Notes to Editors
Manchester United and Aon have worked together on global initiatives bringing attention to pressing issues, including:
Pass It On
– A programme where three Manchester United footballs embarked on an eight-month journey across six continents, engaging clients, colleagues and communities. The balls covered philanthropic events supporting the Manchester United Foundation and supported charities across the world.
Find a Better Way
– A charity founded by Sir
Bobby Charlton CBE
to develop new and more effective ways of identifying and removing the millions of landmines that cause untold suffering in communities around the world. Aon has been proud to lead the drive across the globe to raise the funding needed to support the charity's research and development programme, as well as landmine removal, preventive education, and health care to support those affected.
