Following our successful dinner on 11th November we made the following payments to the five charitable organisations we support:

  • Depaul UK Manchester £4000.00
  • Derian House Chorley £7000.00
  • Buntkicktgut Munich £4000.00
  • Pikassio Libero Munich £4000.00
  • FK Studentski Grad Belgrade £2000.00
  • Total £21,000.00

Here is the feedback we received from our friends in Manchester Munich and Belgrade:

Carly Lyes – Depaul

Hi Pat

This is incredible, thank you so so much for your continued support, it means so much to the people we work with and has such a huge impact.

I was wondering if you’d like to put together a little email we can send out to the recipients, like a sort of digital gift card, that explains more about who the Foundation are, why they raise funds in memory of the Babes, maybe a couple of pictures?

We tell all recipients about the Foundation but it might be nice for them to get a personal touch email they can refer back to as well. (Pat has done this).

Thanks for hosting such an amazing event last month, I really enjoyed it. It feels like you’re building a real community now, and it was great to see so many of the families represented, you get the sense they really appreciate it.

Hope you’re resting and recovering well, look forward to seeing you at some point soon.


Lydia Kendall – Depaul

Hi Pat,

I’d just like to echo Carly’s sentiments and say a huge, huge thank you for such a generous donation. It really is incredibly impactful as you know, and will go such a long way in supporting the young people we work with to feel fulfilled, comfortable, and at home.

Ann Marie Fishwick – Derian House Chorley

Hiya Patrick

Wow! Thank you so much.

Please can you send me your address so I can send you a Thank You letter?

Also, I would love to invite you to the hospice for a tour of our facilities. It would be great to show you what the money you have donated is going towards. If you let me know a date that’s good for you I can check my diary.

Kind regards,

Ann-Marie Fishwick
Community Fundraiser

Rudiger Heid – Buntkicktgut Munich

Good evening Patrick,

I am so happy to see your great ambition and engagement to assist and support our projets and organisations in Munich and elsewhere. Thanks for all – Manchester and Munich will stay together forever.

Your payment arrived successfully on our account this week, exactly €4526.00. Thank you very much for this amount, it will help us really in our daily work for young people by the power of football.

Let’s soon exchange about your next visit in Munich during the memorial day in 2023 when we hope to meet you and John Shiels from the Manchester United Foundation with his youth group. This might be the start of a certain kind of youth exchange between Munich and Manchester by the means of football. I am looking forward to promoting this idea.

Best regards

Rüdiger and the buntkicktgut team

Oliver Groth – Pikassio Libero Munich

A warm thank you from all of us for the overwhelming donation.
