Premier League football star Vincent Kompany will donate proceeds from his testimonial season to tackle rough sleeping in Manchester.
The Manchester City defender has teamed up with Andy Burnham, the mayor of Greater Manchester, to launch fundraising campaign Tackle4MCR.
Mr Burnham has pledged to end the need for rough sleeping in the city region by 2020 and on his first day in office he set up the Mayor's Homelessness Fund, and donates 15% of his salary every month.
The fundraising drive will culminate in the Belgian international's testimonial gala match at the Etihad Stadium at the end of the season.
Mr Burnham said he was "very proud" to link up with Kompany.
