Last week ten pupils from Forest Gate Academy received an early Christmas present when they were invited to the Manchester United’s training ground at Carrington.
The children were under the impression that they were participating in fun Christmas activities, however, the real reason for the trip was for them to be on the official Manchester United Christmas card with the first-team squad. They also starred in the video demonstrating how the card was made.
The children were amazed when their football heroes unexpectedly appeared to join them on the set, shook their hands and wished them all a Merry Christmas. The children then posed for the photograph with the squad and each received a signed football and other Manchester United gifts.
It was an unforgettable, once in a lifetime experience for the children. After shaking hands with their heroes, many of the children said they would never wash their hands again!
On behalf of the children and staff at Forest Gate Academy we would like to extend a huge thank you to Manchester United for enabling us to be part of a very special occasion.
