Online auction site Givergy has chosen Purple Heart Wishes to benefit from its prize draw for a VIP hospitality experience at Manchester United.
The fundraising opportunity was offered to one lucky charity by Givergy as part of its sponsorship of The Nicest Job in Britain, a not-for-profit initiative which helps charities across the UK do more good.
The scheme recently asked charities to apply to request a visit from the company’s National Philanthropy Manager. It was inundated with applications, with over 100 charities putting their name forward in the first 72 hours, that sponsor Givergy offered the prize as a thank you.
Hundreds of charities applied, and Purple Heart Wishes, which supports adults aged over 18 with a terminal illness, was selected at random.
Old Trafford hospitality
Football fans can buy a ticket online to try to win the prize draw for just £10. Tickets are on sale until Friday 29 April 2016.
The winner will win hospitality for four people to watch a game from an exclusive hospitality suite at Old Trafford. The package includes pre-match dining and post-match drinks. Guests will be hosted in an invitation-only suite reserved for VIPs of the club and celebrities.

Sue Roughton at Purple Heart Wishes said:
“We’re so grateful to have been chosen as recipients of the funds from this prize. We help seriously ill adults at the most difficult time of their lives and the money raised from the prize draw will make many future wishes a reality.”
Luke Cameron, last year’s winner and Managing Director of Nicest Job in Britain, said:
“We’re so excited to have access to this incredible prize and would like to thank Givergy for providing the platform to auction this to the public. We hope it raises lots of vital funds for the lucky chosen charity, which will be announced next month.”
