Ever the good egg, Rio Ferdinand has donated over half-a-million quid’s worth of toys to help ensure that no child in Manchester goes without a present on Christmas Day.

Ferdinand made the donation on behalf of his Rosso restaurant as part of the ‘Cash for Kids‘ charity mission being run by Key 103 radio station.

If you’ve ever wondered what £500,000 of toys looks like, then wonder no more…

Speaking to Manchester Evening News, Ferdinand himself said:

As a father myself I couldn’t see children going without opening a present this Christmas Day – the work that Cash For Kids at Key 103 do is truly amazing.

I’m glad that my restaurant Rosso and I can be involved in this and certainly help put a smile on locals kids’ faces this Christmas Day.

It doesn’t end there though, with the MEN also confirming that Rio has also donated 11,500 sleeping bags to a Manchester homeless charity to help out people sleeping rough in the city this Christmas.

Good on him. What a champ.
