U's Deliver New Project

11 July 2016

FITC programme teams up with Hope Not Hate.

These workshops were split into two sections; there was a theory session which was taken by Hope not Hate Ambassadors, which was then followed up by a linked session by our Football in the Community Coaches.

Both organisations provided a month long programme consisting of four workshops that would link education, inclusion and diversity into sport and physical activity.

Colchester United Football in the Community have teamed up with charity Hope Not Hate to run some co-operative sessions in schools in Colchester and North Essex.

All the schools involved were extremely pleased with the results of the project and a short film covering some of the project is currently underway.

Zalda Guerani of Baynards Primary School said: "I thought the project was very successful, it got across the messages well and the balance between practical and classroom based tasks were good. The children enjoyed it!"

"It's fantastic to see that whatever issues or topics covered in the classroom we are able to use the power of sport to reinforce these messages and make sure all learning styles are catered for when it comes to delivering these workshops."

Colchester United Football in the Community Development Officer Tom Tayler added: "It was great for us to work together with Hope not Hate on a project like this.
