Following our hugely successful charity fundraising dinner last week at Old Trafford, the MMMF has made donations of £5,000 each to our four charities:

  • Depaul Homeless Children’s Charity in Manchester
  • Pikassio Libero Munich
  • Buntkicktgut Munich
  • FK Studentski Grad in Belgrade

We have been able to do this thanks to the incredible generosity of the United Family. Together, we remember our beloved Busby Babes.

Hi Pat. This is such incredible news, thank you so much! What an amazing donation, we are so appreciative of this wonderful support for Depaul and the young people we work with. Beth also forwarded on a letter that she has given us permission to share (see below)

Response From Jordi, Oliver and Felix from the Pikassio Libero Project

Dear Patrick, Dear friends and supporters from the MMMF

Wow, we are speechless, for now we just want to give a short feedback/reply, to say a big THANK YOU. We will think of a form to give you some individual feedback together with the youths, thanks again on behalf of the project and the young boys and men participating in it. We want to emphasize the gracious giving from all the supporters to your cause, in times like these (brexit, corona, …) that surely aren’t easy for anyone. This is all but evidently, so again we are very touched and feel very special from this big gesture. We will keep you and the MMMF family in our hearts and minds – NEVER FORGET. 

Response from Rudiger Heid, CEO Buntkicktgut Munich

Hello Patrick, I am fine as well as Matthias and most of the buntkicktgut family.

I confirm that we received your donation of £5000,00 repectively €5.842,09 in the first week of November, and we did so with in a hot excitement and big applause! I am delighted that you are organising such a very special fundraising dinner in these difficult times.

Please express our heartfelt thanks to all friends and participants at the gala as well as to all Man United supporters. This large sum can really help us in these hard times. We will continue to move the children and young people of Munich from all over the world with football on the street and in the hall as long as there is no lockdown and if it comes, then at least digitally.

You’re right, looks like a tough winter is ahead of us. It is times like these that are made for us to stand together – Manchester Munich United! Please let me know if you need any further confirmation in the form of an official donation receipt for your reports or the tax office. Thanks a lot again ! Kind regards

Rüdiger & the buntkicktgut family
