Young United fans can enjoy football fun with Britannia Building Society this half-term (16-20 February), including the chance to meet Fred The Red and win a shirt signed by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Club mascot Fred - and his opposite number from Manchester City, Moonchester - will visit five branches, between 10:00 and 14:00 on the following dates:
Oldham (Albion Street) - Monday 16 Feb
Glossop (High Street) - Tuesday 17 Feb
Bury (The Rock) - Wednesday 18 Feb
Chadderton (shopping precinct) - Thursday 19 Feb

Richard Davis, Britannia's affinity relationship manager, said: "Building closer links with local communities is important to both the club and to Britannia.
"We are delighted to have teamed up with both United and Manchester City to offer fans the chance to enjoy half-term football fun in five of our local branches.
"Supporters of both clubs will have the opportunity to have their photo taken with their club mascot and the chance to win a shirt signed by their team's number seven.
"In addition, the Britannia team will be available to talk about official Manchester United savings accounts and mortgages
Britannia is the UK's second largest building society with almost three million members and a network of 245 branches throughout the country.
