Man Utd launch fundraiser and Houghton's challenge - Tuesday's goodwill stories

:Headline: Man Utd launch fundraiser and Houghton's challenge - Tuesday's goodwill stories:
Tottenham are celebrating Spurs fans who are key workers on the frontline with their #HotspurHeroes campaign.

Sports stars and clubs across the world continue to help their local communities – and find new ways to amuse themselves – during the coronavirus pandemic.

Here, the PA news agency looks at some of the best examples from May 26.

Football

The Manchester United Foundation is launching a major fundraising campaign to expand its long-term response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 'Donate. Support. Unite.' campaign will involve a raffle with five money-can't-buy prizes and the release of a charity t-shirt emblazoned with the slogan 'United for the Heroes'.

The campaign will raise funds to enable the Foundation, which has already committed £1million to coronavirus-related initiatives, to expand its pandemic response across the UK and internationally.

Manchester United Foundation chief executive John Shiels said: "We're extremely proud and thankful that money raised at our Treble Reunion match this time last year has been able to make such a difference to our local communities, and beyond, during these unprecedented times.

"Our commitment doesn't stop there; we are now giving our fans the chance to get involved by raising even more money, which will be used to continue supporting our communities as we try to start getting back to normal.

"So many people will find the transition back to 'normal life' just as difficult as lockdown, but the Foundation will be there for them at every step."

United skipper Harry Maguire, who is offering a 'Virtual Hangout' prize, said: "I'm delighted to support this brilliant initiative by Manchester United Foundation, especially as it is centred around my own number five!

"The Foundation has done fantastic work so far during the pandemic and with the help of the fans we can continue to make a difference to those who need it most."
