The Cityzens Giving for Recovery auction and sweepstake is live NOW and will close on Thursday 25th March at 5pm.
Every penny raised will go towards supporting targeted recovery projects near each of City Football Group’s clubs, which all aim to make a positive difference in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Auction and sweepstake items on offer include:
- Virtual meet and greets with current and former City players (including Kevin De Bruyne and Mike Summerbee)
- 17 signed, match-issued Manchester City away shirts from the 2-0 win vs Burnley on 3rd February
- A chance to play FIFA 21 against current City stars
- 2 x Business Class Flights to Abu Dhabi with Etihad Airways
Funds generated will support recovery efforts in ten cities where CFG has clubs; ranging from providing mental health support to young people affected by the pandemic to supplying the most vulnerable families with free, healthy meals, and reconnecting children to their education.
In Manchester, the long-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on children’s mental health was highlighted as a major concern amongst carers and parents.
To support, CITC has developed a new wellbeing programme which will harness the power of football to help provide support for thousands of people aged 14 to 25.
A dedicated team has developed a new mental health curriculum, blending specially adapted football sessions with one-to-one mentoring and group workshops on mental health awareness, to improve mental wellbeing.
