Stars come out for Santa Stroll

Celebrity Blues fans are showing they're game for a laugh by signing up for the Santa Stroll at the Etihad Stadium on 4 December.

More than 1400 of you have already rushed to join in and raise money for the Shoot for the Moon charity, easily passing last year's 850 milestone on the way.

Now David Threlfall, star of comedy favourite Shameless, will be pulling on his sky blue Santa suit for when manager Roberto Mancini kicks off proceedings at 11.30am.

While Shameless anti-hero Frank Gallagher is as lazy as they come, as a lad David would walk three miles to Maine Road with his grandad, so the 2.5k stroll should be a doddle.

He'll be joined by John Henshaw, the hilariously grumpy landlord from Early Doors, and Bill Tarmey, who played much-loved Jack Duckworth for 30 years in Coronation Street.

But everybody will be a star on Sunday, as a fun day out boosts the partnership between City and Sport Relief to help young people and families in east Manchester reach their goals.

Entry costs £15 for adults and £12 for children, including the exclusive sky blue Santa suit, a race number, medal and a goodie bag upon completion.

All participants will also receive 15 per cent off at the City Store on the day on production of a valid race number.

Tickets are now available to purchase in person at the box office or online at  www.mcfc.co.uk/santastroll. Suits will be available to collect from Thursday 1 December.

For Blues abroad, there's a signed and framed photo of Mario Balotelli celebrating his first goal in the derby to the best posing Sky Blue Santa.

The more original your picture, the better, and if you can pose in front of an iconic landmark, you'll certainly go a long way to impressing the judges!

The photos we receive will be showcased in a gallery of worldwide City Santas here on mcfc.co.uk.

Here's what you need to do:

1) Find and contact your nearest MCFC Supporters Club.

2) Request and purchase your blue Santa suit through them by donating to Santa Stroll.

3) Take your photo and email it to competitions@mcfc.co.uk
