Holiday Fun: Summer 2024 – Football

Wednesday 31 July - Wednesday 28 August 2024

Run, jump and kick this sunny season with Firstsite’s Summer Holiday Fun! Meet your local heroes from Colchester United and Colchester Villa in a fun football coaching session.

Most suitable for 4 – 11 years, but all ages welcome. Caregivers are required to stay on site throughout the activities.

Activities take place outside. Please make sure those taking part in activities are dressed appropriately for the weather.

Our Holiday Fun activities are for families facing economic challenges or who require additional support during the school holidays, including those that qualify for benefits-based free school meals.

Holiday Fun is designed in partnership with African Families in the UK, Bangladeshi Women’s Association Essex, and Level Best Enterprises.

This project has been funded by the North East Essex Health and Wellbeing Alliance and Wellbeing Alliance and the Neighbourhood programme and Essex Community Foundation.  Funding is administered through One Colchester.
