East Oxford United Football Club has been invited to send 17 boys to Perm, Oxford's twin city in Russia, to spend two weeks at the Perm Youth International Football Camp.
WHO ARE WE?
Our club operates a “pay what you can” policy on membership fees in order to ensure that children and young people from low income families in poorer parts of Oxford are included centrally in the club. The majority of trip participants are from families who have been unable to pay the full membership fee of £120 per year. Many of them are from minority ethnic backgrounds and have never travelled outside the UK, with the exception of their parents’ countries of origin.
So this visit to Perm is a fantastic chance for them to have an active sports holiday, to discover a new country and culture and make new friends for two whole weeks!
HOW WE HAVE RAISED SOME OF THE MONEY
Last year we had to postpone the trip - not enough money - but this year we are determined to get there!. We have managed to raise more than half the sum - £7500- and the young players are so excited. The families contribute what they can - but that is not easy. Oxford City, Oxford International Links, local charities and boys' fund-raising have helped. But we still need £3200 SO WE NEED YOUR HELP!
THE FOOTBALL PLAN
The visit ito Perm, Russia is scheduled for August 2017.
We plan to take 17 players between the ages of 12 and 15, accompanied by 2 club coaching staff and 4 parents.
Please donate to my JustGiving Crowdfunding Page and help make this fantastic opportunity for children who don't have much ACTUALLY happen!

All the families have been collecting documents and passports and passport photos. To go to Russia they each need a special Russian visa in their passport. Now that the documents are nearly ready, the whole group is planning to go to London on 1st June in order to give their fingerprints to the officials. Then the Russian authorities will decide whether to give them visas.
