Premier League: Man Utd players shake hands with 11 pensioners ahead of Watford clash

Man Utd players stepped on to the pitch to shake hands with 11 pensioners, aged between 61 and 87 to highlight the problem of loneliness amongst senior citizens in the United Kingdom. All the pensioners present at Old Trafford were either volunteers at their local Age UK branch or had benefited from the charity. Man Utd is supporting Cadbury's 'Donate Your Words' campaign in a bid to encourage fans to make a difference to the lives of older people through conversation. In a recent interview with Manchester Evening News, Man Utd’s director of partnerships - Sean Jefferson - said, “We’re pleased to start our global partnership with Cadbury by supporting their ‘donate your words’ campaign. The Club is encouraging all fans to give a few moments of their time to speak to older people around them who might welcome a thoughtful conversation. Any small gesture and interaction can play a part in helping tackle loneliness amongst our older generation."
