Manchester City staff, players and coaches have brought some Christmas magic to the lives of people across Manchester by donating funds, thousands of gifts and countless hours of support to those that are most in need.

At the end of a particularly challenging year, the Club’s staff, coaches, players and legends have funded, wrapped and delivered Christmas presents to every primary school child in East Manchester and every child in the care of Manchester City Council across the city – a combined total of 5,500 presents.

Our annual Christmas visits to local hospitals were also adapted to ensure that men’s and women’s players could still meet with many brave young patients this year, with video calls made to Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, The Christie, Francis House Children’s Hospice and Wythenshawe Starlight Ward.
