Collaboration with Cambridge Judge Business School and Cambridge University Association Football Club

It may not have gone the way of Cambridge University Association Football Club in their Varsity Matches at the weekend, but they have played a part in helping the wider community this season.

Cambridge United have been working with the University of Cambridge Judge Business School to help raise £2,638 for the Community Trust.

The U’s were given permission by CUAFC to sell the university team’s football shirts for charity, with the business school displaying its logo on the front of the shirts, which have been on sale at Ryder & Amies on King’s Parade.

All profits have gone to the Cambridge United Community Trust, with the money used to implement a match reporting project for primary school children in Years 5 & 6, in partnership with the Cambridge Independent.

“We are really grateful to both Cambridge Judge Business School and CUAFC for collaborating on this innovative project and we’re delighted with the amount raised in the first year,” said U’s Community Trust CEO Ben Szreter. “This partnership shows the strength of different institutions within Cambridge working together to benefit the local community and we’re looking forward to continuing this relationship for the benefit of our community.”

The men’s Blues team were beaten 3-0 by Oxford in their Varsity Match, while the women were defeated 4-2 on penalties.

The match had finished 3-3, with Jen Atherton, Beverley Leon and Sophia d’Angelo on target.
