United at the centre of Oxfordshire's community
The focus is on Community this Saturday as Oxford United welcome Morecambe to the Kassam Stadium.
The club works very hard to put Oxford United at the heart not just of Oxford but of the whole of Oxfordshire and Saturday will be Community Day, with a huge range of activities planned around the ground before kick off.
It’s a chance for families to come along and talk to the community team as well as local charities and organisations. There will be a broad range of activities for people of all ages including tennis, taekwondo, yoga, and bowls.
Caroline Robbins, Community Operations Director, said
“We are very proud of the work we do in the local community and both Darryl Eales and Mark Ashton have often spoken at length about the importance of a thriving Community Trust in any successful football club.
“Saturday is just a chance for people to come along and see some of the activities and events that we support across the county and to get involved. We have big plans for the future and next month will see a Gala Dinner to officially launch the new Community Trust. The level of support we have had for that is fantastic and very encouraging for the future.”
Fans can get more involved with supporting the Trust though the 30United fundraising campaign. If you know anyone who would like to get involved then email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Gala Dinner takes place on Thursday 29th October and guests include England manager Roy Hodgson along with a number of other high-profile established luminaries from the worlds of sports, entertainment, politics and culture.
Attendees on the night will be treated to a three-course meal, top drawer entertainment, and they’ll also have the opportunity to bid for a number of money can’t buy prizes to raise money for the Trust, including signed football boots from some of the world’s top players.
