A Hadassah supporter and football enthusiast in the United Kingdom employs a creative way to amass his contribution to the cause: he bets that his local team–Manchester City–will win and he also bets on the Manchester United team losing.

Whenever Manchester City wins or Manchester United loses, Hadassah is the recipient of his winnings, which he accumulates in a Hadassah charity box. He covers the losses himself. Recently, Manchester United lost zero to three when playing Manchester City, so Hadassah was the beneficiary twice!

“We shall all have to pray for the continuing success of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League and for Manchester United continuing its run of unprecedented losses,” relates Mark Addleman, Director of Hadassah UK.
