The Stars come out at night for UNICEF
As a life-long Manchester United Fan, Jonathon was really delighted to receive an invitation for him and his wife Claire to join players and supporters at the annual MUFC UNICEF charity dinner held this month. This year’s dinner celebrated 18 years of the partnership between Manchester United and UNICEF, the world’s leading children’s organisation.
Hosted by Mark Chapman and Rachel Riley and attended by all of the first team squad and staff, it was a star-studded occasion – topped off with a solo performance by Stormzy!
Jonathon and Claire report that the players were extremely friendly and open to talk and take selfies. Jonathon also mentioned that the only slightly morose looking figure present was, true to form, a certain Mr Mourhino!!
The annual event has helped to raise over £4 million for Unicef over the years. This year’s extravaganza netted over £200,000 for the organisation aimed particularly at its vital work in Thailand supporting education programmes for children with little or no access to schooling.
It was a great evening enjoyed by all – hopefully we’ll be invited again next year!
