managers.
Each club will donate about £50,000 as a result of a fund-raising appeal made by a co-operation between the MCFC and MUFC Fans’ Foodbanks.
These donations would be made to the Trussell Trust, which is a network of over 1,200 food-bank centres, including 19 in the Greater Manchester area (h/t ManUtd.com).
By doing so, these food banks will be able to keep up with the growing demands due to the number of people affected by coronavirus across the UK and – not to mention – the world.
Rivalries aside, it is great to see the city coming together as one in these troubled times.
