Oxford United will be celebrating the fantastic work of the club’s charity on Saturday via ‘Community Day’.
A bucket collection will take place around the stadium ahead of our SkyBet L1 fixture against Wycombe Wanderers.
All funds raised will go into Oxford United in the Community’s Dream Big Appeal to help the registered charity make an even bigger difference to peoples’ lives in our community.
Chris Lowes, Head of Operations at Oxford in the Community said: “The response we’ve had to our 30-year anniversary has been fantastic. The Dream Big campaign will help us take the charity to the next level and help more people in our community. We’re appealing to United fans to get behind us and play a big part in shaping a positive future.”
Community Day and the Dream Big Appeal are part of the celebrations to mark the 30-year anniversary of the charity.
The charity and the club distributed 1,000 tickets for Saturday’s game between every primary school in Oxfordshire to celebrate the milestone with the community. Children will be treated to face painting, football skills sessions and stadium tours.
