The partnership was launched at the recent Manchester Day celebrations, when the Giants players and cheerleaders joined We Love MCR representatives on Albert Square to meet members of the public.

It will see an array of fundraising activities take place throughout 2015, helping the charity to continue to support and improve the lives and opportunities of Mancunians.
