A junior football team raised £245 with the helping hand of Manchester United.

Leverington Sports under-10s football team wrote to premier league clubs asking for merchandise they could raffle to raise funds for the team ... and the Red Devils duly obliged.

The Manchester United Foundation sent the club a signed photo of Wayne Rooney.

Forty-nine tickets were sold for the raffle, each for £5, and the winner was announced at a Christmas draw.
