Manchester City and Manchester United have jointly pledged £1m to an emergency fund set up to support the victims of Monday’s attack in the city.
The fund was set up in the wake of the suicide bomb attack at Manchester Arena which killed 22 people and injured 64.
“It is right that we present a unified response to this tragedy,” said Ed Woodward, United’s executive chairman.
“We have been humbled by the strength and solidarity shown by Manchester,” said City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak.
“The hope of both our clubs is that our donation will go some small way to alleviate the daunting challenges faced by those directly affected and that our acting together will serve as a symbol to the world of the unbreakable strength of the spirit of Manchester.”
