STRETFORD students were treated to a free skate at the Trafford Centre as a reward for their good behaviour and achievements this year.

The children received the treat at Selfridges ice rink as part of a charitable scheme run by The Manchester United Foundation.

The high achieving pupils were selected from four schools across Manchester and included Maariyah Pandor, 13, Aisha Khan, 13, and Bushra Bibi, 14, from all from Stretford High School.

Club mascot Fred the Red was on hand to give support and the special guest joined the youngsters on the ice.

The Manchester United Foundation works with young people in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Greater Manchester, with a focus on improving the health and wellbeing of local communities through football and other sports.

The organisation was formed to celebrate 50 years of Manchester United playing in Europe and provides football coaching, skills training, personal development and life changing experiences for young people.
