Tackle4MCR is a combined effort of Manchester City captain, Vincent Kompany, and Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham,
Tackle4MCR aimed to address the rising problem in Greater Manchester: rough sleeping and homelessness.
Vincent, born in Belgium, made in Manchester, wanted to make use of the momentum generated by his Testimonial season to help tackle this growing problem.
The funds raised from the testimonal match will go to The Greater Manchester Mayor's Charity with the money directly supporting the A Bed Every Night Scheme - helping to get rough sleepers off the streets into shelters.
Manchester City and Belgium captain Kompany, said: “As I’ve said before, nobody should have to sleep rough on the streets, which is why funds raised by Tackle4MCR will go to the Mayor of Greater Manchester’s Homelessness Charity, and more specifically the recently launched ‘A Bed Every Night’ campaign.”
