One Minute Brief of the Day: Campaign to promote #FootballFriday with @Tackle4MCR @HitsRadioUK & @HitsCash4Kids

Today we’ve got an incredible brief where we can all put our team allegiances aside and use our creativity to celebrate #FootballFriday and help make a difference in people’s lives! With some amazing prizes to be won, we’re really excited to see what the OMBLES come up with today!!


Vincent Kompany's Tackle4MCR and Hits Radio Cash for Kids have joined forces to create #FootballFriday. The fundraising day encourages you to show your colours today to help tackle homelessness. By getting involved you’ll be supporting young people in Greater Manchester who are at risk of or have become homeless.

We want you to share your ideas, headlines, sketches, designs and posters to help spread the message as far as possible about #FootballFriday. A day where we are encouraging all sorts of footy related fundraising, whether that’s you and your colleagues or classmates wearing their football shirts for the day or organising a charity football match, all the money raised on #FootballFriday will go towards Centrepoint who give homeless young people a future. Footy themed selfies are welcome too!!

Please tweet your entries to @OneMinuteBriefs @Tackle4MCR @HitsRadioUK @HitsCashForKids with the hashtag #FootballFriday and include the link below in tweets to encourage donations!

You can also tag/mention @VincentKompany and @AndyBurnhamGM in your tweets too!

Tackle4MCR is a combined effort of Manchester City captain, Vincent Kompany, and the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, to address rough sleeping and homelessness on the streets of our city-region.

Tackle4MCR will catalyse, promote, organise and manage three fundraising initiatives following a considered approach spanning the full length of the football season, for the benefit of the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Homelessness Fund.

This city is a bigger, better place than the place I came to ten years ago.

Yet through it all, homelessness has become a growing concern. We must be honest about that. That’s why I came up with this idea.

I want to shine a spotlight, raise money and to work with partners so that people do not have to sleep rough. I want them to have the dignity they deserve. To do this, I am working with the Mayor, Andy Burnham, and with important partners. I am honoured to have these people alongside.

So, obviously this is not about being Blue, Red, any colour or no colour. It is about being a Manc.

I know it is not easy, but I think it is in the character of Manchester to get started on a problem and then work out all the issues and details as we go along. And the problem is urgent. That is why I am dedicating my testimonial year to the homeless of this city.

Please support Tackle4MCR
