This also ensures that all the funding and income received is re-invested back into the improvement and development of the organisation.

Colchester United Football in the Community was awarded charitable status in September 2014 which enables support from the Charities Commission and the Football League Trust.

Colchester United Football In The Community provides high quality sports and education programmes to children, young people and adults from across the region, currently engaging with 6,500 participants per week from 2-72 years of age throughout Colchester and north east Essex.

Do you fancy embarking on the trip of a lifetime, whilst also raising money for Colchester United Football In The Community's great work in the local area?

Colchester United Football In The Community is currently considering a trip for its staff and fans to volunteer at educational projects in Africa, with African Adventures.

African Adventures is the UK's leading volunteer travel organisation, offering people from all around the UK the chance to enjoy volunteering experiences in Ghana, Kenya and Zanzibar with its long-term partner projects.

By going on a trip with African Adventures, you will experience a whole new culture through volunteering within a close-knit African community.

There are various volunteer roles on offer including multi-sports coaching, building and construction work and teaching, all of which are extremely rewarding and worthwhile, and you will also have time to experience the beauty and culture of the country you visit, with an adventure weekend trip and various cultural activities throughout your stay.

African Adventures stands out from other group expedition or charity challenge providers because they are wholeheartedly committed to their partner projects and believe that volunteering is a two-way street, which greatly benefits not only the children in Africa but you too.

With carefully planned volunteering work, Colchester United Football In The Community has the opportunity to make a real and tangible difference to a local community in Africa, and we are confident that you will return from your volunteering experience a different person.

An African Adventures charity challenge presents a unique opportunity.

As well as helping to make a difference at their partner projects in Africa, you will be raising substantial funds for Colchester United Football In The Community’s incredible work in the Colchester and surrounding area.

Since 2009, they have helped charities and community departments across the UK to fundraise over £250,000.

Come together as a team, build lasting friendships and be part of a motivational and life-changing challenge in Africa.
