We need a sponsor on the shirt

(That got your attention didn’t it)



Or rather we don’t, because we do things differently round here. So when we’re thinking of ways to ensure the club keeps going and plug those financial gaps, we try and come up with something a bit novel.

Something that could raise serious money for club funds, whilst also benefiting others.

Sunday 19 October. The Inaugural FC United Minithon. If you can run, walk or crawl, FC needs you all.

Half of the monies raised through runners’ sponsorship will go to club funds with the other half going to the Medequip charity, which provides hospital equipment for children.

The Minithon will then be followed by refreshments and relaxation at the nearby Chorlton Irish Club with live bands, music plus entertainment from our Juniors.

A "Stroll of Honour" will be put up on the site over the next few days so you can see who and how many have signed up. So far the Board, Margy, Chaddy and several other players have signed up. (They were given no choice by the organisers!)

If every supporter participates and gets their own sponsorship we can raise thousands of pounds for the club and also show that FC leads the way in contributing to the community.

Margy said:

"Leaving aside the fact I’ve somehow been roped into running 5 kilometres, it will be a fantastic day. I’ll be making sure plenty of the players are involved because we’re FC United and we do things differently"

To enter for the Minithon please click on http://www.medequip4kids.org.uk or here to go directly to the registration page.

PLEASE SIGN UP, GET AS MUCH SPONSORSHIP AS POSSIBLE AND HELP ENSURE A POINT OF PRINCIPLE NEVER HAS TO BE BETRAYED FOR FINANCIAL NECESSITY.

There are a number of documents available to help you with fundraising, provide directions and publicise the event in your locality or workplace:
