Trophy on local tour

Reverend David Ireland, chief executive of Francis House, said: "We're very grateful for the support we receive from the Manchester United Foundation. There was real excitement when Fred the Red arrived and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience of seeing the trophy up close."

Other stops on the Premier League trophy’s local tour included the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, Manchester Grammar School and Newton Heath Academy, plus partner schools of the Foundation - Astley Sports College, Manchester Enterprise Academy and Burnage Media Arts College.  Fred also took the silverware to Wythenshawe and Stretford, giving children involved in the Foundation’s ‘Street Reds’ community football projects the chance to have their photo taken with the trophy.
