Fire safety player visits
Our Community Trust works the whole year round to help to educate the young people in Cambridgeshire and beyond. In July 2015 our project in primary schools, in partnership with Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Fire Authority, saw U's players visit local schools as part of fire safety and arson education. Despite it being such a busy time of year for the Club and schools alike, players even managed to drop in to Fowlmere Primary School and Duxford Primary School in the last week of term.
In these two visits alone the Cambridge United philosophy was clear, as Keith Keane accompanied Robbie Simpson in the trip to Fowlmere before even making his debut on the pitch, while young professionals James Akintunde and Ryan Horne took part in an assembly at Duxford. The older pupils had received some informative resources from the Fire Authority, which they presented to their fellow students. The players then quizzed the children on what they had learned, before the tables were turned and the children were able to ask the players anything they wanted. Sarah Toule, teacher at Fowlmere, said: "It was really good to have the opportunity to speak to the players and ask questions."
This is a great example of the way our Trust is able to extend non-traditional educational opportunities to strengthen the messages our partners want to deliver. Danny Kerrigan, Community Trust Manager, said: "The Year 6 pupils at Duxford and Fowlmere did a brilliant job at presenting to the rest of the classes – they had clearly learned lots about the topic of fire safety. However, opportunities like this are also very important for the personal development of our players, especially young professionals like Ryan and James who took part in their first school visit without a more senior player."
