School of Maths Charity Football Match 26th May
School of Maths Staff play Postgrads in an eleven-a-side football match for charity.
On Saturday the 26th May at 12noon at the Armitage Sports Centre, School of Mathematics Staff play Postgrads in an eleven-a-side football match in order to raise money for the Wood Street Mission. This charity has worked with some of Manchester and Salford’s poorest families for over 150 years. Their work helps support children access education as a way of breaking the cycle of poverty.
Over 40 staff and postgraduates will ‘pay to play’ in this event, and in doing so, raise money for The Wood Street Mission. There is a JustGiving page for those who would like to donate towards the event and there will be the opportunity to donate on the day. Everyone is welcome to attend the game itself, which promises to be a lot of fun!
Players jerseys have been donated by Classic Football Shirts, a local football jersey company started by University of Manchester alumni.
