Building a bond between York City & local schools
Building a bond between York City & local schools

Promoting YCFC in the local community

From the earliest days of the Trust, the development of community links has been an important part of the Trusts work.

This was exemplified by the Trusts Fun Day at Westfield back in February 2002 when, amongst other things, the 700 kids (& staff) were greatly entertained by a furry lion and City players (and the whole day raised over 500 for the Trust).

Another example is in Summer 2002, when the Trust announced its significant contribution towards Oaklands Schools Sports Community project the first in the region. There are several aspects of the ongoing developments at Oaklands that gel with the Trusts own vision of sport/football playing a larger part in the life of this city than it has in the past.

Another excellent new initiative by the Club is the creation of the York City Learning League. This is a new educational partnership between the Club and local primary schools including visits to schools by City players to promote literacy.

And, of course, within the last week or so, the Club received over 100 entries from local schoolchildren to the anti-racism poster competition.

Anyone interested in helping the Trust/Club build further links with local schools/community in the future, please do get in touch.

York City is more than just a Football Team. The Club is not only a place where local people come together to watch football in a safe and friendly environment, but also a means of delivering community and education work.

York City at Bootham Crescent at the heart of the community.
