FC United of Manchester will be spreading plenty of festive joy after confirming they will open their doors to the homeless on Christmas Day.

The National League North club will be welcoming those who are struggling to their Broadhurst Park home between 9am and 2pm on December 25.

Last year, over 40 people were looked after at the ground by a large number of volunteers.

As well as food, the club had organised for there to be a dentist, a hairdresser, and people on hand to give medical advice.

The Red Rebels will be hoping it will be another roaring success this year with the homeless people attending receiving toiletries and towels to allow them to have a hot shower.

After serving up a hearty breakfast, the club will then set up a range of activities including table football, pool, computer games and arts and crafts for those attending.

Anybody wishing to volunteer or donate sleeping bags, rucksacks, new clothing such as socks, scarves and hats and toiletries are asked to contact Vinny Thompson at vinny.thompson@fc-utd.net or ring the office on 0161 769 2005.
