Citizenship Coursework... By Matthew Lee 10B Football Gala Day... For my chosen activity I helped out in "Football Gala Day" in a nearby village called collingham, I worked and helped out for the duration of 6 hours attempting to raise as much as much money as I could, through running a raffle, to help pay for many things. This event is a regular occurrence, it happens every year and it is always held in the month of June, last year it was held on June 16th. It is a real family day with many things going on, bouncy castles, raffles, running races, the football matches and of course the prize giving. The football club itself is a "Charter Standard Club" which means the club and its facilities have been approved by the F.A (Football Association). The club also has other facilities as well as the football the club as a whole is called the CALSA which stands for "The Collingham And Linton Sports Association." This involves Football, Squash, Cricket and Hockey all of which are held at one playing field and a sports hall in Collingham. ...read more.


I was delighted! But at about 12.00 I was still on and around the �30 mark so me and my co-worker decided to move our stall next to the drinks bar which of course on a warm day like that was the correct thing to do! Later on in the day I then offered to referee a couple of matches while the other refs sat down and had a drinks break. I was here helping those hot and tired referees by offering to do it whilst one or two had a drink and I helped the young 8 year old boys whose game I was refereeing. I later on also refereed a U12's match whilst again a regular referee had a break. It came to about 2.00 and the event was building up to its climax, the final. By this point some parents and children had gone home but most were still there waiting for the awards and were having a drink under the summer sun. The final came and went and it was now time for the awards for the past season's youth teams, I presented a team's awards and stepped down little to now there was an award waiting for me ...read more.


This pulled us in a lot of money with just one smart move! All in all I believe 6 hours work and �195.75 is worth is lot more than many things I have accomplished in my life so far... I really enjoyed working for the 6 hours in which I raised the �195.75 and I found the experience an absolute joy!. I will attempt to develop my involvement in the future in many ways for this year I will attempt to run the drinks stall and hopefully help run the raffle (With a Co-Worker) whilst refereeing a couple of games along the way hopefully continuing my involvement and furthering it in the things I will hope to do, obviously I will have to make some agreements with the club chairman but hopefully he will look at what I did last year and see it in me to be running such a popular stand. And with my experience from the previous year it will hopefully have develop my skills and may make it easier to run certain things in years to come. I have now seen that just 6 hours of work can really help so many people and make there life a joy for months and maybe years to come. By Matthew Lee 10B ...read more.
