Rio Ferdinand is set to put smiles on faces this December as the Manchester United legend donates £500,000 worth of toys & 11,500 sleeping bags to to underprivileged children in Manchester this Christmas. The gesture was part of Manchester radio station Key 103’s ‘Cash for Kids’ campaign.

The former England centre-half who didn’t want to be appreciated for the donation said

”As a father myself I couldn’t see children going without opening a present this Christmas Day – the work that Cash For Kids at Key 103 do is truly amazing.”
