We're backing the Rob George Foundation.
Here's a bit more about their great work in our community and beyond.
For the weekend match, we welcome The Rob George Foundation to the Weston Homes Community Stadium to collect before and after the game.
Colchester United take on Leyton Orient on Saturday in what is expected to be the biggest home crowd of the season so far.
As a student, Rob found seeking financial support completely frustrating and demoralising; his family were able to support him – but not everyone is so lucky.
It also gives financial support to young people who demonstrate exceptional commitment and/or ability in the worlds of sport or the performing arts but may be held back by their financial situation from pursuing their goals. In its first year, the charity has awarded some 50 grants to deserving individuals.
Please look out for the RGF buckets and visit their website to see how your kind donations can really make a difference – www.therobgeorgefoundation.org
