MFC Foundation have introduced a new way for Boro fans to sign up and back their life-changing work in our region.

The Foundation is grateful to have many businesses and organisations pledging their support to wide-reaching projects.

Now, by popular demand, a new scheme has been introduced where individuals or families can become a 'Friend of the Foundation' and feel part of the team.

Throughout this year in particular, the Teesside community has come together with incredible generosity and willingness to support each other.

This latest idea sees Friends of the Foundation each pitch in £5 a month, funds which will help the charity continue to make a huge impact every day.

All Friends of the Foundation will be given the option to have their name on a website Hall of Fame, highlighting their support and commitment.

They will also receive a quarterly newsletter informing them about the impact their donation is making, and they’ll also have the chance to be entered in a free quarterly draw for Boro goodies.

How do people sign up?

There are two ways:

Via Mobile Phone

Text FRIEND to 70480 to donate £5 a month. Texts cost £5 plus two standard rate messages and you’ll be opting in to hear more about our work and fundraising via telephone and SMS. If you’d like to give £5 but do not wish to receive marketing communications, text FRIENDNOINFO to 70480.
