The Blues and Reds of Melbourne raise funds for Manchester

Melbourne’s Manchester City and Manchester United Supporters Club put their football allegiances aside as they gathered to raise funds for the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing.

The supporter clubs gathered at the Imperial Hotel on Bourke Street on Sunday to raise $17,000 for the emergency fund managed by the British Red Cross and the City of Manchester Council.

Over 60 items were raffled to raise money for the appeal, with Melbourne City donating a range items that both City and United fans of the Club snapped up over the day.

Melbourne City would like to congratulate both supporter clubs on their fundraising efforts.
