Commenting on the anniversary, he said: “Growing up in Moss Side, I have always been passionate about supporting the people of Manchester.
“When I first became involved with City in the Community it was a small charity delivering football sessions with local children. Since then, we’ve grown to over 100 members of staff who reach tens of thousands of people each season; aged from two to 85!"
“I am immensely proud of how far City in the Community has come in the last 35 years; having seen first-hand the lives it has changed during that time. I am sure that we will continue to support thousands more.”
Play Find Win CEO and Founder, Dan Schofield, commented: “We are honoured that Play Fund Win has been selected to work with City in the Community to raise much needed funds to support the City Thrive programme. Play Fund Win was set up to support sports clubs of all levels with fundraising and what better way to showcase the Play Fund Win offering than by working with the current Premier League champions.”
