Just as the Santa Stroll will bring City fans together to have fun and raise some much needed funds for City In The Community, we’ve also teamed up with musicMagpie.co.uk to keep the spirit of the day going and make raising money for CITC as much fun as the stroll itself.
Instead of asking for donations we’ve come up with a genius plan that means City fans, wherever you are, can make some EXTRA CASH whilst at the same time making money for City In The Community projects.
Follow that link to start selling your old and unwanted CDs, DVDs and games. Each time you do, musicMagpie.co.uk will donate funds to our CITC projects. It’s completely free and you can make yourself a tidy sum at the same time.
City legend and CITC Ambassador Paul Lake has worked on developing this project with musicMagpie.co.uk CEO Steve Oliver, a life-long City fan.
Paul said: “We’ve been working to find the right way to get everyone involved, wherever they are and what better way to raise funds for our community than to do it in an online community such as Facebook?
"We want as many people to visit us on Facebook next week, watch the video and click the link. This way CITC Foundation can ensure that every penny raised goes directly to the Shoot For The Moon partnership.”
Steve Oliver CEO of musicMagpie.co.uk said “This is the first Facebook store of its kind, where you can make money without leaving Facebook. You can chat to your mates, answer friend requests, post on City’s Wall whilst making some extra CASH for yourself and raising funds for CITC. We will donate to CITC every time you click the link on City’s Facebook page and sell your unwanted CDs, DVDs and games. It really could not be easier.”
The Facebook video will feature footage from the Santa Stroll on Sunday, with special appearances from not only Paul Lake but Mike Summerbee as well.
City In The Community, through the Shoot For The Moon partnership, supports vulnerable young people and families in Manchester. The money you raise will make a real difference to these vulnerable people who live on our doorstep and in our community. All you have to do make a change in their lives is get yourself some extra cash by clicking the link on the MCFC official Facebook page to start selling your old CDs, DVDs and games.
