Soccer Aid 2012 Sets A New Fundraising Record!

 

Back in May the fourth bi-annual Soccer Aid match was played at Old Trafford and we are now thrilled to announce that the event raised over £4.9 million for children's charity UNICEF. Soccer Aid was co-founded by Robbie to raise funds for the world's most vulnerable children and the figure smashed all previous records set by the event.

Robbie, a UNICEF UK ambassador, was naturally delighted with the result:

"I'm still basking in the glory of England's win and so pleased that this has been the best Soccer Aid yet with almost £5 million raised for UNICEF – for children. Thank you so so much to everyone who donated on the night or bought a ticket to the match - we couldn't have done it without you."

The money raised by this year's event brings the Soccer Aid total to over £12 million and will be spent helping to save children's lives by providing food, vaccines and other critical supplies. 

Thank you and congratulations to everyone who donated - it couldn't have been reached without you!
