With charity the theme of the day here on Pies, here’s another little yarn to pluck your cockles and warm your heartstrings.

What you are about to see is Manchester United’s Nani, Park Ji-Sung, Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling humping 200 footballs into the back of the DHL van (with a little help from the tricksy driver) at Carrington.

The balls were then couriered 4,395 miles to the ‘World Hope Community Project’ in Kenya, where the van was met by ex-United stars and charity ambassadors Andy Andrew Cole and Quinton Fortune – who duly handed out the balls to 200 local children in Nairobi and had a bit of a kick-about with them…

The net result? Balls for all…

Lovely stuff.
