Community Day A Huge Success

U's community programme showcases its successes

8 April 2019

Colchester United's Football in the Community Day was a big success at the weekend, as our community programme showcased its work of the past year at the U's home game against Oldham.

Participants from a wide range of programmes were invited to the day, with many able to show off their talents on the pitch both at half time and after the game.

Key stakeholders were also invited to the match, as the U's community scheme celebrated a successful twelve months in Colchester and the local area.

Colchester United Head of Community Corin Haines said: "I would also like to take this opportunity to thank partner organisations and participants for their attendance at Saturday's Community Day, but more importantly the ongoing support to us as a charity, it really does underpin us making a real difference to people lives within our communities.

"The past year has again seen us enjoy manageable growth both in terms of workforce developments and provision offered - with new programmes such as United Against Knife Crime, Britain Stronger Britain Together, National Citizen Service, and our expanding Disability offer.

"Our Unite our Communities strategy has and will provide us with a clear framework to ensure we continue to impact our communities in a positive way. We look forward to you all joining us with our onward journey.

"From me and all of the staff at Colchester United Football in the Community, thank you all once again for supporting the day."

There's a busy Easter programme coming up for the Community team, so take a look at our Official Soccer Schools website for more details.
