African Adventures

Sky Blues in the Community along with dedicated volunteers will be taking a trip to Kenya in April 2020. This is something we have wanted to do for a long time and we are now making this opportunity happen.

Sky Blues in the Community have teamed up with African Adventures to offer the opportunity of a lifetime to Kenya in April this year. 

Sky Blues in the Community team of volunteers will spend 10 nights working in schools in Nakuru, Kenya’s fourth largest town. The trip aims to raise funds for Sky Blues in the Community, whilst supporting African Adventures’ partner projects in Kenya and providing local people with a life-changing experience.

Sky Blues in the Community volunteers will be working in the following roles:

  • Teaching and Multi-sports: Supporting children’s education is at the heart of this role. Activities include: assisting teachers with lessons for children aged 3-17, reading stories, preparing meals, playing games and sports, and general interaction. The enthusiasm from children, who are so eager to learn, makes this role so rewarding.
  • Building and Renovation: With overcrowding an issue at the projects, improved facilities are needed to accommodate growing numbers and create more learning spaces. Tasks include painting, moulding bricks, and assisting with the build of school facilities. Clear progress makes this challenging and rewarding role so worthwhile.

It is our intention to raise all the money required to embark on this trip, one of the ways we are going to make this trip a reality is through donations and fundraising.


JSB Family Zone

The Family Zone is a very special area of a Coventry City match day – dedicated to our young fans and families, to help make coming to support their team extra special.

Every Saturday home game from 1:30pm to 2:30pm, a loyal band of dedicated supporters volunteer to help run a range of fun activities for young Sky Blues supporters.

This auction will help to fundraise and support the valuable work that the Family Zone do in entertaining the next generation of Sky Blue supporters.
